Thomas Jefferson Papers

Jacob Van Lennep and Claude Daniel Crommelin to Thomas Jefferson, 1 June 1821

From Jacob van Lennep and Claude Daniel Crommelin

Charlottesville, June 1st 1821.

Mr Van Lennep & Mr Crommelin beg to present their respects to Thos Jefferson Esqr & to express their regrets at having been obliged to forego the honor of waiting on him to day, the thunderstorm having caught them on their way to Monticello & compelled them to return to Charlottesville.—It has been the more a matter of great disappointment to them, as in consequence of previous arrangements they are leaving to morrow for Richmond.—

RC (MHi); in an unidentified hand; dateline at foot of text; endorsed by TJ as received 6 June 1821 and so recorded in SJL.
