Your’s of Dec. 19. is recieved. a letter from an antient friend and fellow-laborer in good works is like refreshing showers, to a thirsty plant. when the pleasures of prospect are shut up to advanced life, those of retrospect are it’s remaining comfort. and the times into which we fell. and the scenes and trials we have gone thro’ together, afford abundant matter to employ retrospection, and...
I lamented extremely that my time, did not allow me to stay longer with the best of friends, on my late visit to Monticello. I had intended to head home the last of June, instead of July, but was unfortunately prevented by an attack of Lumbago, which confined me to my house for a month nearly. this delay, made the period of my departure approach the commencement of our Court of Chancery which...
Your’s of the 1 st is received, and I note your recommendation of mr Askew, to whom I should be glad to be useful, as well on account of your recommendation as of his merit. but our work has been done entirely by undertakers, bricklayers at 10.D. a thousand, & house carpenters at the Philada prices. so that we have nothing to do with the daily laborers, or any body but the Undertaker. I wish...
I have lately recovered from a severe attack of fever, which confined me to my bed for ten days; & I propose to visit Philad a , tomorrow, where I shall see my old friend S. Gerard, & procure from him some of the genuine Maldonado Pamphis seed, for yourself. I prefer his, because he has taken more pains in the cultivation of this fine vegetable, & has kept it far separated from any other of...
It is with deep regret I have observed a malevolent attempt, to disturb the repose of your old age, by obtruding on the tranquility of your retirement, with an attack as unfounded & untrue, as it is unjust & ungenerous. Such is the full Hydra of party, that all its heads cannot be rendered inoffensive, tho’ they may be harm less. In this instance (as in all others) you have obtained a complete...
Your favor of July 10. has been recieved. the view therein taken of the impossibility of the fact charged by the Native Virginian is certainly conclusive; but I believe we may leave that calumniator to the judgment of the world. The public papers have announced your mission to Buenos Ayres, but the silence of your letter on the subject is at least not confirmative of it. I sincerely wish...
The infirm state of my health, since the two severe attacks of fevers at Washington, last winter, has rendered exercise & relaxation, necessary to its restoration; and I had, in view, for some time, the position of visiting Monticello, or I should have returned an earlier answer to your acceptable favor of the 26. of July last. I need not add, what heartfelt pleasure it would have given me to...
When I had the pleasure of visiting you at Monticello, I mentioned a letter from the late Governor Milton to me, relating to rumours, on the day that Congress adopted the Declaration of Indepence, which I had sent to M r Rives, who, unfortunately mislaid it. The other day he was lucky enough to find it, & to deliver it to me; and I now enclose you, agreeably to my promise, a copy of the...
Your favor of Mar. 18. has been duly recieved, and in it the copy of Gov r M c kaim’s letter. what he says of your respectable uncle is all true, and I within my own recollection. his memory has failed him in some other particulars of no importance. he has confoundd two distinct votes and blended together the transactions on them as if on one, to wit the vote on the Virga proposn to declare...
