Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Patten Emmet, 7 June 1826

June 7th. 26.

My dear Sir

I regret that it is not in my power to give you the information which you desire. I perceive the Recorder’s name (R. Riker) and presume that the rest are Members of the Corporation and perhaps Aldermen as these have long been celebrated committee-men upon festive occasions.

with great respect

Jno P. Emmet

—Perhaps, Sir, your wish is to have the names merely deciphered without any regard to rank &c. They appear to me to be Jacob B.Taylor and John Yates Cebra.
