Dear Sir

After the inclosed was written & delivered to mr Coles, your servant arrived; I therefore send it by him instead of mr Coles. the purchase of the horse may lie till we meet in Washington as I shall not be in want of one during the winter. the two boxes with the harpsichord, table Etc were sent to mr Higginbotham yesterday to be forwarded by the boats to Gibson & Jefferson. a rod belonging to the pedal of the harpsichord was omitted in packing, & is now delivered to your servant. I set out for Washington tomorrow morning. I salute you with constant & great affection.

Th: Jefferson
