To Bernard Peyton

Monticello May 25. 21.

Dear Sir

I inclose you 350.D. of which I pray you to remit 300.D. to John Vaughan of Philadelphia sending with it at the same time the letter I inclosed to you for him in mine of April 19. with the remainder be pleased to send me 3. boxes of tin, to be bought from Daniel W. & C. Warwick, exactly of the quality of what they furnish to mr Brockenbrough for covering the houses at the University. he pays them 13.D. a box. this may come by water or by waggons. I wrote you on the 23. it has been raining ever since, and our river out of fording. as soon as I know that 2. boatloads of flour have actually started I shall draw on you in favor of Glinn & Mayo. Affectionately yours

Th: Jefferson
