From Thomas Mann Randolph (1792–1848)

Dear Sir!

Being about to leave this for the purpose of entering Harvard College I take the liberty of soliciting from you a line of introduction to some gentleman connected with that seminary

The friendly sentiments you honored me with, when I had the pleasure of being at Monticello must be my apology for this intrusion

With the highest respect I am

T M. Randolph
