61The Alexandria tavern kept by John Gadsby survives as the Gadsby Tavern Museum at 134 North Royal Street. On this date TJ visited Martha Washington at Mount Vernon. He was probably accompanied by New Hampshire senator John Langdon (1741-1819), a fellow boarder at Conrad and McMunn’s (TJ to MJE, 4 Jan. 1801).

62 William Tunnicliff operated the Washington City Hotel from 1799 until 1804. It was close to the Capitol on A Street near First Street, N.E. (Bryan, National Capital, i, 310, 519 description begins Wilhelmus B. Bryan, A History of the National Capital, New York, 1914-16, 2 vols. description ends ).

63 Nicolas Gouin Dufief (d. 1834), author of a revolutionary method of teaching languages, was a bookseller at 68 South Fourth Street, Philadelphia. The two books he sent TJ were probably J. P. Rabaut Saint Étienne, An Impartial History of the Late Revolution in France (Philadelphia, 1794), and F.J.L. Meyer, Fragments sur Paris (Hambourg, 1798) (Dufief to TJ, 23 Dec. 1800; TJ to Dufief, 9 Jan. 1801 [misdated 1800]; Sowerby, Nos. 229, 3895 description begins E. Millicent Sowerby, comp., Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, Washington, D.C., 1952-1959, 6 vols. description ends ). Subsequent purchases from Dufief and his successor, John Laval, are identified in Sowerby index description begins E. Millicent Sowerby, comp., Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, Washington, D.C., 1952-1959, 6 vols. description ends and in letters and accounts in DLC, CSmH, and MHi.

64TJ was very pleased with Wildair and used him as a saddle horse (Betts, Farm Book, p. 99-101 description begins Thomas Jefferson’s Farm Book, ed. Edwin M. Betts, Princeton, N.J., 1953 description ends ).

65Conrad & McMunn’s account, 1-31 Jan. 1801, for room and board at $48.50 per week, board of one horse at $4.00 per week, and daily consumption of porter and wine, is in MHi.

66TJ was elected President of the United States by the House of Representatives on the thirty-sixth ballot on 17 Feb. 1801 (see Malone, Jefferson, iii, 484-506 description begins Dumas Malone, Jefferson and His Time, Boston, 1948-1981, 6 vols. description ends ).

67Maryland congressman Samuel Smith (1752-1839), another boarder at Conrad & McMunn’s, declined TJ’s offer of the post of Secretary of the Navy, but served temporarily until June. For Smith’s role in the alleged “deal” connected with TJ’s election, see Malone, Jefferson, iv, 487-90 description begins Dumas Malone, Jefferson and His Time, Boston, 1948-1981, 6 vols. description ends .

68Chief Justice John Marshall had administered the oath as President to TJ in the Senate chamber on 4 Mch. 1801.

69One of TJ’s liveried servants, Edward Maher was a porter, with some additional household responsibilities (Étienne Lemaire to TJ, 10 May 1802; TJ to Lemaire, 14 May 1802). At the President’s House TJ assembled the largest household staff he had employed since his years in Paris. For eight years he had from ten to twelve servants, with Joseph Rapin, soon replaced by Étienne Lemaire, at their head as steward or butler. Those who served TJ throughout his presidency were: Joseph Dougherty, the coachman; Honoré Julien, the chef; and John Freeman, a footman. TJ also employed a valet, scullions and maids, and a servant for his private secretary; he later brought two of his Monticello slaves to Washington as apprentice cooks. Supplementing the MB entries are numerous other manuscript sources with details about TJ’s household at the President’s House. See, for example, Lemaire’s record of food purchases, Jan. 1806 to Mch. 1809 (CSmH); miscellaneous accounts and receipted bills, 1797-1821 (CSmH: HM 5721-2); and TJ’s scattered accounts with John Barnes, which itemize many purchases which do not appear in MB.

70Alexandria was the site of a military reception and a celebratory dinner for TJ on 14 Mch. (Malone, Jefferson, iv, 36 description begins Dumas Malone, Jefferson and His Time, Boston, 1948-1981, 6 vols. description ends ; Abel Janney to TJ, 14 Mch. 1801).

