MS (MHi); entirely in TJ’s hand; written on a small scrap, part of a reused address cover to TJ; endorsed by TJ: “Peyton Craven.”

reuben grady paid TJ for the right to cut firewood at Milton and occasionally sold him charcoal (MB description begins James A. Bear Jr. and Lucia C. Stanton, eds., Jefferson’s Memorandum Books: Accounts, with Legal Records and Miscellany, 1767–1826, 1997, The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, Second Series description ends , 2:1250, 1286, 1287, 1296).

TJ described this transaction thus a day earlier: “Charge Craven Peyton on acct. of Reuben Grady £19–10 settled with him for fire & coal wood” (MB description begins James A. Bear Jr. and Lucia C. Stanton, eds., Jefferson’s Memorandum Books: Accounts, with Legal Records and Miscellany, 1767–1826, 1997, The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, Second Series description ends , 2:1265).
