To Fernagus De Gelone
Monticello Mar. 31. 17.
Your favor of the 15th is at hand, covering an account of the books forwarded, balance due you 13.D. which I now inclose you in Virginia bank bills. I hope shortly to hear of the safe arrival of the books at Richmond, and tender you my salutations and assurances of respect.
