George Jefferson to Thomas Jefferson, 9 December 1811

From George Jefferson

Richmond 9th Decr 1811

Dear Sir

I duly received your much esteemed favor of the 29th, and should greatly prefer the mode which you are so good as to propose respecting the bond, but I had previously ask’d the favor of Doctor Wardlaw to join in it, who consented so willingly, that I should not like now to leave him out.— I leave this tomorrow for Norfolk, and expect the vessel in which I am to embark, (the Elizabeth Wilson) will be ready to sail on my arrival.

I will pay particular attention to your direction respecting wines, but fear from what I have heard, that you ought not to calculate upon receiving your supplies from Lisbon shortly.

Wishing you all possible happiness, and hoping that I shall find you on my return in perfect health,

I am my dear Sir Your ever truly grateful friend

Geo. Jefferson
