Thomas Jefferson to James Eastburn & Company, 25 May 1819

To James Eastburn & Company

Monticello May 25. 19.

Messrs Eastburn & co.

I have just recieved your favor of the 12th informing me that bills of the Richmond banks will always answer for remittances, which indeed will always be a great facility, it being a rare thing in our inland situation to see a bill of the US. bank. I therefore now inclose you a 5.D. note of the Virga bank of Richmond to make up the amount of the books forwarded and salute you with respect

Th: Jefferson

PoC (MHi); on verso of reused address cover of Joseph Jones to TJ, 18 Jan. 1819; endorsed by TJ.
