To Francis Eppes

Poplar Forest Nov. 26. 13.

dear Francis

I have written to ask the favor of mr Halcomb to permit your cousin Baker and yourself to come and pass tomorrow and next day with me here. I send horses for you both, and will send you back on Monday morning. I left your aunt and cousins well at Monticello, and in the hope of seeing you here this evening, I remain affectionately
