Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to Ezra Sargeant, 21 June 1812

To Ezra Sargeant

Monticello June 21. 12.


In consequence of a letter from mr Gilley on your behalf informing me there was a balance of 21. D 50 still due to you for the printing done for me, I desired Messrs Gibson & Jefferson, on the 17 th inst. to remit you that sum, which I have no doubt you will recieve by the time this gets to hand. mr Gilley’s letter came to this place while I was absent on a journey of several weeks which occasioned the delay of the remittance. Accept the assurance of my respects.

Th: Jefferson

PoC (MHi); at foot of text: “Mr Ezra Sargeant”; endorsed by TJ.

William B. Gilley’s letter of 28 Apr. 1812, not found, is recorded in SJL as received from New York on 22 May 1812.
