Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from J. Louis Fernagus De Gelone, 28 January 1819

New York January—28. 1819.


 I had no copy of Euler’s Algebra, when I sent you the last
box in the beginning of this month. I found one per chance
this morning in private hands…2 8vo in boards. $4.50.
 I received yesterday the honour of
your letter with a note of $20. which was too much
by 2 dollars.  2.00

I send you per mail this day the 1rst vol. of Euler’s Algebra, and next week the 2ond shall be sent. I still owe you the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th vol. of Tacitus.—

As to any good translation of Eschylus and Sophocles, I have none and know none in town. I will try to procure them here or from Europe.

I am most respectfully Sir Your most humble obedient Servant

Fernagus De Gelone.
