Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from William Tatham, 23 July 1807

Lynhaven 23d. July 1807.

Dr. Sir.

All today as last night, nothing new. The Tenders said to get supplies at the Wash Woods. I think it probable that the Triumph is sharing the provision taken from on board the Medway & others without the Capes; as they have been alongside each other ever since her veture into Port.

Commodore De Catur is now on Board my Boat here; & tells me he is coming to you at Washington immediately: We are just going out to examine this Interesting harbour.

I have the honor to be Dr Sir Yrs. &c—

Wm Tatham
