Monticell[o] Mar. 13. 18:

Dear Sir

Mine of Feb. 18. informed you I had desired mr Gibson to remit you 100.D. on account which he writes me he has done. the object of the present is to let you know I shall set out for Bedford the 10th of April & be back by the 10th of May which may govern you in sending the proof sheets of Tracy. I shall hope on my return to find my Tacitus here. [I s]alute you with my best wishes.

Th: Jefferson
