Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from David Gelston, 21 August 1820

New York August 21st 1820–

Dear Sir,

It gave me much pleasure this morning, to receive your letter of the 13th from which I infer you enjoy good health—the two letters enclosed will be forwarded the very first good opportunity, which will probably offer in a few days.—

I also this morning received by the Comet, from Havre, a letter from Mr Beasley, enclosing bill of lading for a bale of books for you, which I shall ship to Richmond by the first good conveyance, after I have the means of ascertaining the duty, probably the invoice may be forwarded to you—

with very great respect & esteem,—I am; Dear Sir, your obedient Servant

David Gelston
