Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Edmund Bacon, 11 January 1807

Washington Jan. 11. 07.


I inclose you two hundred and forty five dollars, to wit

for mr Dinsmore 20.  D.
mr Chisolm 50.
mr Walker 100.
yourself on account  75 

the 75. for yourself you will pay to those you think best. if mr Perry is with you, tell him I retain 100. D. which I will either remit to him or to mr Speer as he shall direct. mr Speer told me it was to be paid to him, but I wait mr Perry’s order to do that.

I think it well that mr Grady should lodge with you till we can build his house. indeed after further reflection I think I can fix a place for the nailery more convenient to you, and as much so to myself; or perhaps indeed let it remain where it is. this we will decide on when I come home which will be in two months from this time. I wish you to keep a very exact account of all the toll the mill recieves, for a whole year that we may know hereafter what yearly dependance to place on her. I remind you to have all pressing jobs done before I come home that I may have all the hands during March & April. accept best wishes.
