Patrick Gibson to Thomas Jefferson, 4 August 1813

From Patrick Gibson

Richmond 4th August 1813—


I have received your favor of the 30th Ulto and shall attend to the several drafts therein mention’d Your note in bank fell due on the 30th and was paid, as you supposed it probable that your demands would exceed the amount in hand I have had Judah’s note discounted so that you may consider the whole as received—I have not yet been able to recover the money from Philpots for the 4 Hhds Tobo sold him in March ’12, altho suit has long since been brought upon his note by Wm Hay Jr

With great respect I am

Your obt Servt

Patrick Gibson

RC (ViU: TJP-ER); between dateline and salutation: “Thomas Jefferson Esqre”; endorsed by TJ as received 6 Aug. 1813 and so recorded in SJL.
