Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Thomas Claxton, 17 February 1809

Capitol 17th Feb

Honord Sir

You will please to excuse the crude state of the inclosed, it having been executed by my son, a small boy, and whole time being occupied, I have not had leisure to put it in form—I flatter myself Sir, you will pay such attention to my note of last evening, as you may deem me worthy of—I presume you had not receivd it when Joseph came away—

In addition to this inventory, Mr. Lamare sent me a supplement, which gave a view of the Copper ware, which I have unfortunately mis laid—He can supply its place in a few minutes if required

In great haste I have the honor to be Sir Your Most obt. & Hble Svt

Thos Claxton
