Thomas Jefferson to Edmund Randolph, 17 May 1813

To Edmund Randolph

Monticello May 17. 13.

Dear Sir

The sale of Mazzei’s lots is at length concluded and the purchaser having deemed it necessary for me also to sign the deed as co-attorney with yourself, altho’ by a separate instrument, which being special did not revoke the power given to you, I have not hesitated to do so. I now forward it for your signature, and as that must be certified by some court, I must ask the favor of you to execute it before such witnesses as will be sure to attend a court, presuming it may be inconvenient to you to attend yourself. still I must request you to have the goodness to get it back from the clerk with the proper certificate, and to re-inclose it to me, as I shall have to acknolege it before our court, which being three weeks distant I have thought it best in the mean time to send it on to you. with every wish for your health & happiness, accept the assurance of my continued esteem & respect

Th: Jefferson