71 James Oldham (d. 1843), a house joiner from Philadelphia, had been recommended by Daniel Trump and Henry Ingle. He worked on the exterior joinery of Monticello until the fall of 1804, when he removed to Richmond and continued to make doors and sash for TJ. At some point he returned to Albemarle County, settling there and working on the construction of the University of Virginia (Trump to TJ, 12 Mch. 1801; Ingle to TJ, 20 Mch. 1801; Woods, Albemarle, p. 292 description begins Edgar Woods, Albemarle County in Virginia, 1901, repr. Bridgewater, Va., n.d. description ends ).

72 Joseph Dougherty, the Irish coachman, served TJ for eight years “rather as a riding agent than as the head of my stable” (TJ to Samuel H. Smith, 15 Aug. 1813; see also Smith, Washington Society, p. 313 description begins Margaret B. Smith, The First Forty Years of Washington Society, ed. Gaillard Hunt, New York, 1906 description ends ).

73 Herin’s (Herring’s) tavern was just east of present Brandy Station in Culpeper County and only a few hundred yards from John Strode’s house. Davy Bowles met TJ there with a carriage and horses from Monticello (Scheel, Map of Culpeper County description begins Historical map, Culpeper County, surveyed and drawn by Eugene M. Scheel, Washington, D.C., 1975 description ends ; TJ to MJR, 3 June 1802; TJ to TMR, 12 Mch. 1801).

74“Ruota Tenta” (Rota Tent) is a dark red sherry (TJ to Josef Yznardy, 24 Mch. 1801; Yznardy to TJ, 7 Apr. 1801).

75TJ’s niece Anna Scott Jefferson, daughter of RJ.

76 Edward Carrington (1749-1810) was supervisor of the federal revenue for the state of Virginia.

77Dr. William F. Bache (1773-1818), Benjamin Franklin’s grandson, had moved to Albemarle County in Apr. 1799, probably at TJ’s urging. He purchased 600 acres from James Key about five miles north of Monticello and there built Franklin. The Baches did not prosper in Virginia, however, and returned to Philadelphia in Dec. 1802. In Apr. 1804 TJ appointed him surveyor and inspector of the port of Philadelphia (TJ to MJE, 13 Apr. 1799; Woods, Albemarle, p. 62 description begins Edgar Woods, Albemarle County in Virginia, 1901, repr. Bridgewater, Va., n.d. description ends ; Jackson, Letters of Lewis and Clark, i, 134 description begins Donald Jackson, ed., Letters of the Lewis and Clark Expedition with Related Documents 1783-1854, 2d ed., Urbana, Ill., 1978, 2 vols. description ends ).

78For more information on these four carriage horses, see Betts, Farm Book, p. 101-2 description begins Thomas Jefferson’s Farm Book, ed. Edwin M. Betts, Princeton, N.J., 1953 description ends .

79TJ often breakfasted at Paul Verdier’s ordinary in Orange Courthouse after spending the night with James Madison at Montpelier (Orange County Court Order Book 1801-1803, p. 257, Courthouse, Orange, Va.)

80Correctly $1,723.315. TJ’s salary as President was $25,000 per year, payable monthly.

81 Honoré Julien was chef de cuisine at the President’s House until 1809.

82Shortly after receiving this “Brasil Quality” Madeira, TJ ordered two more pipes of it (Thomas Newton to TJ, 12 Mch., 14 Apr., 13 May 1801).

83John Barnes.

84This purchase of a year of the Baltimore American, bound, was actually a charity to Colin C. Wills, a destitute brushmaker (Wills to TJ, 20 Apr., 11 May 1801).

85 Richard Price (d. 1827) kept an ordinary in Milton in Albemarle County (Woods, Albemarle, p. 298; AlCCOB 1800-1801, p. 406 description begins Edgar Woods, Albemarle County in Virginia, 1901, repr. Bridgewater, Va., n.d. description ends ).

