Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Thomas Claxton, 6 February 1806

Capitol Feb. 6, 1806

Honord Sir

When I had the honor of laying before you my accounts, there were left in my hands unexpended five hundred dollars—this sum has since been expended and I flattered myself that I might have gone on until after the adjournment of Congress without troubling you on this subject; but there is due to Mr Webb something more than two hundred dollars which he is distressed for consequently I am obliged, on his account, to beg of you, Sir, to send me a note to the Secretary of the Treasury, requesting an advance from the furnishing fund, of fifteen hundred dollars

I have the honor to be Sir Your most obedt & Hble Svt

Thos Claxton
