Monticello Sep. 6. 07.


I have recieved your letter of Aug. 31. and now inclose you fifty dollars according to request. I am sincerely glad that your family dispute is made up, as I am convinced it will tend to your own happiness, and particularly to the well-being of your children. the differings between man & wife, however they may affect their tranquility, can never produce such sufferings as are consequent on their separation. I shall be glad to recieve you again into my service as well to promote your reunion, as that your services have always been useful & duly estimated by me. I tender you my best wishes.

Th: Jefferson
