Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to John Murchie, 24 May 1807

Washington May 22. 07. 24 1807


I went much later in the season than I expected to Monticello, and returned thence but a few days ago. I found by my papers there that the accounts which I had settled with different firms of which the Donalds made a part were with a store in Richmond, another in New London, & a third in Charlottesville, Albemarle. from the articles composing the account you inclosed me, I find it must have been the store in Albemarle under the case of Peter Davie with which I find no settlement. not doubting therefore his correctness. I will pay the account, say £15-17-10 with interest as charged in the account you sent me. this remittance, as well as that for McGehees balance, shall be made with the first convenience, and with little delay. I salute you with respect.
