Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Stephen Pleasonton, 20 September 1807

Monticello. Sep. 20. 07


You have done perfectly right in stopping the commission ordered for Benajah Nicholls as Surveyor of Windsor & I thank you for it. at the same time I have no recollection of the name of William H. Ruffin as appointed to that office, nor does my list of the commissions I sign note any such one as having been signed. I presume therefore it has been a blank filled up, & therefore has not come to me for signature. I salute you with respect.
