Thomas Jefferson Papers

Augustus B. Woodward to Thomas Jefferson, 21 April 1814

From Augustus B. Woodward

Washington, April 21. 1814.


I have been diverted by public business from waiting on you so early as I expected.

I contemplate setting out for Monticello to-morrow, or the day after.

I am charged with two packages for you from Dr Barton, of Philadelphia; which I shall have the honor of presenting you, on my arrival.

Accept, Sir, my veneration, and respect.

A. B. Woodward.

RC (DLC); at foot of text: “The Honorable Thomas Jefferson”; endorsed by TJ as received 30 Apr. 1814 and so recorded in SJL.
