George Jefferson to Thomas Jefferson, 25 July 1811

From George Jefferson

Richmond 25th July 1811

Dear Sir

I inclose as you direct 200$.—I likewise inclose an account of the sale of your last 54 barrels of flour, the net proceeds as you will observe, being $:429.¹⁷⁄₁₀₀.—This should have been forwarded some time ago, had I not received a letter from you informing me there was more to come down, which induced me to keep it back, with the view of including the whole in one account. As however no more has yet arrived, I conclude that you must have been mistaken as to the quantity. I yesterday sent up by Johnson, some nail rod & iron lately received, together with a small box received some time ago.— I will endeavour to sell your Tobacco seperately as you suggest, but fear the chance is bad, as the demand even for the very finest quality has greatly subsided.

I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt

Geo. Jefferson

RC (MHi); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esqr”; endorsed by TJ as received 28 July 1811 and so recorded in SJL.

A letter from TJ to Jefferson of 21 July 1811, recorded in SJL but not found, probably dealt with TJ’s completion that day of the payment of Tufton overseer William McGehee’s 1810 wages by drawing on Gibson & Jefferson for $180 in McGehee’s favor (MB description begins James A. Bear Jr. and Lucia C. Stanton, eds., Jefferson’s Memorandum Books: Accounts, with Legal Records and Miscellany, 1767–1826, 1997, The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, Second Series description ends , 2:1267). A letter from TJ to Jefferson of 22 July 1811, previously accounted for above, was located after print publication of this volume, has been added digitally, and will appear in the concluding supplement to the print edition.
