This collection includes a single handwritten letter by former president Thomas Jefferson. The letter, dated December 26, 1814, was sent to John McAllister, an optician in Philadelphia. McAllister had crafted several sets of Jefferson’s lenses that were purchased during his second presidential term. Several years had passed since Jefferson bought the lenses and he had only just begun to use one of the sets McAllister had made. As he began using this particular set regularly, he found that a few didn’t work as desired. In the letter, Jefferson explains, in his eloquent style, what he perceives to be the problem and asks McAllister to repair the faulty lenses.
