Richmond Sepr. 16. 1804.
E. Randolph, with best respects, to Mr. Jefferson.
Yesterday your suit with Johnson was tried; when the judge declared it to be perfectly clear in your favor, and dismissed the bill. Johnson’s counsel said, that she should make no remarks in opposition to the decree. I presume, therefore, that an appeal is not meditated. If it be so, the present result can never be varied.
