Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Isaac Briggs, 28 May 1804

From Isaac Briggs

Brookeville 28th. of the 5th. Month 1804

My dear Friend,

I had intended to be in the City this day—but my aged Father having come one hundred and thirty miles on a visit to me, and considering that two days delay would increase the probability of my meeting with the Secretary of the Treasury, I have ventured to remain at home until the day after tomorrow. On that day, I expect to be in the City.

Accept my respectful esteem.

Isaac Briggs.
