Thomas Jefferson to William Wardlaw, 30 July 1815

To William Wardlaw

Monticello July 30. 15.

Dear Sir

Your favor of the 22d is recieved and gave me the first information that mr Michie was in this county. I had yesterday a Notice duly served, so that I have only now to request the further trouble of countermanding that in the hands of the town serjeant; which being for different days from those now served, would produce mischief & confusion. indeed I would wish him to put them under cover to me by mail.

Mr Norris has been in our neighborhood & has left it. I did not see or hear from him while here; but I sent to the stage offices & post offices of Milton & Charlottesville & to mr Norris’s lodgings in the latter place, and could learn nothing of the Lemon-acid which your letter expected would come under his charge. I mention this as he may perhaps have left it in the Stage office in Richmond. I salute you with friendship and respect

Th: Jefferson
