Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Thomas Newton, 21 March 1807

Norfolk March—21st. 1807

Dr Sir

Agreeable to your request I now send to the care of Mr Deblois, a Keg of Myrtle wax—The gentleman who forwarded it to me has not informed me of the quantity. I have not seen it, I shall be pleased if you find it to be of a good quality—We had the day before yesterday a great fall of snow—Great part of it yet remains—The weather is uncommon for this season—we have ice in abundance. Recieve the assurances of my high respect and consideration

Tho: Newton
