From George Jefferson

Dear Sir,

I am duly favor’d with yours of the 7th. and will attend to Mr. Eppes’s draught should it appear.

I will also attend to your direction about the molasses; You did I recollect desire me to send up a Hogshead in the course of the winter provided it could be had at some certain price which you named, & I informed you immediately it could not be had at that price then, & I expected it would not be lower, and should therefore decline sending any. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt.

Geo. Jefferson

For TJ’s request for molasses the previous winter, see his letter to George Jefferson of 19 Dec. 1799. I informed you: George Jefferson to TJ, 26 Dec. 1799.
