Thomas Jefferson Papers

Bernard Peyton to Thomas Jefferson, 2 March 1818

From Bernard Peyton

Richd 2 March 1818

Dear sir

I received yester the Plough & Box of Seed of which you spoke in your letter & will Ship them tomorrow to their different points of destination with all possible care.   I received many days since a Bill of Lading from Matthew Carey of Philadelphia for a Box of Books to your address which has never yet reached me, owing I suppose to the Ice in the Delaware, when it does, it shall be forwarded without loss of time.

I am pleased at every opportunity to render you a service.

With great respect & esteem Your very Obd: Servt:

Bernard Peyton

RC (MHi); endorsed by TJ as received 5 Mar. 1818 and so recorded in SJL.
