House of Representatives Decr. 11. 1807
I now have the pleasure of acknowledging the receipt of your note of yesterday. You must be mistaken as to the Cyder. I recollect that at your request I had Cyder procured for you several times, but it is my firm belief that you have paid for the same.
Through the assistance of a friend some mrytle wax was obtained for you, said to be 30. Ct but as I did not weigh it, I am not certain that that was the exact weight. The wax was sent to the care of Mr. Dubois of Alexandria accompanied with a letter addressed to you. I gave for the wax thirty Cents a pound.
Recieve the assurances of my high respect and consideration
