Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Vaughan, 29 April 1820

Philad. 29 April 1820

Dr Sir

I am gratified by the receipt of your favor of 24th The Seal is elegant simple & Classical. & I cannot doubt the superior success of an institution so liberally planned; I hope the jealousy of those who are disappointed because the managemt is not given to them will be perfectly harmless—altho’ I suppose those attached to Wm & Mary, will try to give importance to their efforts

I have received 750$ from Mr Barret the Bursur & inclose a receipt for his accot to serve as a Voucher—

Whenever your remittance of 650$ is announced as ready I shall immediately attend to your wishes, by procuring Dfts of Giràrd & remitting 444$ to appleton & 206 to Dodge—

M Correa is tolerably well, but as you may concieve anxious at the possible issue of passing events both here, Europe & S America—I do not find that he has absolutely fixed the moment of Departure

I remain D Sir Your friend as ever

Jn Vaughan
