To George Jefferson
Monticello May  1802.
I arrived here the day before yesterday on a visit of one fortnight [only and am] in hourly hope of seeing my groceries [arrive] from mr Barnes as well as a quarter cask of wine from Robertson [and Brown] of Norfolk. I have never heard yet from Bedford [whether my tobacco is] down or not. on my departure from Washington I [desired] mr Barnes to remit you 300. dollars on my account. accept assurances of my affectionate esteem.
