Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from David Gelston, 20 September 1804

New York Septr. 20th. 1804.


I have sent to the care of the Collector at Alexandria, by Capt. Wm. Sutherland in the Schr. two friends, two books, addressed to you, which I received from Lieut Leonard on his return from France—

This is the first opportunity I have had to send them by water—I was apprehensive they would be injured, if sent by land—

I have the honor to be, very respectfully—Sir, your obedient servant

David Gelston
