Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Bernard Peyton, 29 August 1822

Monticello Aug. 29. 22.

Dear Sir

I find that in my letter of Yesterday I omitted to notice the paragraph in yours which promised me a visit from judge Greene and yourself. nothing can give me greater pleasure than such a visit. altho not personally acquainted with the judge, I have been taught to revere him for every good quality, and to consider him as one of the sheet anchors of our republican bank. I shall be at home all September, & ready to recieve the visit with distinguished Welcome. present me to him with all respect, and accept for yourself the assurance of my affectionate esteem.

Th: Jefferson
