Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Bernard Peyton, 18 September 1819

Rich’d 18 Septr. 1819

Dear Sir,

Seeing no prospect of an opportunity by water soon, have asked the favor of Col Randolph to allow his servant to take up a small Box for you, which has been detained here with the Cement for a considerable time waiting a conveyance.

Understanding that you have been much afflicted with the Rheumatism lately, mentioned it to my friend Major Gibbon, who has also suffered greatly with it, & he has furnished me with the enclosed memorandum on the treatment of it, with a request that I would forward it to you, with his respectful complts:— hoping you may find some benefit from it, remain

Very respectfully Sir Your Mo: Obd:

Bernard Peyton
