D. the other for 675. £ sterl. cost here 3157. D 50 c the former for the purchase of a philosophical apparatus, the latter for that of Anatomical articles, according to details in those letters. the letter of July 28. covered a duplicate of the 1st bill of 1350. £ sterl. and the object of the present is to forward a duplicate of the 2d bill of 675. £ sterl. and referring to those letters entirely I repeat here the thankfulness with which we shall recieve the favor asked in them, and the assurance of my high respect and esteem personally.

Th: Jefferson
