From George Jefferson
Richmond 11th. Augt. 1802
I yesterday sent you by direction of Messrs. Watson & Higganbotham 20 Bushels of Coal—I likewise forwarded by R. Mooney 2 dozn. syrup of punch. there is no Rhode Island lime to be had here. there is some from Philadelphia, which the owners say is good. I cannot yet procure any such linen as you require.
Mr. Short is gone to Washington, of which I suppose you will have heard by the Governor.
I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt.
