Wythe to Thomas Jefferson, 19 June 1801
George Wythe had asked Thomas Jefferson in a previous letter to get in contact with an officer who owed money to a freed woman that lives with Wythe. Wythe lets Jefferson know that the officer's brother has paid off the debt.
I took the liberty, my dear sir, some weeks ago, to ask the favor of you to put me in the way of getting from an officer, at a distant post, some money which he owed to a freed woman living with me. his brother hath this day agreed to discharge the debt. i hope you had no trouble about it. farewell. 19 jun, 1801.
