Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to James Currie, 2 December 1801

To James Currie

Washington Dec. 2. 1801.

Dear Sir

In my last notes in the case between mr Ross & myself, I mentioned that I would apply to messrs. Lewis & Eppes for information of the credit given at a sale in Elk island, on which the rate of converting money into tobacco in a particular instance depended. I have received their answers, neither of them recollecting what credit was given on particular bonds: they suppose also that mr Ross, or perhaps mr Wickam may be in possession of the particular bonds in question which would shew for themselves. having no additional evidence therefore on this point, I would wish the final decision of the arbitration not to be delayed longer in expectation of it   Accept assurances of my friendly esteem & respect

Th: Jefferson
