Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James Breckenridge, 28 September 1820

Fincastle Sep. 28th 1820

Dear Sir

I must beg you to excuse me for not attending the board of Visitors on Monday next. I am so much afflicted with a pain in the back that the journey, even in a carriage, would be attended with great inconvenience. I will endeavour to visit to University on my way to the assembly when I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you.

Yours with sincere friendship & esteem

James Breckenridge
