Thomas Jefferson to Joel Yancey, 21 July 1815

To Joel Yancey

Monticello July 21. 15.

Dear Sir

In my letter of the 18th I omitted a material article, which was to give the inclosed bill to mr Atkinson & get him to saw it immediately so as to have it ready on the arrival of the carpenters. there are, I imagine, belted poplars in the cleared grounds sufficient to furnish the stocks, for I do not suppose they will take more than 3. or 4. trees. he will need help in pitting, but the shorter he makes the stocks the less help he will need.—in your provision of bread about 3. or 4. barrels must be allowed for the carpenters. Accept the assurances of my esteem & respect

Th: Jefferson

PoC (MHi); on verso of reused address cover to TJ; adjacent to signature: “Mr Yancey”; with PoC of enclosure subjoined; endorsed by TJ. Enclosure: TJ to Michael Atkinson, [ca. 21 July 1815].

Yancey’s 29 July 1815 reply to TJ, not found, is recorded in SJL as received 11 Aug. 1815 from Bedford.
