Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to James Gibbon, 14 June 1808

Washington June 14. 08.


Having ordered nothing from England, and no information of any thing destined for me from that country, I am totally ignorant of the contents of the box which is the subject of your letter of the 3d. inst. I must pray you therefore to have it opened & delivered to mr Jefferson for me, who will pay the duty according to valuation. on recieving information of the contents, from either yourself or him, I shall probably be able to say what is to be done with them. I salute you respectfully

Th: Jefferson

MHi: Coolidge Collection.
