Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Patrick Gibson, 27 May 1805

Washington May 27. 05

Messrs. Gibson & Jefferson

Having to remit the sum of 100. D. to Mr. John W. Eppes, and not certain of the safety of the post between him and Richmond, I have thought it better to deposit the sum with you subject to his order. I therefore inclose you a postnote of the Richmond bank in favor of W. A. Burwell & indorsed by him to yourselves, which be pleased to recieve & pay to the order of mr Eppes. Accept my friendly salutations.

Th: Jefferson

MHi: Coolidge Collection.
