Monticello Aug. 10. 25.
I had been so long without hearing from you ( my last you being dated Oct. 8. 24.) that I sat down to communicate my anxieties which I had done in a long letter when the mail of that day brought me your’s of Apr. 13. I learn with regret that you had suffered inconvenience from the want of remittances, your former letters had given me reason to believe that the last and most important articles of our marble works would be ready for delivery in May, on the 7th of Mar. therefore I had had a remittance made of the sum of 3000.D. which you suppose would be about the balance due to you, and which would reach you in May in readiness for the delivery. the following statemt of payments is I believe nearly exact.

This Apercu would make a balance still due you from the University of 280.D. which should be now remitted were it the exact one. but hoping you will sen an exact one the Capitels . I shall defer remitting till when a remittance of the exact will close the transactions between the University and yourself.
