Author: Jefferson, Thomas, 1743-1826
Abstract: Informs Short that not all of his tobacco has been sold which means he can only pay Short $750 before Short returns to Europe; agrees with Short that a third negotiator at Paris is a good idea; explains that the president must consult with his cabinet on matters and how that process works; upon discussing Short's proposition with each cabinet member separately, the general opinion was that a third negotiator was not a good idea at this time; Mr. Bowdoin wants to come home from France; assures Short that he has not lessened his affections for him and does not understand why Short believes that; if Short cannot find a manager for his property, Indian Camp, Jefferson will look into one when he returns home.
