Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Theodorus Bailey, 20 May 1824

Monto May 20. 24.

Dear Sir

I have found my letters for Europe to which I have taken the liberty of asking your attention get always to their destination with so much certainty, that I am tempted to abuse your goodness by often asking the same favor. the communicns with Leghorn, which the wants of our university will still for a while continue, are so necessary to that instn as to render their safe transmission greatly important. it is that concern which obliges me now to ask the favor of you to find a safe occn of transmitting the two inclosed lres the one to Leghorn the other to London. with this apology be pleased to accept the assurance of my constant frdship & respect.

Th: J.
