To Thomas Jefferson from Elizabeth Trist, 19 February 1821

Farmington 19th Feby —20

My Dear Friend

Miss Polly Marks has procured from her Aunt, some of the Mountain Raspberry which she heard you express a wish to have they were brought this Morning and shall be covered till it is convenient for you to send for them—and I enclose a few beautiful flowering beans which John Marks brought from the Mississippi some time since—as the Spring advances I feel some hope of seeing at Farmington, I dont think Mr Diverses health has been quite as bad it was last winter tho he has undergone copious bleedings and blistering—with love to Patsy and the young Ladies who I beg you will remind of their being in My debt, May God preserve you many years in health and happiness and believe me ever your sincere obliged Friend

E. Trist
