Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to Patrick Gibson, 11 November 1819

To Patrick Gibson

Monticello Nov. 11. 19.

Dear Sir

The period for the renewal of my notes in the banks of Virginia & of the US. being now approaching, I inclose them to you for that purpose. I have not yet heard whether the boats which left Milton on the 10th of October have got to Richmond yet. they are not returned here, nor is there water enough in the river to float an empty boat. The Collector of Norfolk writes me that he has forwarded to you for me a case of wine, which be pleased to send on by either Johnson’s or Gilmer’s boats whichever first offers   Your’s affectionately

Th: Jefferson

PoC (MHi); on verso of portion of reused address cover to TJ; at foot of text: “Mr Gibson”; endorsed by TJ. Enclosures not found.

The collector of norfolk was Charles K. Mallory.
