Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Henry Voigt, 15 February 1808

Philada. 15th February 1808.

Honored Sir

Having met with an opportunity by Joseph Clay Member of the House of Representatives from this State to Congress, to send your Watches, I expect you will have received them unhurt, before this comes to hand. I hope your pocket Clock is cured from striking contrary to what is pointed by the hands on the dial: It appeared to me for some time past, an incurable fault in the first construction of the Cadrature which governs the striking part; but a little Study has overcome that difficulty, and it has struck regular since it was done and in my care.

I am Sir Your very obedient Servant.

Henry Voigt
