M r Randolph first, and latterly mr Short have flattered me with the hope that you would pay us a visit with the returning season. I should sooner have pressed this but that my vernal visit to Bedfor d was approaching, and I wished to fix it’s precise epoch, before I should write to you. I shall set out now within a few days, and be absent probably all the month of May; and shall be very happy...

When I learned that you proposed to give a course of Botanical lectures in Philadelphia , I feared it would retard the promised visit to Monticello . on my return from Bedford however on the 4 th inst. I recieved a letter from M. Dupont flattering me with the prospect that he and yourself would be with us so soon as my return should be known. I therefore in the instant wrote him of my return ,...
I arrived here the morning after we parted, to wit, yesterday morning, and I have this day written by mail to mr Rhea and Gov r Milledge : but I have thought it also safe to inclose in this letter a duplicate of that to Gov r Milledge , and put both under cover to mr Rhea , lest any miscarriage should happen to that sent by mail. there is no person in Georgia who can be so useful to you as mr...
I learnt, my dear Sir, with inexpressible concern, on my arrival at home, that my detention in Bedford had lost me the pleasure of your visit here. having heard nothing from you since our parting on the Natural bridge , I had supposed your return longer delayed than you had expected, and that even possibly your course might be so shaped as to take Poplar Forest in your way. I hungered for your...

I returned from Poplar Forest about a week ago, and found here your favor of June 16. I learn with sincere regret your rheumatic indisposition; and the more as it strikes so directly at your summu n m bonum of botanical rambles. would it not be well to direct these towards the Augusta springs, which we consider as specific for that complaint? they are but about 80. or 90. miles from Monticello...
