Washington Aug. 1. 07.
Being to set out for Monticello this day, I must avail myself of your accustomed goodness to get my money affairs settled next week, as I cannot draw from the bank till then to do it myself. I have three heavy bills of 500.D. each drawn on me from Europe payable Aug. 6. Sep. 5. & Oct. 5. to mr William Pennock of Norfolk. the best mode of remittance is either by a draught of the bank here or that at Norfolk, or the Treasurer (Dr. Tucker) will give his draught on the Collector. I promised mr Pennock the remittence should be in one of these two ways. these paiments curtail what I wished to have left for you. the inclosed check for 1301.D. is to be applied as follows.
|remit||to Wm. Pennock||500.|
|to Jones & Howell of Philadelphia||281.|
|to Th:J. at Monticello in bk bills of moderate size||320|
|place to my credit with you||200.|
the mail goes to Monticello now every day in the week. I inclose also two notes for this & the next month at the bank of Columbia. I salute you with great affection & respect
