Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Edmund Bacon, 8 June 1807

Washington June 8. 07.


I inclose you four hundred and eighty dollars to be paid as follows.

to mr John Carr for J. Perry. 100
James Walker 100 .
Wm. Maddox 45 .60
Dabney Carr on acct of W. Maddox 28 .67
J. Kelly on acct. of Hugh Chisolm 75 .87
Mr. Randolph for Wm. Duane 7 .
your corn debt to J. Gillam 120 .
on account     2 .86
480 .

I will make you a further remittance the next month for your other debts. perhaps mr J. Carr (who I saw owed something for nails) may be willing to let you retain that much out of what you have to pay him, which may pay some of your small debts. by a letter of Apr. 31. from mr Griffin, he informed me he had forwarded 1100. 1b of bacon, with other articles to Warren to the care of mr Benjamin Johnson. the other articles I suppose were butter, tallow, soap & perhaps salt beef. I hope you recieved notice & have immediately sent for them. his letter was near a month coming to hand or I should have mentioned it sooner. I hope to hear in your next that you have finished the abutment of the mill dam. we have had very heavy rains here. I tender you my best wishes.

Th: Jefferson
