Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Bernard Peyton, 11 November 1819

Monticello Nov. 11. 19.

Dear Sir

The period for renewal of my note in the Farmer’s bank being now at hand, I inclose one endorsed as before by my grandson, but requiring the favor of your name also as a town endorser according to the regulations of that bank. not knowing at how many days after date they require notes, I have left that blank. our boats which left Milton Oct. 10. are not yet returned, there not being water enough in the river to float an empty boat. I hope you recieved Cardelli’s box, and that you may have had an opportunity of forwarding it to Washington, as he is very impatient to get it.

affectionately yours

Th: Jefferson
