Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Wilson Cary Nicholas, 30 April 1820

Warren Apl 30. 1820

My Dear Sir

The enclosed is a copy of a paper which was some time in your hands, which you turned over to the Treasury & it was afterwards assigned to me. In an attempt to [. . .] with Robinson’s estate they claim a credit for £396.10 said to be paid to Gibson & Jefferson in Novr 1800. G & J. say they received the money & gave you credit for it. I was only disposed to admit a credit for the three sums stated on the back of the assumpsit. Because I believed more had not been paid before it was the property of the N.I. if at all & because it wou’d appear from the enclosed extract from the report of the comptroller, upon which the judgement against Mr Randolph was awarded, that he had only credit for the three payments endorsed on the enclosed. You will greatly oblige me if you can give me any information upon this subject, which with out some aid I can not understand.

I am Dear Sir most respectfully & sincerely

W. C. Nicholas
