Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to John Bolling, 6 March 1790

To John Bolling

Richmond Mar 6. 1790.

Dear Sir

I intended to have the happiness of seeing you and my sister, and sat out for that purpose the day before yesterday, but the day was so bitter cold that I was obliged to return back after getting to Manchester. I was anxious to settle the inclosed account with you, because that is all which is wanting to close the two administrations of my sisters estates. As I set out for New York the day after tomorrow, and shall remain there, I must get you to inform me by letter whether the account be right, and if not right, to correct it. A settlement is all I wish, as the balance may wait your convenience. You will receive demands from the other distributees. Those from Mr. Marks and my brother are I believe much needed. There is an execution out against the latter. Present my best affections to my sister & be assured of the esteem of Dr. Sir Your sincere friend & servt.,

Th: Jefferson

P.S. My address will be To Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of state, New York. Lodge your letter in the Richmond post office and it will come safe.

PrC (MHi). Enclosure not found, but see note to Randolph Jefferson, 28 Feb. 1790.
