Thomas Jefferson to John Barnes, 11 March 1817

To John Barnes

Monticello Mar. 11. 17.

Dear Sir

Yours of Feb. 28. was recieved on the 5th instant and I now inclose you a power of Attorney copied from th[e] form you sent me. it has been detained by the difficulty of access to a justice of peace in a county of 60. miles length over which they are sparsely scattered, and difficult to be found at home. I hope the form is such as not to require periodical renewals, which if the certificate of a magistrate be required would become excessively oppressive. ever and affectionately yours

Th: Jefferson
