Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to James Oldham, 23 February 1806

Washington Feb. 23. 06


It is now become very material that the whole of my doors should be finished & got to Monticello as speedily as possible, as my painter will otherwise have left me. he is a most capibal hand, and should he not paint them, it may be years before I have another opportunity.

Capt. Andrews is gone to New York, he told me before he went away that he was desired to leave some money for you in my hands, & that as it was not yet collected, he would put the orders into the hands of my coachman (a very intelligent & trusty man) to collect. I have just enquired of Daugherty (the coachman) who tells me mr Andrews left one order for [19]8.80 D another for 30. D. both due the 5th. of March, & that he was to call on mrs Andrews for 25. or 30. D. cash, which he has not yet done. when the money is actually collected, I shall hold it subject to your order. Accept my best wishes
