Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from David Gelston, 9 December 1805

New York December 9th. 1805


In my letter of the 15th May last I enclosed your account, amount $111.82 (which was remitted 6th June following) you no doubt observed $8.12 charged for freight paid by Ship Fabius, and none charged per the Mercury, this was an error of mine,—the $8.12 was for freight paid by the Mercury, the account of freight by the Fabius, not being presented until this day, which I have paid, $14.42.

Very truly, I am, Sir, your friend, and obedient servant

David Gelston
