Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from L. Ashburner, 16 December 1824

Decr 16th 1824 Stockbridge Massachusetts Berkshire County.


During a long residence in India I had occasion to correspond with Captn Jacob Crowninshield of Salem to whom I sent two specimens of wheat of the most fertile Provinces: these specimens he wrote me, were forwarded to you, as one of the Judicious Agriculturists of the Union.

I have taken the liberty of writing to you, to learn if these specimens vegetated and if they afforded grain of a superior quality.

With very great respect I remain Sir Yours very Obtly

L Ashburner
