Th: Jefferson asks the favor of the heads of departments and Atty Genl to meet to-day at 12. oclock on a consultation. Catalog--Paul C. Richards Autographs.
It has been so long since I had the pleasure of hearing from you, that I feel anxious to know whether in the tranquil scenes of retirement you continue to enjoy your usual good health, for I know you must enjoy, unclouded, except by sickness, that serenity of mind, which is the constant companion of a pure conscience: The diadem of the a man, who can repeat with truth, the sentiment of the...
Your letter of Feb. 19 . has been recieved with very sincere pleasure. it recalls to memory the sociability, the friendship, and harmony of action which united personal happiness with public duties, during the portion of our lives in which we acted together. indeed the affectionate harmony of our Cabinet is among the sweetest of my recollections. I have just recieved a letter of friendship...
On my return home, after an absence of many months, I am naturally led to enquire, after the health & happiness, of those, who are the constant objects of my respect regard & solicitude. Among the first in my affections, is the sincere & uniform friend of my youth to whom I have always been personally & politically attached. The people, of S. America whom I have lately visited, resemble in...
A long absence from home, my dear friend, and long indisposition since my return, must apologise for this late and short acknolegement of your favor of Aug. 8 . I am on the recovery, but not yet able to set up to write but in pain. I can therefore only return you thanks for the communications of your letter, which strengthen my hopes that our Southern brethren may be able to do as we have...
I must beg you to accept the copy of my friend Brackenridge’s “ Voyage to S. America ,” herewith transmitted, as a small token of my undiminished attachment to your person, and my unfeigned veneration for your character. I have only to regret that it is not bound in a style more worthy of being presented to the author of the first Declaration of American Independence. But having waited...
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...
