From William Wirt
Richmond—Sept. 25. 1816.
Wm1 Wirt, with respectful compliments to Mr Jefferson, sends a few more sheets of the biography—and thinks he may venture to add the consoling assurance that a few more pages, (20, or at the most 30) will put an end to the trouble to which Mr Jefferson has been so kind as to subject himself.
