Monticello May 6. 19.
An unexpected delay in my return from Bedford lost me a mail in the time of sending the inclosed note proposed in my letter of Apr. 22. I hope it will be received, & shall be glad to be notified of it as soon as done. The 50. barrels of flour from the Shadwell mills which I mentiond as to be sent immediately, Messrs Randolph & Colclater tell me are ready and will be sent off on the return of the Milton boats now on a trip to Richmond. Your’s with friendship & respect.
