Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Francis Walker Gilmer, 29 November 1819

Richmond. Nov. 29. 1819.

dear Sir.

Mr William B. Page of Frederick has put into my hands as counsel a long record, from which I find, that on the 3d Augt. 1787. a judgement was obtained by yourself and Mr Eppes executors of Mr Wayles against Col: Byrd for £96.. 12. 9.. 3. and costs—when assets. Mr Page is executor of Mrs Byrd who was executrix of her husband: he will soon be able to pay the debt: the attention of counsel will not be required; it is only necessary that you should be aware of the claim and that it will be paid. It is to apprize you of these circumstances which in so great a lapse of time you might have forgotten that I write.

Accept my best wishes &c.

F. W. Gilmer
