Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Dabney Carr, 24 March 1819

Winchester. March 24th 1819.

My Dear Sir.

I recd a few days past your’s of M’ch 11th inclosing an advertisement for workmen. We have two papers published here, which I believe, pretty nearly, divide, the population in this part of the Valley; few men taking more than one—I have a thought of publishing the advertisement in both; but I observe you seem to contemplate, a single publication in one paper; I have therefore confined myself to this—if however, you choose, I can at any time have it published in the other paper. I will pay the printer & deduct the amount from my next instalment.

Sincerely & affectionately yrs

D Carr
