To Charles Massie
Monticello Dec. 18. 15.
I had left home when your answer to my letter came and altho mr Bacon forwarded it, I have never got it. he says however that he engaged what cyder you had left and that you would either deliver it at your own house or at Charlottesville. the latter will suit me best and on notice of it’s being there I can send for it immediately or it may be delivered there to mr James Leitch for me whom I will desire to pay you the cost of it. Accept my best wishes and respects
