From Frank Carr
[received 18 Mar. 1816]
I was called on this Evening to set a broken leg of your man Moses. He is at Farley’s. It would be painful, & would derange what has been done, to move him. He will [be]1 taken care of & attended to where he is—The accident happened in a trial of strength in a wrestle with one of his fellows:
RC (ViU: TJP-CC); undated; addressed (ink stained): “Thomas Jefferson Esqe Monticello By [. . .]”; endorsed by TJ as received 18 Mar. 1816 and so recorded in SJL.
On 19 June 1816 TJ recorded payment of $10 to Betsy Farley for “a month’s board” of moses (MB description begins James A. Bear Jr. and Lucia C. Stanton, eds., Jefferson’s Memorandum Books: Accounts, with Legal Records and Miscellany, 1767–1826, 1997, The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, Second Series description ends , 2:1324).
