This will be handed you by Judge Wilson, a member of the Supreme federal court, who includes Charlottesville in his present circuit. His name and reputation are sufficiently known to you to render all recommendation unnecessary from me. As I know he will have a pleasure in your acquaintance, and he is worthy yours, I take the liberty of giving him this line of introduction to you. He will make...
Congress have resolved to rise the day after tomorrow and if nothing unforeseen happens, I think I may be at Monticello from the 1st. to the 8th. or 10th. of September, where I hope to remain a month. I have this day written to Mr. Brown of Richmond to send up some necessaries for which I shall have occasion during my stay. We must once more trouble our neighbors on the score of beds. If the...
I was called here about six weeks ago on public business, and am now again within three or four days of my departure for France. All attempts to induce this nation to enter into such arrangements as may place our commerce on equal terms, are absolutely fruitless. This is now decided. They think they can have our trade on their own terms. They rely that the Southern states will never interest...
This will be delivered you by Mr. Garland Jefferson, a relation of mine, who has been strongly recommended to me for his worth and genius. Having just finished his education, it is become necessary for him to think of some calling by which he may support himself, and the misfortunes of his father have left him without the means even of preparing himself for a calling. As his inclination is...
Unremitting business must be my apology, as it is really the true one, for my having been longer without writing to you than my affections dictated. I am never a day without wishing myself with you, and more and more as the fine sun shine comes on, which seems made for all the world but me. Congress will rise about the 21st. They have past the Representation bill at one for 33,000. which gives...
Mine of July 11. acknoleged the receipt of yours of April 15. The necessity that my daughters should now return to their own country, and an unwillingness to trust them to such a voiage without being with them, has induced me to ask of Congress a leave of absence for 5. or 6. months of the next year. If I obtain it in time, I propose to embark in the month of April, and to pass two months at...
