Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to Patrick Gibson, 18 May 1821

To Patrick Gibson

Monticello May 18. 21.

Dear Sir

According to the request of your letter of Apr. 30. I have this day inclosed to Capt Peyton my note to him for 1125.D. payable in the bank of Virginia to replace that for the same sum which you have hitherto been so kind as to endorse for me. the last account I have recieved from you was of Sep. 12. balance against me 262.72 which I hope has been paid up by the flour since consigned to you. I shall be glad however to recieve my account with you down to the present day. I learn with great concern that at the [date?] of your last letter you were seriously indisposed, and ver[y] [s]in[c]erely hope this may find you restored. I salute y[ou with cons]tant friendship and respect.

Th: J[ef]ferson
