Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Bayard & Co. LeRoy, 14 June 1819

New York June 14th 1819


To oblige us one of the Banks here has consented to take our draft on Mr Gibson for $422..25 the Interest to the 15 Inst on the payment you have to make us on the 7 May 1820 of $2083..20— The draft will, according to their fixed rule, be passed to our credit upon advice of its payment in Richmond being received— Altho’ attended with delay, this arrangement saves you from a loss of about 1½ pCt, at which rate checks on Richmond are now selling—

With much respect, we are Sir Your Hum. Servts
LeRoy Bayard & C
