When I wrote to Mr. Randolph yesterday I did not think I should have time to write to you, and therefore put into his letter some articles for you to which I must refer you. The present is merely to cover a letter of John Jefferson’s which will explain to you his request to be still assisted in the recovery of his rights. I will thank you to have him furnished with what may be necessary to...
On my return here from a journey of a month I found a letter of Mr. Hylton’s dated May 29. informing me there were yet but 2 more hhds. of my tobo. arrived at Richmond (after the 17 which he had sent.) Uneasy at this, from the engagement I had entered into here, in my letter of two or three days ago to my daughter, I desired her to have this mentioned to you lest there should be a stoppage of...
I now return you the bonds of Woodson & Lewis and Lewis & Ware, as also Woodson’s note, and a statement of Lewis’s debt for the rent of Elkhill.

It is not probable so much will be received, if any, therefore it would be useless to say that any further sum should be paid to Hanson. Mr. Tom Cobbs applied to me to-day about 2. hhds. of tobo. carried down...
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...
Recieved from Colo. Nicholas Lewis the books and papers relative to my affairs and his superintendance of them from 1783. to this day and I hereby give him a full acquittal and discharge thereof and of all balances and demands on account of the same. Witness my hand the day and year above written. MS (Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation, on deposit ViU ); entirely in TJ’s hand; endorsed by...
