George Jefferson to Thomas Jefferson, 19 June 1809

From George Jefferson

Richmond 19th June 1809

Dear Sir

If you go to Bedford as soon as you contemplate, you will be surprised I expect at not finding the 3 dozen chairs there, which you ordered several months ago.—The first person who engaged to make them disappointed us altogether, & the next one has been a long time about them.—They are however at last ready, and shall be forwarded by the first safe boat, to the care of Saml J. Harrison

I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt

Geo. Jefferson
