Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Garland, 15 November 1820

To Samuel Garland

Pop. For. Nov. 15. 20.


I had expected that on my arrival here I should be able to give you an order on Richmond for 800.D. but I find that my funds there at present will meet 600.D. only, for which sum I now inclose you an order on Capt. B. Peyton: and I will give a further order for 200. Dollars before I leave this place, say in December. I salute you with great esteem & respect.

Th: Jefferson

PoC (MHi); at foot of text: “Mr Saml Garland”; endorsed by TJ; with apparently unrelated “$36.60” in an unidentified hand on verso. Enclosure not found.
