Monticello Sep. 5. 08.
I this moment recieve yours of the 2d. and am confounded and ashamed at the incomprehensible omission of filling up the blank in the check for 1175. D. in your favor. I now send you another for the same sum, which you will recieve Thursday evening in time to send it by the post which leaves Washington Friday evening. I hope you will not have put yourself to the trouble of otherwise procuring the money, as it will be no inconvenience to me to wait a post. I fix on the 1st. day of October for my arrival at Washington, if nothing calls me sooner. I salute you with affection & respect.
