Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Mann Randolph, 26 May 1797

To Thomas Mann Randolph

Philadelphia May. 26. 97.

Th: J. to TMR.

Nothing new has occurred this week, except that prices get duller. Embargo is also now beginning to be talked of, and I begin to fear I shall not get the price for my tobacco which I have held it at. Ten dollars may perhaps be yet had, tho’ I have been afraid to ask the fact lest it should be thought a symptom of my falling. No judging yet when Congress will rise as the Representatives have not yet agreed on their answer. Adieu affectionately

Th: J.

RC (DLC); recorded in SJL under 25 May 1797; endorsed by Randolph as received 1 June 1797.
