Thomas Jefferson to Patrick Gibson, 21 October 1813

To Patrick Gibson

Monticello Oct. 21. 13.

Dear Sir

Your favor of the 13th with 300.D. inclosed is duly recieved, and I now return you the note for the bank filled up with 2000.D. the additional 500 D. being intended to cover my draughts until I shall get some flour down. I am concerned to learn that flour is but at 5.D. in Richmond. I see by the prices current of Philada it is there at 10.D. and some gentlemen now with me & recently from Baltimore assure me wheat was selling there at 1. D 60 presuming from this that there is a prospect of exportation during the winter, I am in hopes it will at length have some effect on the Prices at Richmond. Accept the assurance of my esteem & respect

Th: Jefferson

PoC (facsimile in catalogue of 24 Mar. 1988 auction at Swann Galleries, New York City, lot 90); at foot of text: “Mr Gibson.” Recorded in SJL as a letter to Gibson & Jefferson. Enclosure not found.
