Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Eston Randolph, 18 June 1816

To Thomas Eston Randolph

Monticello June 18. 16.

Dear Sir

I have subjoined to the lease an acknolegement that the rent of the next year is payable in flour as you desired. I wish I could, even by possibility postpone the October payment to January. but I shall not have one Dollar through the remainder of this year but the rent of the mill, having exhausted all other funds, even of credit, in the purchase of corn, and oats, by the total failure of my overseers both here & in Bedford the last year, and I have more still to buy. I hope I shall not live to see such another year. but I trust you will find no difficulty in delivering the 1st quarter’s rent at the mill, and I will see to the getting it down.

The balance of rent to Apr. 1. since you rendered the account is by subsequent credits reduced to 63.54 D to wit

 D
Balance as stated in your account 299.16½
By  corn from Carlton on acct of T M Randolph 122.50
my order in favor of Fagg  53.12½
cash recd from Th: J. Randolph on your account   60.
  balance remaining due  63.54 299.16½

Of that which will be due July 1st Th: J. Randolph advanced me 240.D. on your account, for which I gave him an order on you payable Sep. 1. so that there will be due for this quarter but 80.D. more.   ever & affectionately your’s

Th: Jefferson

P.S. I set out for Bedford on Saturday next.
