From Thomas Jefferson to Martha Jefferson, 28 June 1787

To Martha Jefferson

Thursday June 28.

My dear Patsy

Madame de Traubenheim wrote me word yesterday you were unwell. I shall come to Panthemont to-day to pay her a visit, and to bring you to dine, if well enough. Let me know by the bearer if you are well enough to come out. Make it a rule hereafter to come dressed otherwise than in your uniform. Our dear Polly was to sail certainly the 1st. of May. She must therefore be arrived in England now. Adieu, my Dear, Yours affectionately,

TH: J.
