From Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Leiper, 29 November 1791

To Thomas Leiper

Philadelphia Nov. 29. 1791


I was in hopes Capt Stratton would have brought the 6. hhds. of my tobo. which still remain at Richmond. But he is come without them. I had waited supposing that on his arrival I might have settled the whole purchase with you. I shall immediately order them by the first vessel without waiting for Stratton. For the present however I must ask the favor of you to furnish me with a thousand dollars, cash, or a discountable note, as shall be most convenient to you. I am Sir Your very humble servt,

Th: Jefferson
