Thomas Jefferson to Alrichs & Dixon, 11 March 1813

To Alrichs & Dixon

Monticello Mar. 11. 13.

Messrs Alrichs & Dixon

I was much concerned to learn by a letter from Messrs Gibson & Jefferson of Richmond that they found difficulty in procuring a bill for the remittance I desired to be made to you. I immediately wrote to them to inclose you a hundred dollar bank bill of Richmond, which I doubted not you could have exchanged. the difference between this & the amount of your bill would be no more than a just compensation for the delay. I am in expectation of recieving instructions from you as to the carding machine. I am the more encouraged to hope they will enable me to use it, by recieving information from mr Burwell that with that which you furnished him with he recieved from you such minute directions that he was able to set his to work himself without any difficulty. we are much retarded in our spinning for want of it. Accept my best wishes & respects.

The day before TJ composed this letter, Alrichs & Dixon wrote him from Delaware acknowledging receipt of the bill for the remittance.
