Thomas Jefferson Papers

George Jefferson to Thomas Jefferson, 19 March 1810

From George Jefferson

Richmond 19th Mar: 1810.

Dear Sir

I duly received your favor of the 15th inclosing 200$, which amount is remitted to Jones & Howell agreeably to your direction.

Some plaister of Paris has just arrived for you. I do not know the quantity, the Captain not having called for his freight, & we not having received a bill of lading.—I suppose it to be 4 or 5 Ton. Is it to go to Monticello, or to Bedford? and if to the former, is it to go by other than Mr Randolph’s boats?

I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt

Geo. Jefferson

RC (Mrs. T. Wilber Chelf, Mrs. Virginius Dabney, and Mrs. Alexander W. Parker, Richmond, 1944; photocopy in ViU: TJP); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esqr”; endorsed by TJ as received 22 Mar. 1810 and so recorded in SJL.

TJ’s favor of 15 Mar. 1810 and his 25 Mar. 1810 response to this letter are both recorded in SJL, but neither has been found.