86Daniel Trump of Philadelphia had had made for Monticello six circular and two semicircular glazed mahogany windows (TJ to Trump, 21 Feb. 1801; Trump to TJ, 28 Apr. 1801).

87 Callender, who had been pardoned by TJ and released from jail in March, had become increasingly hostile toward his former hero because of bureaucratic delays in the remission of his $200 fine and his unsuccessful application for the Richmond postmastership. By the time he arrived in Washington in May his transformation into a Federalist and TJ’s implacable personal enemy was complete. Meriwether Lewis, who delivered TJ’s donation, encountered an abusive Callender, who said he accepted the $50 “not as a charity but a due, in fact as hush money” (TJ to James Monroe, 29 May 1801; Callender to TJ, 12 Apr. 1801; Callender to James Madison, 27 Apr. 1801, Madison Papers, DLC). And in due course, from the columns of the Richmond Recorder, Callender took his revenge on the President he considered he had helped raise to power, first by claiming he had been TJ’s hired pen and then, in the fall of 1802, launching his famous attacks on TJ’s moral character. For the final chapter in the life of this “poor creature, sensible, hypocondriac, drunken, pennyless and unprincipled,” as TJ described him over twenty years later, see Malone, Jefferson, iv, 207-20 description begins Dumas Malone, Jefferson and His Time, Boston, 1948-1981, 6 vols. description ends (TJ to Robert Richardson, 20 Apr. 1824).

88 John Freeman belonged to Dr. William Baker of Prince Georges County, Md. TJ hired him at $8 per month for several years. In 1804 Dr. Baker sold him to TJ for $400, on condition that he be freed after eleven years. TJ sold the remainder of his term of service to James Madison in 1809 (Baker power of attorney, 15 July 1802; Baker to John Barnes, 28 June 1804, both MHi; MB 19 Apr. 1809). Freeman’s particular responsibilty at the President’s House was the dining room and he usually accompanied TJ on his visits to Monticello (TJ to Joseph Dougherty, 11 Mch. 1802).

89This is Abraham Golden (Gaulding, Goulding), who until 1804 was personal servant to TJ’s private secretaries, first Meriwether Lewis and then Lewis Harvie. In February TJ had offered the post of private secretary to Meriwether Lewis (1774-1809), who was then a lieutenant in the First Infantry stationed at Detroit. Lewis had arrived in Washington in April and taken up residence in the President’s House. Until his departure for his transcontinental adventure in 1803, he occupied the position of “an Aid de camp, [rather] than a mere Secretary,” as TJ later described it, at an annual salary of $600, which TJ paid out of his own funds (Jackson, Letters of Lewis and Clark, ii, 736 description begins Donald Jackson, ed., Letters of the Lewis and Clark Expedition with Related Documents 1783-1854, 2d ed., Urbana, Ill., 1978, 2 vols. description ends ; TJ to Lewis, 23 Feb. 1801; TJ to William A. Burwell, 26 Mch. 1804).

90Author and publisher Richard Dinmore (1765-1811) directed the circulating library proposed by James Lyon at “the first door west of the President’s Square” (Bryan, National Capital, i, 435-6 description begins Wilhelmus B. Bryan, A History of the National Capital, New York, 1914-16, 2 vols. description ends ; Sowerby, No. 3312 description begins E. Millicent Sowerby, comp., Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, Washington, D.C., 1952-1959, 6 vols. description ends ).

91“Lady Washington’s” chapel, the creation of the eccentric Congregational clergyman David Austin, was dedicated 14 July in a room of the Great Hotel at the corner of Eighth and E streets, N.W. (Bryan, National Capital, i, 407-8 description begins Wilhelmus B. Bryan, A History of the National Capital, New York, 1914-16, 2 vols. description ends ).

92 Daniel Rapine and Michael and John Conrad had opened Washington’s first bookstore in the fall of 1800 at the corner of B and New Jersey streets, S.E. (Bryan, National Capital, i, 383-4 description begins Wilhelmus B. Bryan, A History of the National Capital, New York, 1914-16, 2 vols. description ends ).

