Monticello Mar: 29th 1819.

Dear Sir

Enclosed I take the liberty of handing you three hastily written papers:

1—On the Culture of Swedish Turnip.

2—On that of Guinea Grass.

3—Respecting Ox Yokes, with an accompanying Model.

Should they prove useful either to yourself; or the agricultural Gentlemen of this State I shall be highly gratified.

It is my intention to proceed from here to London; there to reside for the present. If I can be of any service to you, or to your family or friends; I pray you to command me freely on all occasions.

I have the honor to be, Dr Sr Your respectful Hble: Servt

Petty Vaughan
