Monticello Nov. 13. 22.
At the same time with your favor the subject of the late Colo Wm Campbell I recieved one from mr John Campbell of Richmond, and to him, as nearest at hand I addressed my answer. observing to him that writing was painful to me from a disabled wrist, I prayed him to consider the answer as intended for you as well as himself. I have since that however got it copied by another hand and inclose it with the assurance of my high esteem & respect.