93 Thomas Claxton, “Agent for furnishing the President’s House” under John Adams and TJ, made a number of purchases in Philadelphia for TJ’s private account, including lamps, candlesticks, stockings, and silver tea and coffee urns made by Anthony Simmons and Samuel Alexander (Claxton to TJ, 28 May 1801; Claxton invoice, 5 June 1801; Michael Roberts invoice, 10 June 1801; Jane Larimore invoice, 12 June 1801, MHi). At this time Simmons and Alexander also made for TJ a silver ewer copied from a model of the bronze askos TJ had seen at Nîmes in 1787. Called in TJ’s family “the duck” and used as a chocolate pot, this ewer is now at Monticello (TJ to Claxton, 2 June 1801; Joseph Coolidge to N. P. Trist, 5 Jan. 1827, DLC; Papers, xv, xxx-xxxii description begins Julian P. Boyd and others, eds., The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, Princeton, N.J., 1950- description ends ; MB 10 May 1787).

94TJ here began to acquire 1,162¼ acres of land belonging to the heirs of Bennett Henderson. The Henderson holdings, mostly pine barrens, adjoined TJ’s own Monticello-Tufton tract on the east and completely surrounded the town of Milton. The portion between the Rivanna River and Milton, then the head of navigation, may have been of particular interest to TJ, for it included the area’s tobacco inspection warehouses and some mill sites which, if built on, would furnish competition for TJ’s planned Shadwell manufacturing mill. As TJ wished to keep his name out of any connection with the purchase of property while he held public office, he commissioned Craven Peyton to purchase and manage the Henderson tract until he retired in 1809. It is not known if Peyton received any financial compensation for his agency other than the interest TJ paid him for his advances of purchase money; he was a faithful deputy but proved completely unequal to the task of navigating the sea of legal complexities presented by this case. Bennett Henderson had died intestate and his land was divided into over thirty parcels for his widow and ten children, several of them minors. Many of the deeds purchased by Peyton later proved worthless and, to consolidate his holdings, TJ found it necessary to purchase some parcels two and even three times over. By 1817, after spending almost $11,000 in purchase money and legal fees, he finally gained clear title to most of the tract he had set out to purchase sixteen years before. By this time TJ’s Shadwell mill had not lived up to his expectations and the once thriving commercial center at Milton had substantially declined as the Rivanna was made navigable above it. For further discussions of this land acquisition, which in light of TJ’s financial condition can only be considered an unfortunate undertaking, see Malone, Jefferson, vi, 505-7 description begins Dumas Malone, Jefferson and His Time, Boston, 1948-1981, 6 vols. description ends , and Merrill, Jefferson’s Nephews, p. 55-70 description begins Boynton Merrill, Jr., Jefferson’s Nephews: A Frontier Tragedy, Princeton, N.J., 1976 description ends . Most of the documents concerning the Henderson lands, including hundreds of pages of legal memoranda, are in ViU. Of particular importance in unraveling this complex matter are TJ to Peyton, 15 Jan., 8 Oct. 1801, 9 Jan. 1809; TJ to Joseph Hornsby, 21 Apr. 1813; Peyton’s deeds, 4 Oct. 1804, 4 Aug. 1811; plat of the land, Nov. 1801; TJ account with Peyton, 1801-1811, DLC: 34556-59. See also MB 23 Sep. 1795, 8 May, 10 Sep. 1804, 31 July 1812, 7 Feb., 20 July 1817.

95The Centre Market opened in Dec. 1801 on Pennsylvania Avenue at the site of the present National Archives between Seventh and Ninth streets. Market days were Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday (Bryan, National Capital, i, 419-20 description begins Wilhelmus B. Bryan, A History of the National Capital, New York, 1914-16, 2 vols. description ends ).

