To Thomas Jefferson from Charles Willson Peale, 15 October 1808

Museum Octr. 15. 1808

Dear Sir

I have received one hundred Dollars inclosed in your favor of the 12th. Instant, and with pleasure will exercise a parental care for your Grandson Mr. Th. Jefferson Randolph—

Mrs. Peale will be prepaired to receive him at the expected time—

I am at a loss to know which Poligraph has the fault of bad wrighing at the top, but suspect it is a small one. that for writing on foolscap paper I presume is more corrict. I must take a little more time to devise what can be done and write again shortly.

I am with much esteem your friend

C W Peale
