Monticello Apr. 11. 19.
Your favor of the 7th is recieved just as I am setting out for Poplar forest to be absent 3 weeks. I inclose you a blank for the bank of Virginia, and another for the US. bank. the other for this last bank I have prepared, but my grandson not being here to indorse it, I shall, unless he comes before I depart, inclose it to him to indorse and forward. at Poplar forest I shall be able to forward immediately any flour and tobo not yet sent down. in a letter of Mar. 19. mr Yancey assured me the tobacco should all be off in that month.
I have made several draughts on you lately. to wit.
|Mar.||9||.||in favor of||Joel Yancey for taxes||55.||65|
|25||Fr. A. Mayo bookseller||25.||37½|
|Apr||4||.||Wm F. Gray do||43.||28|
|8||.||A. Garrett for the University||300.|
I was not aware that the note for 1500.D. had been discounted for a month only, or I might have withheld some of these till I knew that my flour & tobo was all actually in Richmond. I salute you with great friendship & respect.