96Present Theodore Roosevelt Island, opposite Georgetown, was in TJ’s time called Mason’s or Analostan Island and owned by Georgetown merchant John Mason. It was well known for its gardens, on which David Hepburn had been employed from 1796 to 1802 (Mary E. Curry, “Theodore Roosevelt Island,” CHS Records, xlviii [1971], 14-33).

97The money for William F. Ast was the premium for insuring the buildings at Monticello (see MB 17 Aug. 1800).

98Correctly $32.125.

99 Hardin Davis was postmaster at Charlottesville at this time (Rawlings, Early Charlottesville, p. 31 description begins Mary Rawlings, ed., Early Charlottesville: Recollections of James Alexander 1828-1874, Charlottesville, Va., 1942 description ends ).

1Randolph Jefferson.

2TJ’s slave James Hubbard (b. 1783), son of Cate and James Hubbard (b. 1743), was probably going to Poplar Forest to visit his family. He was a nailer at Monticello from 1794 until 1811, when he ran away for a second time and was sold (MB 17 Dec. 1805, 5 Apr. 1812).

3Lawyer and legal writer William Waller Hening (1767-1828) lived in Charlottesville from 1793 to 1805 (Woods, Albemarle, p. 228-9 description begins Edgar Woods, Albemarle County in Virginia, 1901, repr. Bridgewater, Va., n.d. description ends ).

4These were two further pipes of Brazil quality Madeira (James Taylor to TJ, 4 June 1801).

5TJ paid for 120 bottles of sauternes and 220 bottles of claret for the President’s House and for a supply of sherry for Monticello (TJ to Henry Sheaff, 27 July 1801; TJ wine list, MB end 1803).

6Kindred brought brandy, porter, and the Windsor chairs paid for in October from Richmond to Milton (MB 13 Oct. 1801; George Jefferson receipt, 21 Aug. 1801, MHi).

7The stonemason Joseph Moran worked on the new nailery and the L-shaped wings of the Monticello house in 1801 and 1802.

8The bonds for the 1790 sale of TJ’s Willis Creek lands to William Ronald had been given to Richard Hanson as partial payment of TJ’s debt to Farell & Jones and remained unpaid after Ronald died intestate in 1793. TJ, as insurer of the bonds, was involved in the chancery suit brought against Ronald’s administrator William Bentley. He had received a favorable decision in 1797, but final settlement was not made until 1822 (Copy court decision TJ v. Bentley, 13 Mch. 1797, MHi; MB 5 Oct. 1790, 28 Mch. 1822).

9The chancery suit brought by Robert Gilliam, representing the estate of Bathurst Skelton, had arisen from arrangements between Skelton and John Wayles for the farming of Elk Island over thirty years previously. It was still unsettled by 1813 (William Short to TJ, c. 10 Mch. 1784; MB 19 Oct. 1809, 27 July 1813).

10TJ had been unsuccessful in an effort to have his former slave James Hemings come to Washington as his chef de cuisine. As this entry indicates, James did return briefly to TJ’s service at Monticello. He then went back to Baltimore, where he committed suicide sometime in October (TJ to William Evans, 31 Mch., 1 Nov. 1801; Evans to TJ, 5 Nov. 1801).

11 Martha Suddarth, the sister of General Thomas Sumter, was highly regarded by TJ as a nurse and midwife (TJ to MJE, 26 Oct. 1801; Woods, Albemarle, p. 323 description begins Edgar Woods, Albemarle County in Virginia, 1901, repr. Bridgewater, Va., n.d. description ends ). On this date at Monticello TJ’s grandson Francis Eppes (1801-1881) was born.

George Green Shackelford, Princeton, N.J., 1965 description ends .

12These 66⅔ acres were located on the north side of the Hardware River about six miles north of Scottsville, probably in the vicinity of the abandoned quarry on the present Mount Pleasant farm. PJ had bequeathed this one-sixth part of a 400-acre tract to RJ, who conveyed it to TJ by a deed, dated 7 Apr. 1796 (LPB, xxvii, 436 description begins Land Patent Books. Vi description ends ; AlCWB, ii, 32 description begins Albemarle County Will Books, Albemarle County Courthouse, Charlottesville, Va. description ends ; AlCDB, i, 64, xli, 505 description begins Albemarle County Deed Books, Albemarle County Courthouse, Charlottesville, Va. description ends ).

