From George Jefferson
Richmond 1st Mar: 1811
Lest your failing to forward a note in time to renew yours in the bank should occasion you some uneasiness, I have concluded to inform you that it has not been attended with the smallest inconvenience: the situation of G & J’s account in the bank at this time being such, as to enable them to raise the money by putting in their own note.
Had it been at all important, I should probably have forwarded a copy of my last letter to Poplar Forest, to guard against your detention by bad weather; which I have no doubt was the cause of my not hearing from you.

Jefferson’s last letter, dated Richmond, 15 Feb. 1811, stated only that he enclosed “a note for your signature, which will be wanted here by the last of the month” (RC in MHi; at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esqr”; endorsed by TJ as received 2 Mar. 1811 and so recorded in SJL; enclosure not found).
