Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Bernard Peyton, 7 August 1823

Richd 7 Augt 1823

Dear Sir,

Your esteemd favor 2d curt is now before me— I took pleasure in making the remittance, by this day’s mail, your request, to J. H. Hall Esqe of Philada, in a Bank Check.

On examination, no Tin of the kind to suit you, was to be had in Town, a fresh supply is now coming up from a ship at City Point, & the eight Boxes you wrote for, shall be forwarded with all speed.

I was much rejoiced to find by your last, that you had so far recovered from your late indisposition as to be able to attend to business, I sincerely hope you are quite well again.

With great respect & esteem Yours very Truly,

Bernard Peyton
