From George Jefferson

Richmond 8th. Febr. 1802

Dear Sir,

I received two or three weeks ago of Mr. Creed Taylor 60$. on account of Littlebury Mosby’s bond to Mr. Short. I should before now have given you this information, but Mr. T. informed me that he should make a further payment in the course of a few days—he however left Town (having been on the assembly) without again calling.

I inclose you under two seperate covers the papers left with me by Doctor Currie. by tomorrows post I will send you the bonds lodged here by Mr. Hanson.

I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt.

Geo. Jefferson
