Dear Sir

Lest you might be gone to Richmond, as mentioned in your letter of the 2d. instant, I have thought it best to send the balance you desired, to mr George Jefferson of that place; and have accordingly inclosed 140. D. this day in a letter addressed to you, sealed, and have desired him to deliver it to yourself or to your written order; so that you can apply to him on your reciept of this.   in that letter I have mentioned the necessity of postponing to the next year any other paiments which may be hereafter agreed on.   accept assurances of my friendly attachment.

Th: Jefferson

RC (CtY); addressed: “Mr. Craven Peyton near Milton”; franked and postmarked. PrC (ViU); endorsed by TJ in ink on verso.

YOUR LETTER OF THE 2D. INSTANT: probably Peyton to TJ, 30 May, which TJ received on 2 June.
