From George Jefferson
Richmond 9th. Febr. 1801.
I have at length effected a settlement of Mr. Shorts account with Mr. Brown; the balce. of £112.1.5. which was found to be due by Mr. B. his account which you will find inclosed, I have received. I was surprised to find that the fees which have caused a delay of 9 or 10 months in the adjustment of this account, amount only to 47/.
I shall wait for Mr. Barnes to draw for this money, or for him to direct us to forward it in notes, as we cannot procure a bill. of this be pleased to inform him.
I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt.
