From Thomas Jefferson

Monticello Feb. 12. 25.

I concur with entire satisfaction in your amendment of my resolution,1 and am peculiarly pleased with your insertion of Genl Wash’ns addresses, which had not occurred to me or I should have referred to them also.

I send you another letter of mr. Cabell’s2 which I think you will read with pleasure. Affectionate salutations.

RC (DLC: Rives Collection, Madison Papers); draft (DLC: Jefferson Papers). Minor differences between the copies have not been noted.
