Dear Sir

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.
James Leitch. 125. 04
11 . Edmund Bacon 33. 75

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.

Th: Jefferson
