Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Bernard Peyton, 26 April 1825

Richd 26 Apl 1825

Dear Sir,

I hand herewith your current to date, agreeable to your request, & regret that I should have omitd rendering it on the 1st Instant, according to your standing order— I recd your covering notes for the renewal of yours at Bank, which shall be properly applied, if I had not been furnished with a power of att’y, inconvenience would have frequently occurd in renewing your notes—it is very difficult for country gentlemen to bear such things in mind every 60 days—

I am glad to hear the University is going on so well, it has had to labour under several inconveniences this session, which I trust will all be obviated before the commencement of the next—The absence of Mr Tucker is unaccountable, & the vacancy in the Law Professor ship is complained of—

Yours very Truly

Bernard Peyton

Your Bll Copper went yesterday, to care of J & Raphael; at Charlottesville, & a Box of Books or instruments, from France, for the University, to Mr Brockenbgh
