Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from DeWitt Clinton, 7 March 1822

Albany 7 March 1822

Dear Sir

I have the pleasure of transmitting to you a report relative to the State of our Canals.

I also take the liberty of enclosing two metallic pens made by the Shakers near this City: They can manufacture enough for the supply of the U.S.—and their pens write better and are much cheaper than any imported.

With entire respect I am Your most Obedt servt

DeWitt Clinton
