Lynchburg, July 19th, 1819
With the expectation that I should meet you in this place, where I’ve been for two or three days, Jefferson placed in my hands $240; which, to be added to a sum in your possession, more to take up a note due, in a few days, in the Bank. Not meeting with you, agreeably to expectation, I’ve deposited the sum in the Bank of Virginia, subject only and payable to your order.
With Sentiments of respect and esteem,
V W Southall
