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...
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...
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...
I omitted to mention in my memorandum about the sale that if any ready money should be recieved, about £70. of it should be paid to Dr. Currie, and the residue, as far as £300. to Dobson. 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...
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 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. Calculating the interest on each of them to the last day of this month, they stand thus. Principal Interest Whole amount Woodson & Lewis on their bond £172–17–7 + £22–17–0 = £215–14– 7 Woodson. On his note    6– 7–0 +   1– 7–3 =    7–14– 3 (Lewis &...
I wrote you last on the 13th. of June. The Senate have passed the bill for fixing the residence of Congress at Philadelphia for ten years, and then permanently at Georgetown. It has been read once or twice in the H. of representatives and will be ultimately decided on the day after tomorrow. I believe it will pass there by a considerable majority. I imagine we shall remove from hence early in...
