Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to the Commissioners of the Treasury, 1 February 1787

To the Commissioners of the Treasury

Paris Feb. 1, 1787.


Colo. Franks, who acted as Secretary to Mr. Barclay on his mission to Marocco, having occasion for money for his journey, I furnished him with fifty pounds sterling by draught on the fund appropriated to those purposes, for which I now inclose you his receipt. Mr. Barclay settled his account to the time of his being at Madrid on his return, of which, I presume, one or both those gentlemen will render you account.

I have the honour to be with sentiments of the most perfect esteem & respect Gentlemen your most obedient & most humble servant,

Th: Jefferson
