Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to Bernard Peyton, 15 February 1822

To Bernard Peyton

Monticello Feb. 15. 22.

Dear Sir

I was startled on reciept yesterday of yours of the 11th finding I had been off my guard as to the renewal of my notes. I now send them to you.   I must pray you to remit to mr McCulloch without delay 5. D 35 C duties Etc on the books. were it not for these odd 35. cents I would have saved you this trouble by inclosing him a 5.D. bill.   instead of the four barrels of Roman cement be so good as to send six barrels which I find that my cisterns will require.

Th: Jefferson
