On this view of the subject I must pray you after paying Wanscher & Lemaire’s sums to remit me immediately 250. D. in bills of the bank US. and as there will not remain enough for mr Short’s remittance, and I have further indispensable calls here towards the end of the month, we must retain it, & remit to him the next month. Lenox’s must also wait till then & the rather as I have no notice yet that his work is done.

We shall be happy to see you here and to have your visit lengthened as much as you can. Drop me a line the post before your setting out, and my servant who goes always for my mail to Milton, shall carry a horse for you. It will save you 2½ miles in 5. and of the very worst road of the whole. I salute you with affection & best wishes.

Th: Jefferson
