Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to John Barnes, 28 June 1818

To John Barnes

Monticello June 28. 18.

Dear Sir

I know not from whom or what quarter the inclosed letter to Wanscher comes, nor whether he is still living. I suppose it is from Germany, and invoke your charity to dispose of it according to circumstances. I do it with the more pleasure as it gives me new occasion to repeat to you the assurances of my constant friendship and respect.

Th: Jefferson

PoC (MHi); on verso of reused address cover of William Peck to TJ, 10 Apr. 1818; at foot of text: “Mr Barnes”; endorsed by TJ. Enclosure not found.
