Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to John Vaughan, 7 December 1818

To John Vaughan

Monticello Dec. 7. 18.

Dear Sir

I recieved yesterday from mr Appleton of Leghorn a letter of Aug. 26. in which he says ‘your letter of Apr. 4. was accompanied by one from mr John Vaughan, mentioning that he then inclosed a bill of exchange by S. Girard on Lafitte & co. Paris for francs 2415. but no such bill was found therein by me.’ he has probably written the same to you, and I have no doubt the inadvertence has been corrected, and I note it only to make certainty doubly certain. ever faithfully & affectionately


Th: Jefferson
