Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Craven Peyton, 24 August 1803

To Craven Peyton

Monticello Aug. 24. 03.

Dear Sir

Your servant finds me just mounting my horse on a call to mr Lilly’s. I have only time therefore to say I must leave the renting &c to yourself entirely, only guarding against repetitions of corn planting so as to injure the fields. I am sorry I have not 10. D. by me. I depend on exchanges with the sheriffs, who collect little. Accept my best wishes.

Th: Jefferson

RC (MA). Not recorded in SJL.
