Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from William Waller Hening, 17 May 1808

Richmond 17th. May 1808


Perceiving from the public prints, that you have lately left the seat of Government on a short visit to Monticello, I am desirous of arranging with you, while there, the materials for the edition of the Statutes at Large which I am about to publish.—I shall take the stage next week, for Albemarle, in order to confer with you on the subject; and should you contemplate an absence from Monticello before that time, it would confer a favour on me to inform me of your determination—My public and professional engagements are such, that I have not a moment to spare from this place.

I am respectfy. yrs
