From Thomas Jefferson to St. George Tucker, 15 September 1795

To St. George Tucker

Sep. 15. 95.

Th:J. to Citizen Tucker

Come and take your nap with us to-night. I have not the pleasure of being acquainted with Mr. Carrington but if he will accompany you, I shall therefore be the more obliged to him. It will relieve you from the heats and drunken noise of Charlottesville and you will return in better tone to the functions of justice in the morning and more philanthropically disposed1 to gloss over the follies which are to be brought before you.—To put in my claim in time, I set up a prescriptive right to dine the judges on the Sunday of their session.

RC (ViW); addressed: “Judge Tucker”; endorsed by Tucker. Not recorded in SJL.
