Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Nicholas H. Lewis, 21 October 1825

Monticello Oct. 21. 25.

Dear Sir

I have just now recieved your letter of Sep. 22 on the subject of appointing Commissioners in my case with the Rivanna company. I have long since put all my business into the hands of my grandson Th: J. Randolph, and must the more especially refer this to him, being unable to leave the house myself, nor likely to be otherwise soon if ever I will immediately communicate your letter to him and request his early attention to it, and whatever he does in the case shall be as if done by myself.

I pray you to be assured of my friendly esteem and respect

Th: Jefferson
