Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Jacob Abbot Cummings, 6 May 1826

Monticello May 6. 26

Dear Sir

As you are occasionally sending supplies of books to your store here, I am in hopes it may not be inconvenient to supply a private application, and in that confidence request you, with your next parcel, to send me on my particular account those below mentioned. if there has not yet been an 8vo edition of Turner published, I would rather wait than have a 4to one. I hope our book room and shelves will be ready by the last of the month, and that the other boxes now in the country, but not yet here, will be here by that time. would it not be better to time your visit to our readiness to open the boxes. your’s with friendship and respect
