Gibson & Jefferson to Thomas Jefferson, 12 February 1812

From Gibson & Jefferson

Richmond 12th Feby 1812—


We have received your note by Mr Johnson there are at present no ploughs to be procured here, Saml1 Adams is in daily expectation of receiving some of Peacock’s—Vail & Rogers likewise expect a supply of the Cary plough— we have been equally unfortunate in our search after Burnet seed, the only chance of obtaining it, is from Mr Graham, who informs us that he does not know until he sees his Overseer whether he will have any to spare—We have sold your 59 barrels flour at 9¾$—

Your obedt Servts
