Edmund Bacon to Thomas Jefferson, 25 January 1822

From Edmund Bacon

Jany 25 22

Deare sir.

In my bargain with Mr Randolph I am intitle’d to one barril of flour. in his absence I suppose I had as well ask you for it. I would also like to buy of you one other barril. they are now grinding some tollerable good wheat and when that is gone I dont imagen they will have any more this season and if you want any for your own use I think now is the time to get it unless you chuse to get it from Mr Craven who make better than Shadwell Mills   I am yours &C

E: Bacon
