Thomas Jefferson to Patrick Gibson, 25 October 1814

To Patrick Gibson

Monticello Oct. 25. 14.

Dear Sir

Your’s of Sep. 30. has been recieved, informing me of the enlargement of my note in the bank. three days before that date I had drawn on you in favor of Clifton Harris sheriff of Albemarle for 230.32 D the amount of my taxes Etc in this county, and on the 11th inst. I drew in favor of the same person for 150.D. for so much cash recieved here in exchange. Genl Cocke will also present you a draught for 167.D. of the 23d inst. I have been expecting the Sheriff of Bedford would have notified to me the amount of my taxes in that county, but I have not heard from him. I shall set out in a few days for that county and shall probably have to draw from thence for his demand & perhaps others. we are grinding our wheat altho’ under a poor prospect as to price. Accept the assurance of my great esteem & respect.
