Extract from James Barbour to Thomas Jefferson

Some years past I recollect to have drunk some ale at Monticello which I understood was of your own brewing. The manner of doing which you had obtained by a recipe from some intelligent Briton–Being desirous to introduce that kind of drink and having a facility in preparing the materials of which it is made you will oblige me much by furnishing me with a copy of the recipe as soon as your convenience will permit.
