Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Howe Peyton, 23 October 1819

Staunton Octr 23d 1819

Dear Sir

Before my return from Charlottesville the chancellor had set out upon his circuit which deprives me of the power of complying with your request, when last at Monticello.—I shall meet him next week at Lewis-burg when I will have a more destinal & detailed conversation with him after which I shall probably be able to apprize you more accurately of his views, than I was enabled to do from the hasty conversation held with him previous to the period when I last saw you.

as soon as I receive any farther information upon this subject worthy of communicating you shall hear from me—with sincere wishes for the speedy restoration of your health

I am Dr Sir with great respect Yr obt. Sert

John H. Peyton
