Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to Patrick Gibson, 27 March 1821

To Patrick Gibson

Monticello Mar. 27. 21.

Dear Sir

Not knowing the exact date of my note in the bank of Virginia I inclose a blank supposing the time of renewal must be at hand. supposing too the curtail to be of 80.D. the sum must be somewhere between 1000. and 1100.D. I have therefore left the odd numbers blank. [on] the 4th of Feb. mr Colclaser informs me he sent you a quarter’s rent of 50. Barrels of flour. another quarter is due within 3. or 4. days which I shall direct him to forward to you. the accident to the mill which I mentioned in my last having suspended her grinding more than a month has [o]ccasioned such a scramble among the customers to get their flour delivered, as to render it somewhat unpunctual in it’s deliveries. I salute you with constant friendship and respect

Th: Jefferson

PoC (DLC); on verso of a reused address cover from Frederick A. Mayo to TJ; two words faint; at foot of text: “Mr Gibson”; endorsed by TJ. Enclosure not found.