13The Philadelphia-born blacksmith William Stewart lived and worked at Monticello from 1801 to 1807, when he was dismissed for his addiction to drink. Decribed by TJ as “the best workman in America, but the most eccentric one,” Stewart was in charge of the Monticello blacksmith shop, instructed some of TJ’s slaves in his trade, and made much of the intricate ironwork used in the construction of the house (TJ to George Jefferson, 3 Dec. 1801; James Traquair to TJ, 30 May 1801; TJ to Edmund Bacon, 24 Nov. 1807; Bear, Jefferson at Monticello, p. 69-70, 102 description begins Jefferson at Monticello, ed. James A. Bear, Jr., Charlottesville, Va., 1967 description ends ). Stewart’s wife Mary is buried in the Monticello graveyard (Monticello Association Papers, p. 260 description begins Collected Papers to Commemorate Fifty Years of the Monticello Association of Descendants of Thomas Jefferson, ed. George Green Shackelford, Princeton, N.J., 1965 description ends ).

14TJ and David Ross had been unable to agree on the state of their complex accounts, which included the sum TJ owed Ross at the settlement in 1783 and Ross’ subsequent purchases of Elk Hill tobacco in the 1780s. According to a final settlement reached by arbitration in Jan. 1802, TJ had to spend almost £300 to buy nearly 20,000 pounds of tobacco to pay off this old debt (MB 24 Sep. 1783; TJ to Ross, 25 Oct. 1790; TJ to Francis Eppes, 10 Oct. 1790; TJ to James Currie, 19 Oct. 1801, 14 Jan. 1802; TJ to George Jefferson, 19 Oct. 1801).

15This was a midwife fee for Sally Hemings, whose daughter Harriet was born in May 1801. Harriet ran away from Monticello in 1822.

16 Martin Wanscher, a plasterer, worked on the Monticello house from 1801 to 1804.

17 George Newman was licensed to keep an ordinary in Centreville for the years 1800 and 1801 (Fairfax County Personal Property Tax List, 1800, 1801, Vi).

18 Étienne Lemaire (d. 1817), formerly in the service of William Bingham in Philadelphia, was hired to replace Joseph Rapin as maître d’hôtel in the President’s House (Bingham to TJ, 25 July 1801; TJ to Philippe Le Tombe, 29 July 1801). TJ’s Monticello overseer described Lemaire as “a very smart man, . . . well educated, and as much of a gentleman in his appearance as any man.” TJ’s granddaughter recalled him as “a portly well-mannered frenchman . . . of whose honesty his master had a higher opinion than the world at large, and who I fancy made a small fortune in his employ. But he was a civil and a useful man and merited reward” (Bear, Jefferson at Monticello, p. 105 description begins Jefferson at Monticello, ed. James A. Bear, Jr., Charlottesville, Va., 1967 description ends ; Ellen W. Coolidge Letterbook, p. 48, ViU). After TJ’s retirement Lemaire returned to Philadelphia and in 1817, deranged by financial reverses, drowned himself (Honoré Julien to TJ, 7 Nov. 1817).

19 John Ott was a “Druggist, Chemist and Apothecary” in Georgetown (Washington Federalist, 8, 28 Dec. 1801).

20These items from Tobias Lear in Saint-Domingue are itemized in Lear to TJ, 25 July 1801. George Gilpin was harbormaster of the port of Alexandria (Bryan, National Capital, i, 512, 514 description begins Wilhelmus B. Bryan, A History of the National Capital, New York, 1914-16, 2 vols. description ends ).

21 Pontius D. Stelle, the most prominent of the early Washington hotelkeepers, kept hotels in several different locations near the Capitol from 1800 until 1804, when he bought William Tunnicliff’s hotel on A Street. From 1805 to 1809 Stelle’s hotel was in Carroll Row on First Street, between East Capitol and A streets, S. E. (Bryan, National Capital, i, 343-4 description begins Wilhelmus B. Bryan, A History of the National Capital, New York, 1914-16, 2 vols. description ends ; Bryan, “Hotels,” p. 86-8, 91-3).

