Monticello July 29. 1804.
I find we are in immediate want of Sherry here. I will therefore thank you to pack up 240. bottles of the London Sherry you have and forward it by the first vessel from Georgetown or Alexandria to Richmond to the address of Gibson & Jefferson merchants of that place, marking the packages TJ. Monticello. I arrived here in good health & found my family well. I hope you will keep yourself still for the benefit of your leg. nothing but rest & time will restore it. Accept my kind salutations & good wishes.
