Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from A. St. C. Heiskell, 16 September 1825

University of Va Sept 16th 1825.

Dear Sir,

Your kind letter was left at my Store in my absence, or I would have answered it by the Boy who brought it. At the time the Accts were opened one for yourself & one for Col Randolph I did not know all the goods purchased were to be charged to you alone, consequently I kept the Accts separately, for the future I shall keep it in your name according to request. You need not put yourself to any trouble in borrowing the Amt of Col Randolph Acct a Draft on Col Peyton will answer every purpose, I shall see him here on his return (& If I should be gone before) I have made the arrangement with him to receive my funds here I procure me a Check in Richmond on Phila.

The Box containing your Copying Machine I have Received & shall take great pleasure in attending to it for you, I shall call on Mr Peale with it the day I arrive in Phila & have it repaired in time to bring it Home with me in the Stage, you may expect to see it between the 15 & 20th. of Next Month

Yours Truly

A St C. Heiskell
