RC (ViU: TJP-ER); at head of text: “Thomas Jefferson Esqre”; endorsed by TJ as a letter from Gibson & Jefferson received 17 Aug. 1813 and so recorded in SJL. Enclosure not found.

SJL records a missing letter from TJ to Gibson of 18 Aug. 1813, which evidently covered a signed “note for 1500.D. to Patr. Gibson for the bank, date blank” (MB description begins James A. Bear Jr. and Lucia C. Stanton, eds., Jefferson’s Memorandum Books: Accounts, with Legal Records and Miscellany, 1767–1826, 1997, The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, Second Series description ends , 2:1292).
