Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to Charles F. Kupfer, 25 June 1819

To Charles F. Kupfer

Monticello June 25. 19.


My letter of June 15. informed you that having written to messrs Smith and Riddle for a supply of window glass before I heard of their failure, & not hearing from them, I apprehended their connection with the manufactory might have ceased, and I therefore requested the supply from you. I yesterday recieved a letter from mr Smith informing me he had delivered the glass to Capt Peyton for me, of which I think it proper to give you notice in order to prevent a double supply. I salute you with respect.

Th: Jefferson
