Extract from Joseph C. Cabell to Thomas Jefferson

P. S. I have just copied the your manuscript on meteorological subjects, in which you have condensed a vast variety of most instructive & amusing information. It is astonishing how you could find time, in the midst of your other engagements to make such a prodigious number of observations. I enclose the paper to Mr Madison by to-day’s mail.
