Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Wood, 27 July 1819

Petersburg 27th July 1819

Dear Sir

I take the liberty to send you the inclosed circulars, and would esteem it a favour, if you found it convenient to afford me information in regard to any of the particulars mentioned. About two months ago I gave your pocket sextant to Captain Bernard Peyton of Richmond who has since informed me it was forwarded to you. I received the greatest benefit from it in surveying the rivers—

I remain with great respect & esteem your obedient Servant

John Wood
