Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Federick Winslow Hatch, 3 March 1824

Wednesday March 3

Dear Sir

As the cause in Court on account of which you attended in Town yesterday did not come on & as your attendance will probably be requir’d today, will you do me the favor to make my house your Head quarters as a relief from the fatigues incident to a crowd, & take a family dinner with us—

I would have call’d at Monticello this morng with the Church Paper but the duties of the School will not admit of any long absence to day. You will therefore I hope excuse the unceremonious course I take in sending it by my Nephew. Mr Wood promises 50$ more if needed—as soon as the paper is fill’d, it will fall into the hands of Mr Garrett & Mr Maury—For a plan of a Church that might be built for $2500—we would be much obliged to you, & for your subscription there will be one heart truly grateful— yours truly

F W Hatch.
