march 8, 1810 (thurs.)

Eli Alexander, who rents a parcel of Thomas Jefferson's land at Lego, across the river, just west of Shadwell, seems to have been interpreting the terms of his lease rather broadly, while Mr. Jefferson insists that the wording is clear and means just what it says. So Mr. Jefferson is meeting him over there this morning with a couple of neighbors who can act as arbitrators to determine whether the terms of the lease have been broken as regards to which land was to be used for farming and firewood gathering, whether it was cleared and improved properly, and that it was properly fenced in.
