Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Charles Cocke, 10 November 1807

PaineVille. 10th Novr ’07

Dear Sir

In answer to yrs of the 5 Inst. I have to say, that the horse of which you speak, is entirely broke to harness.

He possesses every quality of the carriage horse.

It may not be amiss to observe, that, two years ago, Majr Eggleston drove him. to the springs in a Gigg—and that Mrs E: has repeatedly driven him in her carriage since that time

I know not that Majr E is anxious to dispose of him: I have never heard him express a wesh to that effect; of this however you may be informed by application to himself.

I am respectfully Yrs &c

Chas Cocke.
