To John Banister, Jr.
Bourdeaux May 26. 1787
Th: Jefferson’s compliments to Mr. Bannister. Meeting at this place with Capt. Gregory, just sailing for Virginia he takes the occasion of inclosing to him two letters received in the course of his journey. The hurry in which he is leaves him time at present only to reiterate his prayers for the health and happiness of Mr. Bannister and assurances of his esteem, as well as of that he bears to Mr. Bannister the father, and Mrs. Bannister.
