Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Bernard Peyton, 28 August 1823

Richd 28 Augt 1823

Dear Sir,

Yours of the 25th curt, covering blanks for the renewal of your notes at Bank, have been received, & shall be attended to—

I hold William Dabuey’s receipt, dated 22d July 1823, for six Barrels of Herrings, and one of Shad, which he binds himself to deliver in good order to you, at Monticello:—What can have become of him, & the Fish, I cannot conjecture, it is not improbable however, that he has stored them some where on the River, until the water, & his other arrangements, may suit to cary them up without inconvenience to himself, for which he certainly should be held accountable—

I will make dilligent search for a good New England cheese for you, if I succeed, will immediately forward it, by a Waggon, to Charlottesville, care Raphael, of which you shall be also advised—

With great respect Dr Sir Yours very Truly

Bernard Peyton

Flour $5½ no demd

Wheat $1 @ 104 brisk


I am sincerely pleased to hear you have recovered your health again—hope to see you at Monticello about middle next month

B. P.
