Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to David Higginbotham, 8 August 1813

To David Higginbotham

Aug. 8. 13.

Th:J. to mr Higgenbothem

Mr Gamble writes to me to know if I have any evidence that there is a Common on the N.W. side of the lot I sold you in Richmd & which he says he has bought. I had no information of that but from James Buchanan, and I presume I gave you his letters & plat Colo Byrd’s letter, & the rough copy of Carter’s deed to me.

did you give these to mr Gamble? if not, be so good as to send them to me, & I will forward them to him retaining copies.

RC (ViU: TJP); dateline at foot of text; addressed: “Mr Higgenbotham.” Not recorded in SJL.

A missing letter of 8 Aug. 1813 from Higginbotham to TJ is recorded in SJL as received the same day.
