Extract from Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Jefferson Randolph

We are out of sallad-oil, and you know it is a necessary of life here. can any be had in Richmond? I must get you to enquire, and to be particular as to it’s quality. if fine I would be glad to have half a dozen quarts. if midling 2. or 3. bottles will do. if absolutely not good get a single bottle only to serve till I can get some from Philadelphia
