Chapman Johnson to Thomas Jefferson, 16 November 1813

From Chapman Johnson

Staunton 16. Novr 1813

Dear Sir,

I had the pleasure of receiving your letter of the 7. by the last mail enclosing twenty dollars, my fee in the certiorari case of Michie, in the Albemarle Circuit court—.

I was very sorry to hear that indisposition had deprived us of the pleasure of seeing you, at Charlotte’sville—I hope when at Charlottesville hereafter, I shall have it in my power, to avail my self of your polite invitation to visit you at Monticello—

It gives me great pleasure to know, that the Rivanna Company are satisfied, of the propriety of the law, proposed last winter in the Senate, by way of amendment to the bill passed in the House of Delegates—. I am fully satisfied myself that justice required the protection of your rights, contained in that amendment, and I hope that no further difficulty will occur in its passage—If I should be present, in the Senate, I will attend to the verbal criticism which you suggest—

Very Respectfully Your Obt Svt

C Johnson

RC (MHi); endorsed by TJ as received 13 Dec. 1813 and so recorded in SJL.
