Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to J. A. Gautier, 19 May 1786

To J. A. Gautier

Paris May 19. 1786.


Of the 2044livre tournois 16s. 2d. belonging to Mr. Wuibert the son according to the papers which I had the honour of putting into your hands the other day, his father lays claim to 600livre tournois. Having no authority to decide on the justice of this claim, I have promised him that I will leave 600livre tournois in the hands of Mr. Grand, subject to the future orders of the son, to whom I shall write on the occasion. I will therefore thank you for bills for the balance, which I will remit for his immediate relief, and I will desire him to draw on Mr. Grand for the 600livre tournois to be paid to such person as he shall think proper. I am with very great esteem Sir your most obedient and most humble servt.,

Th: Jefferson
