Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to William Barret, 4 August 1823

Monto Aug. 4. 23.


On the 7th of July I recd from mr Saml Garland a letter dated Lynchbg July 3. stating that he had withdrawn my bond to Millar from yourself and that he insisted on payment of it’s balance during the current year. I had considered this as deciding that the must be paid within the course of the current year. myself and my grandson Th:J. R. (into whose hands I had committed all my affairs with full powers to transact them, age and debility obliging me to retire from them) had before determined on a large sale of property in Bedford about Christmas: and on the rect of this lre we had likewise determd that the whole of this debt should be paid of the immediate proceeds to be recieved at that sale. this will accdly be done to yourself, mr Garland, or any other holder of the bond, and being within the term prescribed, by mr G. I hope will be satisfactory

accept my respectful salutations.
