From Thomas Mann Randolph, Jr.
Richmond May 4. 1792
I have found it more convenient to send you a bill for the money you were so kind as to pay for me, than a Hhd. of Tobacco; allmost every Hhd. of mine, having been considerably damaged in their passage down the river, by heavy rains. Yours I am much afraid has allso been injured.
I feel myself disposed to continue your debtor rather than make such an ordinary return as my thanks for this addition to the many favors you have conferd on me. I must add to the number by requesting you to send Patsy a copy of Lavaters Moral Aphorisms. I left her and Ann well eight days since.—I have the bonds for Mr. Eppes with me and shall have the satisfaction of delivering them at Eppington in a few days.—I am Dear Sir Your most sincere friend & obedt. Servt.,
Thos. Mann Randolph
