Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Barclay, 15 November 1792

To Thomas Barclay

Philadelphia Nov. 15. 1792.

Dear Sir

The object of this is merely to inform you that I sometimes hear from Mrs. Barclay and your family, and always that they are well. Whenever I recieve letters from you, I drop her a line informing her of it and of the place where you are, which I shall continue to do while I remain here. A set of newspapers are always laid by for you, and forwarded to Mr. Pinckney. As this is probably the last letter I shall write you, I beg you to be assured of my best wishes for yourself and family, and that I am with very sincere esteem Dear Sir Your friend & servt
