From Thomas Jefferson to Martha Jefferson Randolph, 14 February 1809

Washington Feb. 14. 09

My dearest Martha

In the instant of the departure of the post Genl. Dearborne calls on me to know the name of a person for whom I applied to be made a Cadet; and I have forgotten the name, & cannot find it on a review of your letters, altho’ I know it was through you that the application came. pray let me know it by return of post; and I will keep the place open a few days. Genl. Dearborne leaves us in a few days; I have only time to add that Jefferson is well, & as his lectures will finish this month he will come on here to see me the 1st. of March, & return to commence the botanical lectures. my affections to mr Randolph & the young ones & tenderest love to yourself.

Th: Jefferson
