From Thomas Jefferson to John Beckley, 17 April 1798

To John Beckley

Philadelphia Apr. 17. 1798.

Dear Sir

If Colo. Trigg will be so good as to furnish you the two hundred & forty dollars, I will undertake that it shall be repaid to him at Lynchburg the first week of July in such way as shall be satisfactory to him; on which subject I will confer with him for explanation, and conform myself to his wish. I will call on him the first moment in my power, or be glad to see him at my lodgings if he should have a moment to spare before I have. I am with esteem Dear Sir

Your friend & servt
