Thomas Jefferson to Francis Eppes, 28 August 1813

To Francis Eppes

Poplar Forest Aug. 28. 13

My dear Francis

After my return from this place to Monticello in May last I recieved the letters which yourself and your cousin Baker wrote me. that was the first information I recieved of your being at school at Lynchburg, or I should certainly have sent for you to come and see me while I was here. I now send 2. horses for yourself and your cousin and hope your tutor will permit you both to come and stay with me till Monday morning when I will send you back again. I left your aunt and all your cousins well in Albemarle. in hopes of seeing you here immediately I remain affectionately yours

Th: Jefferson
