To John Barnes
Monticello Mar. 15. 12
Having several small sums to pay in George town, in order to spare Messrs Gibson & Jefferson the embarrasment of making so many fractional remittances, I have taken the liberty of desiring them to include the whole in a round sum of 200.D. and inclose it to you, presuming on your usual goodness that you will make the distribution for me, to wit
|R. C. Weightman, exact sum unknown, but it is under||8.||89|
as you will recieve this in a few days, I shall write to the several persons to call on you. Accept the assurance of my constant and affectionate regard
