Thomas Jefferson to John Wayles Eppes, 26 January 1810

To John Wayles Eppes

Monticello Jan. 26. 10

Dear Sir

Your letter of the 21st brought to my mind Colo Bentley’s business. I immediately examined the papers, & calculated the balance due, a small one, and wrote to mr James Pleasants a statement of the account, authorising him on paiment of the balance to Gibson & Jefferson in Richmond, to convey the lands to Colo Bentley discharged of all further claims on my part.

Francis is well as we are all, but locked up in snow & ice. Affectionately Your’s

Th: Jefferson
