Thomas Jefferson Randolph to Thomas Jefferson, 4 June 1810

From Thomas Jefferson Randolph

Richmond June 4 1810

Dear Grandfather

I recieved your letter of the 14, not untill the 28 when I immediately bought the oil, but there has not been a boat from Milton since, by which I could send it; by the bottle it cost a Dollar; by the dozen 10 Dollars. There is to be a short vacation in the school on the first of July; & If I continue here the fall Months I would wish to go home then, if not I should prefer staying here untill the 15 of August when my quarter will expire & then return home; that however will depend entirely on your wish & papas; will you write me soon after you recieve this, (because your letters seldom reach me under ten days) whether remain here or not.

yours affectionately

Thos J Randolph

NB I have been confined three weeks from a cut of the Tendo Achilles, I shall be able to walk however in two or three days at farthest.
