Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Mann Randolph, 8 June 1826

Monto June 8. 26

Dear Sir

I have for some time entertained the hope that your affairs being once wound up, your mind would cease to look back on them, and resume the calm so necessary to your own happiness and that of your family & friends, and especially that you would return again to their society. I hope there remains no reason now to delay this longer, and that you will rejoin our table and fireside as heretofore. it is now that the value of educn will prove itself to you in the resource to books of which it has qualified you to avail yourself and which asked by the conversation and endearmts of your family and every comfort which this place can be made to afford you will I hope ensure to you future ease and happiness. be assured that to no one will your society be more welcome than to myself, and that my affectionate frdship to you and respect are constant and sincere

Th: J.
