I am very happy to find that two of you can write . I shall now expect that whenever it is inconvenient for your papa & mama to write, one of you will write on a piece of paper these words ‘all is well’ and send it for me to the post office. I am happy too that miss Ellen can now read so readily. if she will make haste and read through all the books I have given her, and will let me know when...
I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 3d , my dear Jefferson, and to congratulate you on your writing so good a hand. By the last post I sent you a French Grammar, and within three weeks I shall be able to ask you, “Parlez vous Français, monsieur?” I expect to leave this about the 9th, if unexpected business should not detain me, and then it will depend on the weather and the...
Your’s of the 28 th ult. came to hand by our last post. I have consulted your father on the subject of your attending mr Godon’s lectures in mineralogy, and we consent to it so long as the Botanical lectures continue. we neither of us consider that branch of science as sufficiently useful to protract your stay in Philadelphia beyond the termination of the Botanical lectures. in what you say...
In the even current of a country life few occurrences arise of sufficient note to become the subject of a letter to a person at a distance. it would be little interesting to such an one to be told of the distressing drought of the months of April & May, that wheat & corn scarcely vegetated and no seeds in the garden came up; that since that we have had good rains but very cold weather, so that...
It may seem odd that while I was involved in so much business at Washington , I could yet find time to write to you sometimes, and that I have not been able to do it in my present situation. but the fact is that letter writing was there my trade. from sunrise to near dinner was to be of course devoted to it, & a letter more or less made little odds. but in our country economy, letter writing...
I recieved by the last post your letter of the 9 th expressing your desire to study half the day in your own room rather than in the school, if mr Gerardin’s consent should be obtained; & I have consulted your father on the subject. we both find ourselves too much uninformed of the regulations of the school to form a proper judgment on this proposition. if it would break through any rule which...

I have safely recieved the 4. bottles of oil you sent me and find it very good insomuch that I wish to get more of the same batch. for this purpose I inclose you 10.D. and pray you to get as much more as that will pay for, letting me know at the same time the price, and how much more of the same oil the person has: because if it be cheap, I may still lay in a larger stock of it. send it up by...

I thank you for your letter of Aug. 31. it was our first authentic information of what was passing at Richmond , and we are so flooded with lies that all is as blank paper to me which does not come thro’ a known channel. you see therefore, how acceptable your Letters will be to me. I can give you nothing in exchange but the state of health of the family, which at present is all in perfect...

Your letter of the 31 st was recieved yesterday and gave me a fine night’s rest which I had not had before since you left us, as the failure to hear from you by the preceding mail had filled me with fearful forebodings. I am pleased with the train you are proceeding in, and particularly with the appointment of valuers. under all circumstances I think I may expect a liberal valuation, an...
I duly rec d your affectionate letter of the 3 d and percieve there are greater doubts than I had apprehended whether the legislre will indulge me in my request to them. it is a part of my mortifin to percieve that I had so far overvalued myself as to have counted on it with too much confidence. I see in the failure of this hope a deadly blast of all peace of mind during my remaining days. you...
Bad news, my dear Jefferson, as to your sister Anne. She expired about half an hour ago. I have been so ill for several days that I could not go to see her till this morning, and found her speechless and insensible. She breathed her last about 11 o’clock. Heaven seems to be overwhelming us with every form of misfortune, and I expect your next will give me the coup de grâce . Your own family...

I received yours without date of either time or place, but written, I presume, on your arrival at Philadelphia. As the commencement of your lectures is now approaching, and you will hear two lectures a day, I would recommend to you to set out from the beginning with the rule to commit to writing...
My letter of the 24th. will have answered your enquiries about the family at Edgehill, as yours of the 25th. answers mine on several subjects. mr Voigt will have a good opportunity of sending my watch by Doctor Porter or Dr. Say the members who will be coming on from Philadelphia to Congress within 5. or 6. days after you recieve this. I am acquainted with both & I am certain either will be so...
I inclose you a letter which came to me under cover of one from your mama. it was accompanied by a bundle too large for the post, & too small to be trusted by itself to the stage.

I inclose you two letters from home, which I presume will inform you all are well there. I have no answer yet respecting your inoculation, but perhaps your father’s letter may contain it. but will not the scar on your arm shew it? will you ask Dr. Wistar to send me some vaccine matter to forward to Edgehill where they wish to vaccinate, being under apprehensions of the small pox. will there be...
I had letters from home of last Thursday informing me all there were well. the disturbance among the negroes of which you heard took place in Nelson county (part of Amherst) under the blue ridge and so remote from Charlottesville that it had no other effect there than to produce some vigilance. it was prevented entirely by a previous arrest of the small band concerned in it.—I have never yet...
