Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Leiper, 10 May 1791

To Thomas Leiper

Philadelphia May 10. 1791.


Capt. Stratton arrived last night with the 4. hhds. of tobo. for which I gave you the bill of lading some time ago. He will call on you to-day. I should like that it were examined, because I believe, from the marks, that it is of the Bedford tobo.—I mentioned to you sometime ago that I believed I should have occasion for about 400. Dollars of this money, to be obtained by discount at the bank. As I leave town about the last of the week on a journey Northwardly, during which I shall need this money, I will beg the favor of a note for that sum in a form negociable at the bank.—I must beg that the painters may be ready to go to work on Monday, that the smell may be vanished before my return. I am Sir Your very humble servt,

Th: Jefferson

PrC (MHi).
