Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Benjamin Henry Latrobe, 30 November 1806

Washington Novr. 30th. 1806

Dear Sir

The very unfavorable weather of yesterday rendered it impossible for me to procure all the information necessary to compleat the enclosed report before the evening, & then, having no servant of my own here, I could not procure it to be conveyed to you agreeably to promise.

In order to avoid intrusion on your time at the present near approach of the Session, I do not wait upon You. I have left the left side blank, for such observations are you may be pleased to make. When reviewed by you, I shall immediately transmit to You, two Copies of the report and the drawing,—of which, having no Clerk here I shall be unable to present more than one.

I am with true respect yrs

B Henry Latrobe
