Thomas Jefferson Papers

Gideon Granger to Thomas Jefferson, 1 March 1810

From Gideon Granger

Washington City March 1st 1810

Dear sir

I have duly received yours of the 24th Jany which has remained unanswered untill this time in consequence of continued and distressing sickness. I have been greviously afflicted with the Rheumatism in my head and bowels and a nervous affection.

A Post office is this day directed to be [. . .]d at George’s Tavern.

Next to the approbation of my own conscience the testimonial you have furnished of my fidelity in Public life furnishes the highest consolation.

I am, dear Sir, with great esteem and respect
your sincere Friend

Gidn Granger