22The scale of TJ’s hospitality as President can be assessed from his computation of the average per person cost of a dinner. He divided the week’s provisions expenses by the number of persons who took the main meal at the President’s House, presumably including himself and his secretary when they dined at home. A TJ list, 5 Nov. 1804-6 Mch. 1809, gives the names of his dinner guests for that period and reveals the frequency and size of his dinners, generally three times a week with about a dozen guests (MHi).

23The composition ornament maker George Andrews had recently removed from Baltimore to a store on the corner of Ninth and E Streets, Washington, where he sold “all kinds of Ornaments for Chimney pieces, Door Caps, Frontispieces, Metal Sashes, &c.” (Washington National Intelligencer, 8 May 1801). This first purchase from Andrews, consisting of ox skulls and roses, was for the entablature of the Monticello dining room then being prepared by James Dinsmore.

24These black and gold Windsor armchairs for Monticello were purchased by Claxton from Adam Snyder of Philadelphia (Snyder invoice, 31 July 1801, MHi).

25TJ’s slave Ursula (b. 1787), daughter of Bagwell and Minerva, was apparently a pastry cook at the President’s House (TJ to MJR, 18 June 1802). While in Washington she gave birth to a child which probably did not survive infancy (MB 22 Mch. 1802). She and Wormley later had ten children.

26TJ paid John March, a bookbinder, bookseller, and stationer on M Street in Georgetown, for binding the Encyclopédie méthodique, nineteen volumes of newspapers, seventeen volumes of music books, and a number of other titles (Bryan, National Capital, i, 336 description begins Wilhelmus B. Bryan, A History of the National Capital, New York, 1914-16, 2 vols. description ends ; March receipted invoice, 7 Nov. 1801, CSmH). Books subsequently bound for TJ can be identified from the many March invoices which survive in MHi and CSmH.

27TJ paid freight costs of some pecan and orange trees from Daniel Clark, Jr., in New Orleans and of two Indian busts from Morgan Brown of Palmyra, Tenn. (Brown to TJ, 1 Oct. 1799; TJ to Brown, 16 Jan. 1800; TJ to Clark, 16 Jan. 1800; Clark to TJ, 20 July 1801; Thomas Newton to TJ, 16 Oct. 1801). TJ listed the Indian carvings, which are unlocated, in his Catalogue of Paintings: “12. & 15. two busts of Indian figures, male & female, by Indians, in hard stone. 18. I. high. They were dug up at a place called Palmyra, on the Tennissee.”

28Since both “servants” and “July” totals are ten cents short, TJ probably made a transcription error in the July servants expenses. This indicates that he completed his computations before entering this chart in MB.

29This is probably another transcription error for $198.57, as the monthly average for total household expenses is correct.

30 William Brent (1774-1848), brother of Mayor Robert Brent and from 1805 clerk of the circuit court of the District of Columbia, was one of the managers of the Washington Dancing Assemblies, which were held at Stelle’s hotel (Norfleet, Saint-Mémin, p. 145-6 description begins Fillmore Norfleet, Saint-Mémin in Virginia: Portraits and Biographies, Richmond, Va., 1942 description ends ; Washington National Intelligencer, 5 Dec. 1800, 29 Dec. 1802; Bryan, National Capital, i, 555 description begins Wilhelmus B. Bryan, A History of the National Capital, New York, 1914-16, 2 vols. description ends ). In Washington TJ continued his Philadelphia practice of subscribing to but not attending the balls.

31 Samuel Smith had paid for TJ the costs of freight and duties of a tierce of Lágrima, a sweet dark Málaga wine, vintage 1755, which had arrived in Baltimore (Robert Oliver invoice, 25 Nov. 1801, CSmH; TJ wine list, MB end 1803).

32Correctly $16.06.
