Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from William Wallace, 16 August 1821

Richmond Augt 16th 1821


Having on hand several Hhds of sound and fine flavour’d claret wine, which I sell to famelies at two and one half dollars Doz. or at Seventy five cents Galln by the Hhd the bottles, are to be found by the purchaser, or charged at nine Dollars groce, as claret wine in general sells from six to twelve dollors Doz. some doubts might be entertained as to the soundness of quality, of what I offer at such a reduced price

However should you not have a plentifull suply on hand, try some of what I offer, which On trial will prove equal to that sold at the high prices

I remain Sir yours most Respectfully

Wm Wallace
