Monticello July 2. 25.
The inclosed letter to mr King covers a bill of exche. for 1350. £ sterl. for the purchase of an Apparatus for our University, and the two accompanying letters are from two of our Professors on the same subject, wherefore I have placed them under my cover. the importance of these papers occasion me to take the liberty of assuring their safe passage to N.Y. under your cover and of requesting you to have them sent to London by the packet you think safest. I have great pleasure in every occasion of renewing to you the assurances of my constant esteem & respect.
