I am under a thousand obligations to you, my Dear Sir, for the considerate aid of Wormley—since I got so much hurt by a fall from my gigg two summers ago I am timid with an untried horse—my present one started with considerable restiveness, insomuch that we cou’d not clear the Green mountain untill to day—and I have been compelled reluctantly to detain wormly from his post all night—my horse...
I have considered attentively, My Dear Sir, the hystory of your sufferings consequent upon your present indisposition, and deem it most advisable to make you a written memorandum of my views in relation to its nature and treatment—Dysuria, which is the proper denomination of your case, may proceed from various diseased states of any part of the urinary canal or cist—much obscurity hangs over...
If necessary & not otherwise M r Jefferson will aid the action of his bowels with injections for a few days—and if any thing like congestion is felt in the stomach or bowels—a thorough operation should be produced by rhubarb & prepared chalk or magnesium a tolerable active dose—to be proportioned according to his known habit—It will be best to avoid acids—as they will keep up longer than...

I wrote you a long letter from Lexington Kentucky informing of the complete triumph of the people there, over the partizens of an irresponsible Judiciary—Great exertions were making among the federalists and their connivants , to carry an electoral ticket for Jackson in opposition to the Clay ticket. It was not difficult, however, to discover, that Adams wou’d be prefered. I do...
Always feeling with gratitude the recollection of your kindness to me personally, and reluctant that separation shou’d sever all association between us I am constrained occasionally to remind you of my continued existence and affection—and although I am sensible that the oppression of your numerous correspondents makes the sight of a letter in general operate like a torpedo on the hydrophobia...
My Neighbour and friend the Rev d m r Watson, about to visit Virginia, having expressed a particular desire to call on you, I beg leave to introduce him to you—M r Watson is a Minister of the Methodist Episcopal church in this state—highly respectable in that station & universally esteemed an upright man and a patriot—Your civilities will be very grateful to him & much oblige me—The 1 st...
Partly with a view to public partly to private considerations, I have been induced to think of offering for the clerkship of the house of representatives in Congress. In other places where I have resided my principles and character are well known, and will receive such support as justice may dictate, for the last six or seven years however I have been immediately in your vicinity—and well...
M r Secretary Crawford left W:City early yesterday morning on a visit to his connections in Va. & I heard him say he wou’d call at Monticello—having several calls to make on the way I think it probable he may not reach you till the 11 th perhaps earlier if his horse and driver are good I am much better of my Rheumatism—& sincerely hope that you continue to improve in your own health—with my...
I send for the object mentioned to you, two horses, Doublehead & Rapid—Doublehead is sure any where placed—if his plight & appearance will do—the rest may be relied on without trial—If prefered in other respects, Rapid may be tried under the postillion before, or he may do the off before. My letters from Tennessee so far, give the best results of the late election—In the district where the...
