Thomas Jefferson Papers

Arthur S. Brockenbrough to Thomas Jefferson, 19 June 1820

From Arthur S. Brockenbrough

June 19th 1820

Respected Sir,

You are under a mistake as to any remittance being made to Mr Vaughan in September last for the two Mr Raggis, our funds were at so low a state at that time the remittance of 300 D. could not be made, no remittance was made untill Feb: & that for $400—by yourself. I have never had any correspondence with Mr Vaughan on the subject, the $400 in Feb: as I understand was to bring in the wives of the two Mr Raggis—I am Sir

your Obt sevt

A. S. Brockenbrough

RC (DLC); addressed: “Thomas Jefferson Esqr Monticello”; with apparently unrelated calculation by TJ on verso; endorsed by TJ: “Brockenbrough A. S.”
