To Julian Ursin Niemcewicz
Washington June 29. 1801.
Your favor of the 16th. is just recieved. I shall be at Monticello during the months of Aug. & Sep. which I believe comprehend the [seeding] time of the Polygala Seneca, in which case I will endeavor to have some saved. I know however it is become extremely rare. lest my efforts should fail, I may mention that in that event Bartram could furnish either the plants or [seeds].—I recieved from mr Littlepage a letter dated in the winter & assuring me he should come [home] early in the spring. He was then at Altona. accept my sincere and affectionate esteem.
