Thomas Jefferson to Randolph Jefferson, 2 March 1813

To Randolph Jefferson

Mar. 2. 13.

Dear brother

Having been from home the last fall during most of the season for saving seeds, I find on examination that my gardener has made a very scanty provision. of that however I send enough to put you in stock: to wit Early Frame peas. Ledman’s peas. long haricots. red haricots. grey snaps. Lima beans. carrots. parsneps. salsafia. spinach. Sprout kale. tomatas. I have sent you none of the following because all your neighbors can furnish them, & my own stock is short. to wit Lettuce. radish. cucumbers. squashes. cabbages. turneps. mrs Randolph makes up some flower seeds for my sister. I do not expect to go to Bedford till late in April. if by that time I learn that the road from mr Hudson’s to Scott’s ferry is passable I will certainly call on you. I meant to have done it as I returned in November last, but learned that the boat at that ferry was gone, & that I would not be able to cross there. all here are well and salute my sister & yourself, disappointed that you did not come for the seeds. Adieu

Your’s affectionately

Th: Jefferson
