Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to John Barnes, 12 August 1807

Monticello Aug. 12. 07.

Dear Sir

On the 1st. inst. I accepted Mr. Cathalan’s bill of exchange for 31.33 D payable to mr Davidson at the bank US. at 15. days sight. it had escaped my attention till this moment, but as this letter will be in Washington the evening of the 14th. I hope it will be in time—I therefore inclose 30. D. & ask the favor of you to take up the bill, adding for me the little fraction of 1.33 towards which I have no smaller paper than a 20. D. bill. I salute you with affection & respect.

Th: Jefferson
