Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to David Ross, 13 March 1807

Washington Mar. 13. 07.


Your favor of the 2d. inst. was recieved in time to be delivered here to Capt. Clarke (now Genl. Clarke) together with a list from the Philosophical society of the bones of the Mammoth which they want. these are chiefly the bones of the head & foot. they also ask the bones of one or more distinct animals of very large size, which are known to be mingled with the others. I gave in charge to Genl. Clarke to suffer no abuse of your indulgence to take place. I return you thanks, in behalf of the Philosophical society, for the permission & accomodations you have been so kind as to give us, and add my respectful salutations & assurances of esteem.
