I have been so closely engaged ever since the meeting of Congress as never to have had a moment to write to you. I think it might be well to advertize my lands at Elkhill for sale, and therefore inclose you the form of an advertisement, in which you will observe I have omitted the name of the proprietor, which as long as I am in public I would wish to keep out of view in every thing of a...
I omitted in my Memorandums to mention 2. boxes of books marked T.I. No. 1. and No. 2. which are packed, and a box containing a Spinet which the carpenters have to put a top to, which when done I have taken the liberty to direct shall be carried to your house, and perhaps when there you had better order the same person to go on with [them] to Charlottesville, from whence they may be better...

I imagine we shall remove from hence early in...

Witness my hand the day and year above written. MS (Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation, on deposit ViU ); entirely in TJ’s hand; endorsed by...
I should sooner have acknoleged the receipt of Mrs. Lewis’s kind letter of Apr. 14 . but for a periodical headach which attacked me the 1st. of May, and has not yet quitted me entirely; tho since the first week it has been very moderate, and now is almost nothing. I sincerely rejoice to hear of your recovery, which judge Wilson assures me of. I inclose a few grains of high-land rice which I...
