Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to William Short, 5 January 1807

Washington Jan. 5. 07.

Dear Sir

In my note of Oct. 13. I inclosed you a draught of the United States bank here on that at Philadelphia for 1000. Dollars. I have been a little anxious to know that it got safely to hand; altho the safety of that kind of remittance is such as to leave one in little concern but for considerable sums.   instead of remitting a similar sum at this time, I am obliged to avail myself of the indulgence I have sometimes asked of remitting the one half this month & the other the next. I accordingly now inclose a draught of the bank here on that at Philadelphia for 500. Dollars.

In some of your former letters you spoke of passing a part of the winter here. that term is now advancing, & having heard nothing from you I have been afraid of some interruption in the progress of your convalescence. I shall be happy to hear that your health is perfectly reestablished, & that you still meditate a visit to this place. I salute you with constant & sincere affection & respect.

Th: Jefferson
