From Augustus B. Woodward
Washington, April 21. 1814.
I have been diverted by public business from waiting on you so early as I expected.
I contemplate setting out for Monticello to-morrow, or the day after.
I am charged with two packages for you from Dr Barton, of Philadelphia; which I shall have the honor of presenting you, on my arrival.
A. B. Woodward.
