Monticello Sep. 19. 07.
I have just recieved your favor of the 8th. informing me that the board of Trustees for the public school in Washington had unanimously reappointed me their President. I pray you to present to them my thanks for this mark of their confidence, with assurances that I shall at all times be ready to render to the institution any services which shall be in my power. Accept yourself my salutations and assurances of great respect & esteem.
