From Thomas Jefferson to Willink, Van Staphorst & Hubbard, 12 June 1792

To Willink, Van Staphorst & Hubbard

Philadelphia June 12th. 1792.


In my letter of Jan. 23. I informed you that Mr. Thomas Pinckney, appointed our Minister Plenipotentiary to the Court of London would draw on you from time to time for his allowance, and in that of May 22. I advised you of his draught on you in favor of Francis and John West, for thirteen hundred Florins.

The present serves to advise you that he has this day drawn on you in favor of John Dobson of London, merchant for Two thousand five hundred and thirty five Gilders, which be pleased to honor and charge as paid to him on the public account of the Secretary of State. Presuming that these two draughts will have sufficiently acquainted you with his Signature, I shall no more accompany his bills with my own letter of advice. I am, Gentlemen, Your most obedient humble servant:

PrC (DLC); in the hand of George Taylor, Jr.; unsigned; at foot of text: “Messrs. Wilhem & Jan Willink Nichs. & Jacob Van Staphorst & Hubbard—Bankers. Amsterdam.” FC (Lb in DNA: RG 59, DCI). Enclosed in TJ to John Dobson, 12 June 1792.

The second letter cited by TJ was actually dated 23 May 1792.
