Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Bolling, 2 June 1807

N. Garden June 2d. 1807—

Dear Sir,

Although my feelings are as much hurt at being under the necessity of troubleing my friends as most mens, yet my present situation induces me to resort to you for the loan of a thousand Dollars which shall be thankfully returned with my grateful acknowledgment for the accommodation, as soon as I can finish my crop & get it to market. In the mean time I will execute a deed of trust on my Land for the Amt. & leave with Mr. Randolph in case of accidents.

I had given a fourthcoming bond, & intended to have appeal’d which would have given me time to have finished my crop; but an act of the last Assembly deprived me of that right. Be so good as write me by the next Mail, as my days of grace are but few. I am Dr. Sir your Affte. friend & St.

J Bolling
