To Thomas Jefferson from William Armistead Burwell, 22 May 1820

Lynchburg, May 22d 1820

Dr Sir

Mr Hepburn is at this time engaged on a Mill about 12 Miles from this place. I cannot learn exactly the place; But I have left the letter for him with Daniel Brown who expects to see him in a few days & has promised to give you the earliest answer; I have also requested him to State the necessity of his visiting you without delay, & have very little doubt you will see him shortly—I have sent Gill back & given him instructions to take special care of the horse—In return for your kindness I beg you to accept my Sincere thanks—that you may continue to enjoy every blessing is the first wish of my heart—

your friend

W. A Burwell
