From George Jefferson
Richmond 21st. April 1800
I was by last post favor’d with yours of the 15th. inclosing
|Your order on James Brown for the bala. due by him to Wm. Short, supposed to be, exclusive of Intert. from 3d. Octr. ’93.||£81–13–11|
|Richard Randolph’s note to W. S. on Intert. from 23d. Decr. ’89 for||62–10—|
|Littlebury Mosby’s note to do. on Int. from 1st. Janr. ’88 with a memo. at foot of £18–19–1 Intert. having been paid 5th. May ’90||Military Certfs.
|John Mayo’s note to do. on Intert. from the 1st. Decr. ’84, with a credit thereon of £37–15–8 the 9th. Apl. 1791.||100—|
I have to day called at Mr. Browns but was informed he would be engaged at Court all day. I suppose I shall get his balance in a few days.
Richard Randolph is dead & it is thought that his estate will not be sufficient to pay his debts; the sheriff of James City has administered on his estate & advertised for all creditors to carry in their accounts by Monday last—I suppose however that longer time will be allowed.
I shall send this bond to Mr. Littleton W. Tazewell by to nights post.
I will endeavour to collect from Mayo & from Mosby, but from what I have heard of them am inclined to think that suits will have to be commenced against them.
I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt.
