Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to George Jefferson, 8 March 1807

Washington Mar. 8. 07.

Dear Sir

I have still to pay of the remains of mr Wayles’s debt to Farrell and Jones, according to agreement with mr Kinnan their agent at Petersburg £ 108.15 Virginia currency with interest at 5. per cent from May 7. 1800. until paid. the paiment being to be made at Petersburg, I inclose you a draught of the Treasurer of the US. on the Collector at Petersburg for 500. D. and I must pray you out of this to pay mr Kinnan as abovementioned, & to recieve from him my last bond, and send it to me at Monticello.

I shall send from hence 15. or 20. packages by the first vessel bound to Richmond which I will pray you to forward by the first safe boats to Monticello, as they will contain stores for my use there. I am in hopes within a week or 10. days that mr Randolph will be well enough to proceed to that place with me. he has been most dangerously ill; but has been clear of fever now 24 hours and, we think, out of all danger if no accident happens. I shall leave this as soon as he shall be strong enough to go with me. I expect my tobo. is arrived & arriving at Richmond to be inspected there. I shall wish it converted into money as soon as possible, and shall thank you to say a word about prices in your next letters. Accept my affectionate salutations.

Th: Jefferson
