Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Thomas H. Storm, 29 April 1806

Washington Apr. 29. 1806.


Your letter is just come to hand, acknowledging the reciept of mine of Mar. 14. 1805. wherein I requested a supply of Nebioule wine. in yours you mention that you will immediately send a box of 50 bottles to Leghorn in search of a conveyance. accept my thanks for this attention, & should the box get to the hands of mr Appleton our Consul there, he will find a safe passage for it. as to the apprehensions at Turin that this wine will not bear transportation to America, I think them unfounded. it has more body than the Montepulciano, which shipped in autumn & in common black bottles (not flasks) comes in perfect good order. I shall hope therefore to recieve the further supply you propose to forward me, and shall punctually pay your draught at 30. days sight, on me, for the amount. whether such a bill could be sold at Leghorn for cash so as to prevent the inconvenience of an advance, I am not informed, altho’ I think it possible. I salute you with respect & consideration.
