To Thomas Jefferson from Thomas Mann Randolph, 9 April 1802

From Thomas Mann Randolph

Edgehill April 9. 1802.

Dear Sir,

Your letter inclosing Captain Lewises memorandum came to me regularly: I return him thanks for the information and express my gratitude to you for the credit you offerr me with the Georgia merchants. Long sickness or a broken limb should allways be deemed possible and provided for before hand.—Martha received the medal today: the execution is fine but Ceracchi was much better worth copying than Houdon. So good an imitation of the marble would be admirable.—The Country is just begining to smile here but the earth is very bare yet from drought. Your Tufton farm is an ornament to the County.—We are all well.

yours most affectionately

Th: M. Randolph

RC (MHi); endorsed by TJ as received 19 Apr. and so recorded in SJL.

YOUR LETTER: TJ to Thomas Mann Randolph, 28 Mch.

John H. Craven leased TJ’s TUFTON FARM (Vol. 32:108–10).
