Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Munroe, 28 July 1806

Monticello July 28. 06.


I now inclose you a warrant for 10,000 D. the post coming twice a week will enable you to apply whenever money is wanting, by letter to me, only taking care to write a week before it is wanting. if the difficulties arising in the law suits of the city can be got over till the Attorney general & myself return to the city, they shall be the subject of consultation to see what can be done. the impossibility of selling lots is extremely embarrassing, and I confess I see nothing which is to bring them into demand, unless some new incitement can be devised to draw population to the city. nor do I foresee any other practicable incitement but the extending the canel from the little falls through Georgetown & Washington to the Eastern branch.   Accept my salutations & respects.
