Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Joseph Miller, 12 May 1826

Monticello Virginia May 12. 26.


Your letter dated London Aug. 20. 1825 came to hand so long ago as Oct. 31. but considering impossible that a letter under that general address sent to such a city as London, should find you, I thought it useless to answer it. within a few days I learn that Genl Taylor of Norfolk was your father’s agent, and the only person who could give you a state of his affairs and that he knows your address. I therefore take the liberty of inclosing this and your letter to him with a request that he will give you the information desired. with the hope he will do this, accept my apology for this late answer.  with the assurance of respect & best wishes.

Th: Jefferson
