To Thomas Jefferson from Bernard Peyton, 3 June 1822

Richd 3 June 1822

Dear Sir,

I am just favor’d with yours of the 25th curt, & am pleased to be able to say, that I recd on friday last the money expected from the Literary fund—$3,000 of which is at your credit—I have this day pd your dft: favor A. Robinson for $150—

The coffee you write for shall be forwarded tomorrow, I send to-day, by Woods Boat a small bundle for you, from Philada, which I wish safe to hand—he will probably leave it with Vest at Milton—

Jefferson is here, his Tobacco will be sold tomorrow, I hope at a long price—say $5 @ 12 general sales—I hope yours from Bedford will turn out better than last year—I will do the best possible with it—in haste

Yours Very Truly

B Peyton
