Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Bernard Peyton, 29 April 1825

Monto Apr. 29. 25.

Dear Sir

Having occasion to apply to Doctr Greenhow of N.Y. to procure for the university some anatomical preparns, and unable to conjecture the exact cost, I desired him to consign the packages to you, and to draw on you for the amount, notifying me of it at the same time. I recd his letter yesterday stating the prime cost to be 84.D. to which there may be some addnal charges. I immedly went to mr Brockenbro’ and desired him to place, by this mail, 100.D. in your hands to meet the draught on you from N.Y. as the preparns will not stand well the justling of a waggon I must pray you to have them sent by a boat which will undertake to keep them dry to Milton, or rather if possible to the Shadwell mills. affectly yours

Th J.
