From Charles Clay
this Afternoon, Mr Joseph Gilmore Called on me with a letter from Col: T. M. Randolph, who write me he was Just about Setting out for Canada, in his letter to me on particular business of our own he enclosed a couple of Reciepts for Money ($1,111.78) by him paid to Messrs Gibson & Jefferson in Richmond for your use & disposial, his Reasons for sending them forward were that he did not know but you might want to make some disposition of the money immediately from Bedford where he expected you would Recieve them from me before you left this, he calculated to be certainly gone before your Return to Albemarle, as you1 were off this Morning, I had no alternative but by the post or enclosed again by Mr Gilmore, I prefered the latter mode as thinking it the Safest, especially as he promises to wait on you immediately on his Return at Monticello
