Notice of Sale of Monticello and Other Lands to Pay Thomas Jefferson’s Debts
Mr. Jefferson’s Debts—At the time of Mr. Jefferson’s death, his debts amounted to $107,000. This we know, from having seen a list, accompanied by unquestionable evidence of its correctness. From the Sales of personal estate, in January, 1827, and the funds which came into his hands, his executor has paid the sum of $12,849 on account of the interest accruing on that debt, and the sum of $35,000 in part discharge of it. There is, therefore, at this time, the sum of $72,000, remaining unpaid, to pay which, the lands of Mr. Jefferson are now offered for sale.
Valuable Lands for Sale.
The Lands of the Estate of THOMAS JEFFERSON, deceased, lying in the Counties of Campbell and Bedford, will be offered on the premises, if not previously sold privately, on Monday, the 22d of September next.
