Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Charles Willson Peale, 13 February 1807

Washington Feb. 13. 07.

Dear Sir

Nothing would be wanting to fill up the measure of dissatisfaction with my present situation, but to see my friends adopt a stile of formality & distance towards me. be assured that your communications are always welcome, & the more so when the most frank. I shall make a proper use of that in your letter recieved last night.    I will thank you to procure for me a pair of the inkholders of ¾ I. square, & another of those 1. Inch square which you are so kind as to mention as now to be had in Philadelphia, and note their cost, which I will find the means of replacing.    I presume Capt Lewis will leave this about the close of the session of Congress.    Accept my friendly salutations and assurances of great esteem & respect

Th: Jefferson
