From Thomas Jefferson to John Barnes, 29 August 1806

Monticello Aug. 29. 06.

Dear Sir

Your favor of the 22d. I found on my return here two or three days ago, and I now inclose you a check on the bank of the US. for 1550. D. which I will pray you to apply as follows.

remit to  Oliver Evans of Philadelphia 344. 96
Messrs. Jones & Howell of do. 137. 10
pay  Thomas Carpenter 110. 33
credit  me in your accts. 373. 32
remit to  me by post 584. 29

I should be glad to recieve the remittance of 584.20, say 585. D. by the mail which leaves Washington on the 8th. of Sep. because that being the stage mail it will come safer than by the horse–mail of the Friday. we are all in good health here, & the family wish to be remembered to you. I fix on the last day of September for my departure hence, & Oct. 3. for my arrival at Washington. Accept my affectionate salutations.

Th: Jefferson
