Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from George Jefferson, 29 September 1807

Richmond 29th. Septr. 1807

Dear Sir,

Within a few days after the date of my last, I was called out of town, and for some little time after my return was so much indisposed, as to have to confine myself to my room.

I have in consequence had it in my power to make but few enquiries with respect to the value of Mr. Mazzie’s property; and those few have been answered in a way, far from being satisfactory.

Some persons suppose the property to be worth not more than 4000$—whilst others go to 5, and even to 6000$.—I apprehend however that the lowest estimate, without some favorable change, will be found to be most correct, as such property in this place I think has of late been falling.

I am Dear Sir Yr. Very humble Sevt.

Geo. Jefferson
