Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to John Paradise, 17 July 1788

To John Paradise

July 17. 1788.

My Dear Sir

When your letter was delivered me this morning, my servant had just set out with one to you. I am uneasy till I hear from you and know what your wants may be which you wish to have furnished immediately, and which shall accordingly be furnished. Have you heard that the royal thunder has fallen on the Marquis de la fayette?

Your’s affectionately,

Th: Jefferson

PrC (DLC).
