Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Mathew Carey, 19 June 1821

Monticello June. 19. 21.

Dear Sir

I have been longer inattentive to my little account with you than I ought perhaps to have been expecting the arrival of Baxter’s history & the publication of the American edn of Sinclair’s code, formerly desired. I correct the omission by now inclosing you 10. Dollars on account. looking over your letters & mine they mention only the Nautical Almanacs 5.D. & Conversations in Chemistry (price not named) furnished since my last remittance. whatever balance this may make either way, may remain in account between us, I salute you with great esteem and respect.

Th: Jefferson

PHi: Lea & Febiger Records.
