Washington Jan. 23. 09.
When I wrote my letter of the 7th. inst. I doubted whether I could as early as this place the monies therein stated at your command in Richmond. but this serves to inform you that I have this day desired messrs. Gibson & Jefferson to make a deposit in the bank of Richmond of 500. Dollars in your name and 500. D. in the name of mr Neilson. by the next post I shall be able to send you the Vouchers, but in the mean time it is subject to your orders on the bank. I will pray you to mention this to mr Nielson & to accept my best wishes.
