To Craven Peyton
Monticello Aug. 20. 09.
The title purchased from Henderson’s representatives is so extremely complicated as to render it indispensable to state in the deed all the several conveyances of all the parties; otherwise in case of question at any future time it might be lost for want of knowing it. I have endeavored to do this in the inclosed deed, and in order that you may have time, I send it to you To-day, & pray you to examine well the statement of title & be ready to enable me to correct it if there be any error; as also to fill up all the blanks.
