George Jefferson to Thomas Jefferson, 7 November 1811

From George Jefferson

Richmond 7th Novr 1811.

My dear Sir

I have duly received your much esteemed favor of the 4th, for which, if any words were adequate, I would thank you:—From your experience, and from every other consideration which ought to govern1 me, I should have taken the liberty of asking the favor of your advice; but feared I had already taken up too much of your time: upon this subject therefore, I will occupy no more.

I have remitted Mr Hooe 131$, and now inclose you $:350—, agreeably to your direction.

I have bought two of Peacock’s ploughs for you, one of the smallest size, & one of the largest now here.—he makes some larger, but has sent only a very few of them to this place, most people being of opinion that they are too large for two horses.

The boxes of books from Washington (7) are here.

I am my dear Sir Your Mt humble servt

Geo. Jefferson
