Extract from Daniel Webster’s Notes of a Conversation with Thomas Jefferson at Monticello

He enjoys his dinner well, taking with meat a large proportion of vegetables. He has a strong preference for the wines of the Continent, of which he has many sorts of excellent quality, having been more than commonly succesful in his mode of importing, & preserving them ... Dinner is served in half Virginian, half French style, in good taste & abundance. No wine is put on the table till the cloth is removed.
