Dear Sir,

I am in sentiment with you & the Director of the Mint, respecting the purchase of the Lots & Houses which are offered for sale in preference to Renting – as the latter will certainly exceed the interest of the former. –

That all the applications may be brought to view, & can indeed, for coining & c ; – Mr. Lear will lay the letters and engravings before you to be shewn to the Director of the Mint. – I have no other object or wish in doing it than to obtain the best

Y[ou]rs. & c.

Mr. Jefferson
