Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from George Jefferson, 10 September 1805

Richmond 10th. Septr. 1805

Dear Sir

I sent you yesterday by Mr. Randolph’s boat, a cask, containing 3 dozen bottles of syrup of punch; supposing, as so immediate an opportunity offered, it might probably reach you in that way, nearly as soon as by the Stage.

I forwarded likewise a box of fish, which we have but lately received from Mr. Crowninshield of Salem—having come in a tedious, & roundabout direction.

Your last note of 1000$ will be offered at the Bank on Friday next, which will have been the first discount day after its date—when it doubtless will be done.

I am Dear Sir Yr. Very humble Servt.

Geo. Jefferson
