From David Isaacs

March 5th 1822

73 Beef 4½1 $4.56

D Isaacs

RC (MHi); written on a small scrap; dateline beneath signature; notation at foot of text in TJ’s hand: “438”; endorsed by TJ, followed by his additional notations: “

73 ℔ beef 6¼ 4.56
Mar. 7. 22. pd

1Thus in manuscript, with “6¼” presumably intended, since that number was noted by TJ and yields the total billed to and paid by him.
