Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to John McAllister, 6 December 1806

Washington Dec. 6. 06.


I recieved safely the spectacles & glasses you were so kind as to send me by mr Mackie, and now inclose you a 20. Dollar bill of the bank of the US. the amount of their cost. the smallest pair of spectacles I am charmed with; they answer perfectly my wish. the other pair with double glasses I have not yet had time to try sufficiently and get them to fit my eye exactly. I have no doubt they also will answer my expectation. accept my salutations & best wishes
