Thomas Jefferson Papers

Frederick A. Mayo to Thomas Jefferson, 21 February 1821

From Frederick A. Mayo

Richmond the 21 Febr 1821

Honorable1 Sir

The two boxes of Books have been received2 in good Order—I find after some little examination that in the Analectic Magazine the number (November 1819) is wanting, and that a Number of the Port Folio, (April 1815) was in place of it, which no doubt your honour had overlookt, as we did not [r]eceive any more of the P. Folio accept this number—All the different Directions respecting the Books, shall be most particular observed, and they all will be ready for delivery3 in the course of three weeks the furthes

Your humble Servant

Frederick A Mayo
