Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Galloway, 28 July 1803

To Benjamin Galloway

Monticello July 28. 1803.

Dear Sir

Your favor of the 19th is dated on the day I left Washington and finds me here, where I propose to pass our annual recess during the sickly season. the letter of which you desire a copy is among my papers at Washington, locked up, and the key here so that no copy of it can be obtained till I return, the last week in September when, if not too late for your purpose it shall be attended to. I have examined my papers here and find among them only a complimentary note recieved in November 1797. Accept my respectful salutations

Th: Jefferson
