Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Laval, 20 May 1820

Philada May 20th 1820.


My last letter to you was written & forwarded on the 1st of April, it has been delayed by the fault of some of the Post Offices.

The Potter’s Euripides, I offered to you, was the Only one in the city, & is, as well as Woodhull’s, bound Calf extra, which is the cause of their high prices.

I shall have in September or October next Potter’s Euripides in boards, & will be able to afford it at $6.75/100

I have purchased for you, & send by this day’s mail, the Aschyllus Gr. & lat. 18o bound in Calf, I mentioned in my preceding letter.   the Price of it is $0.75—

I am with the highest Consideration & respect Sir, your most humble Servant

John Laval
