Monticello Sep. 5. 24.
I have desired my Correspdt in Richmd Colo B. Peyton to remit you the sum of 1208.20, to wit 125.D. interest and 1083. 20 on account of the principal I owe to Messrs V. Staphorsts . this leaves I believe exactly 1000. of principal still due and to be pd the ensuing year with intermediate interest. I have been later in doing this than I expected, having been later than was expected in getting my produce down to market, and this is the resource of a farmer and tobacco maker. hoping it will get safe to hand, I tender you the assurance of my esteem & respect
