Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to George Divers, 14 September 1811

To George Divers

Monticello Sep. 14. 11.

Dear Sir

The advance of the season makes me uneasy about your timothy seed. on the 8th of Aug. I inclosed a 10.D. bill t[o] Judge Stewart requesting him to procure the amount of it in timothy seed, fresh, & forward it to mr Leitch’s in Charlottesville. as I have not heard from him I have this day written to him by post. when it arrives at mr Leitch’s, call for it without waiting for communication with me on the subject, lest it should occasion a delay which the season forbids.

Your’s affectionately

Th: Jefferson
