Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $5,637.50 (includes buyer's premium)


ALS, presumably as president, signed “Th: Jefferson,” one page, 7.75 x 3, no date but circa July 28, 1801. In full: "Th: Jefferson presents his salutations to Mr. Peyton. He has received the pair of horse nettings in good order, and being now making his last arrangements for departure incloses him 10 Dollars the price mentioned. Health & respect." Double-matted and framed to an overall size of 13 x 26. In very good to fine condition, with old tape to the left edge, scattered staining, minor loss to the right edge slightly affecting two words of text, and splitting to the intersecting folds.

Jefferson's memorandum books from 1801 record a payment of $10 to a Francis Peyton for horse nettings on July 28, 1801, four months into his presidential term; on July 30, 1801, Francis Peyton wrote to Jefferson, returning 'half the money sent me for the horse nettings as I shall then have retained the full value of them in their present situation.' Francis Peyton (ca. 1764-1836) was a prominent Alexandria merchant and a nephew of state senator Francis Peyton of Loudoun County, Virginia.
