Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Cooper to Thomas Jefferson, [22 April 1819]

From Thomas Cooper

Thursday [22 Apr. 1819]

Dear Sir

Mr John Vaughan as I am not yet able to walk about has undertaken to buy the Stoves and see them duly shipped to Capt Peyton at Richmond to whom I will write when they are put on board the packet. I greatly regret to see in the papers that a wing of your house has been destroyed by fire: but I hope it amounts to no injury but what can be repaired.

I remain always with high respect your obliged friend

Thomas Cooper
