Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from George Jefferson, 2 February 1802

From George Jefferson

Richmond 2d. Febr. 1802

Dear Sir,

I paid Doctor Currie agreeably to your direction 50$:—which however, he returned some days ago, as he said the referees for whom it was intended, refused to receive any compensation: he has lodged with me some papers respecting that business, of which I suppose he has informed you.

I paid Mr. Eppes some weeks ago on your account £16.4. with which I imagine he has acquainted you.

I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt.

Geo. Jefferson

At the sale of his tobacco crop to McMurdo & Fisher in January 1801, TJ noted that 902 pounds of tobacco belonged to John Wayles Eppes, and he deducted £16.4.9 from the total sale price of £813.19.9 as Eppes’s share of the payment (MB description begins James A.
