Monticello Sep. 29. 07.
I recieved the inclosed grass seed, & letter from a mr Willis of whom, or whose place of residence I know nothing. the character he gives of the grass is such as to make it worthy an experiment: but my vagrant life renders it impracticable with me. knowing nobody more likely to give it a fair trial than yourself I confide it to your care if you think it worthy of it. I set out tomorrow for Washington; am rejoiced to hear of your improved health & shall hope to find it still more improved in April. I salute you with great affection.
