Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Martha Jefferson Randolph, 19 April 1805

Monticello April 19 1805

My Dearest Father

Mr Randolph’s election is almost certain the polls stand, Alb. TM.R 503 W.L. 140. Amh. TM:R. 390 WL. 474. which leaves Mr Randolph a majority of 279, so that independant of his influence in Fluvanna which is great, he is safe. we are all well, but I am moored here till thursday as he stopped a day with us on his way to Fluvanna where he now is, of course I am obliged to stay till his return. the weather is very favorable to your new plantation but many of the thorns I am told are certainly dead. adieu My Dear Father it is so late I am in danger of Losing the post yours most tenderly
