Mr. Randolph having determined to spend some months at Varina I am under the necessity of troubling you my dearest Father with a memorandum of the articles we shall want from Monticello. We have spent the hollidays and indeed every day in such a perpetual round of visiting and recieving visits that I have not had a moment to my self since I came down and we shall leave this on our way to Richmond next sunday where I hope to recieve a letter from you. Give my love to Maria and the children and believe me dearest Father with unchangeable affection your’s in great haste
The waggon will be at Monticello the 5th or 6th of the month.
