To Thomas Jefferson from George Jefferson, 24 February 1800

From George Jefferson

Richmond 24th. February 1800

Dear Sir

Mr. Anthony’s Clerk being at length instructed to receive the nailrod I inclose you his receipt for that which is delivered; the balance has not yet come down.

I sent your letter to Mr. Eppes by the way of Petersburg having a few days previous to the receipt of it got one from him in which he desired me to write to him in that way; it is therefore unaccountable how he came not to get your letters.

Mrs. E. I am happy to inform you is getting better, though I am sorry to add she is yet very low—being still confined to her bed. Mrs. R. is with her.

I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt.

Geo. Jefferson

RC (MHi); at foot of text: “Thos. Jefferson esqr.”; endorsed by TJ as received 3 Mch. and so recorded in SJL. Receipt not found.

I sent your letter: see TJ to Mary Jefferson Eppes, 12 Feb. 1800.
