Monticello. Sep. 2. 04.
Your favors of Aug. 7. & 21. came to hand in due time. from them I collect the following estimate of my funds, since my departure
|1804||July||21.||paid||Williams of Phila||71||.87|
|Aug.||7.||Gibson & Jeff.||800||.|
|10.||Jones & Howell||249||.33|
|Jones & Kain||28|
|21.||Gibson & Jeff||250||.|
|Aug. 4.||Salary for July||2083.33|
|Sep. 4.||Salary for Aug.||2083.33|
|Paiments to be made|
|to bank US||1000.|
|Wanscher ord. Aug.||20|
|to be now remitted to me||250||2570.|
On this view of the subject I must pray you after paying Wanscher & Lemaire’s sums to remit me immediately 250. D. in bills of the bank US. and as there will not remain enough for mr Short’s remittance, and I have further indispensable calls here towards the end of the month, we must retain it, & remit to him the next month. Lenox’s must also wait till then & the rather as I have no notice yet that his work is done.
We shall be happy to see you here and to have your visit lengthened as much as you can. Drop me a line the post before your setting out, and my servant who goes always for my mail to Milton, shall carry a horse for you. It will save you 2½ miles in 5. and of the very worst road of the whole. I salute you with affection & best wishes.
