Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to William Barret, 30 October 1822

Monticello Oct. 30. 22.


At the date of my letter of the last month I thought I could not be surer of any thing than that I could within a few days remit you 750.D. I had the flour waiting in my mill for a shower only to enable boats to go down. yet so obstinate has been the drought that it was not till the day before yesterday that a fortunate rain enabled me to send off some boat loads, the sale of which will enable Colo Peyton to pay you 750.D. which I have requested him to do as soon as he could make sale of it. I mentioned to him that I should request you to call on him for that sum out of the proceeds, which be pleased to do, and to accept the assurance of my great esteem and respect.

Th: Jefferson
