Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Smith & Riddle, 15 June 1819

Monticello June 15. 19

On the 6th of May I asked the favor of you to have me furnished with the supply of Window glass therein stated. I soon afterwards learned that you were thrown into difficulties by the misfortunes of the times. not having heard from you & supposing you might no longer continue to act for the manufactory of glass at Boston, I have this day written to mr Kupfer their agent at Boston for the same supply, of which I have thought it proper to inform you to prevent the danger of a double supply. Accept the assurances of my respect.
