Elizabeth Eppes to Thomas Jefferson, 10 February 1810

From Elizabeth Eppes

Eppington Feb. 10. 1810.

Dear Sir

Your favor of Jan 9. is just come to hand—on folding the letter I found the socks too large to go in it I inclos’d them in a separate paper & tied them with a thread to the letter—

I am delight’d with your account of my sweet Francis—I could not have supposed his progress could have been as great in writing—

We shall be happy to have your company in April & any part of your family that will do us that favor, for be assur’d the purest friendship will ever remain in my breast for every1 branch of it.—that you may enjoy health & happiness are the sincere prayers of

Your affectionate friend

E Eppes

RC (MHi); endorsed by TJ as received 15 Feb. 1810 and so recorded in SJL.

1Manuscript: “ever.”
