Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to James Westwood Wallace, 29 May 1819

Monticello May 29. 19.

Dear Sir

On the Suddenness of the request in the moment of your departure for a keep-sake in the style of Genl Washington’s & General Braddock’s razors. I could not at once recollect any thing exactly suitable. it has since occurred that the travelling razor case which I have been in the habit of using, might be a deposit for those razors, and make a compact thing of the whole, and as it is light I send it by mail for your acceptance with the assurance of my great esteem and respect.

Th: Jefferson
