Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Bernard Peyton, 4 March 1822

Richd 4 Mar: 22

Dear Sir,

I have been all anxiety to get your Corks off, but there has not been a Waggon down, that I have been able to see or hear of, since I recd your order—to-day I have meet with Johnson, who promises to take charge of them: I have pressed him to take your Plaister also, but I fear he will not.—I find greater difficulty in getting loading taken up by Boats this season than I have ever known before.

Your Books from Balto: are not yet to hand, or heard from, the vessel is surely not yet detained by Ice—

I hope to see you at Monticello tomorrow week, mean time, remains

Yours very truly

B. Peyton
