Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from George Jefferson, 3 June 1807

Richmond 3d. June 1807

Dear Sir

Having received payment for the Tobacco, I inclose you 350$ which is about the balce due you.

The two stemm’d Hhds I have not yet sold. The wreck’d articles have arrived, except 1 of the boxes & 3 of the Casks.—On those, I expect the Sailors regaled themselves, as they probably contained liquor.—One of the boxes being in bad order, I took out several bottles which appear to have contained wine, and found them mostly empty.

The packages do not appear to have been much wet.

I am Dear Sir Yr Very humble Servt.

Geo. Jefferson
