Thomas Jefferson to John Barnes, 15 March 1812

To John Barnes

Monticello Mar. 15. 12

Dear Sir

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

to  Henry Foxall 55. 46½
Richard Barry 70. 52
Joseph Millegan 65. 12½
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

Th: Jefferson
