Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Hartwell Cocke, 15 November 1819

Bremo Novr 15. 1819

Dear Sir,

Yours of the 5. inclosing Dr Coopers 3 letters, did not reach me until late the day before yesterday—or an answer wou’d have been more promptly returned.

I agree with you as to the reasonableness of Dr Coopers propositions, and concur in your proposal to accept them

May it not be as well to add, in case a Bankrupt law passes & Dr Cooper obtains the appointment he mentions—then, we wou’d not expect to be called upon for the $1500 in advance?

Yours with highest respect & Esteem

John H. Cocke
