To Thomas Jefferson from George Jefferson, 1 April 1799

From George Jefferson

Richmond 1st. April 1799.

Dear Sir,

I intended to have written you by Mr. Richardson myself, but was out of the way. Since that 10 Hhds: more of your Tobacco have come down, from Bedford, making in all 19—so that there is now only one remaining—  This article is now very dull at 48/. & 50/ Cash, a prime parcel of 40 Hogsheads I understand was sold a few days ago at 9$: on a credit of 90 days.  I hope the next accounts from Europe may not prove more unfavorable—in which case I am inclined to think the panic which appears at present to prevail may in a little time subside, and the price again revive.

I have received a bill of lading from Mr. Barnes of 18 Packages shipped for you the 12th. ultimo—yet they have not arrived.

The chimney piece is forwarded.

I am Dear Sir Your Very Humble servt.

Geo: Jefferson
