Alexandria August 5h 1806
When at your House last April you espressed to me a desire to procure a Silk Rug for the purpose of some experiment. At my return I enquired for that article but then could find none. I now have the pleasure to inform you that there are in this place some raw Silk from 6 to 8/4 size and if that kind would answer I would send one to you at the City if you please
You will please permit me on this occasion to assure you of my great esteem and veneration for you and am with profound respect, your Huml. Servt.
