From John G. Robert (for Patrick Gibson)

Richmd Apr 17h 1818

Sir

I have sent by Jas Johnsons boat to you Eleven cases wine & one of macaroni in good order—You will pay toll for passing the locks at Columbia—I wod wish Mr T. E. Randolph to be more explicit hereafter in sending your flour down as a great deal of trouble has been unnecessarily incurred by the boatman Eye’s not knowing where to deliver it—it has in consequence remained sometime in a hard rain & I fear is injured, it was put out at the lower end of the Basin Bank for Capn Peyton (the boatman Supposed it was for him) instead of being placed at my Lumber House

Yrs
P. Gibson
⅌ J G Robert

RC (MHi); in the hand of a representative of Gibson & Jefferson; addressed: “Thos Jefferson Esqr Monticello ⅌ Mr Johnson.”
