To Peter Derieux

Poplar Forest near Lynchbg Nov. 22. 16

Dear Sir

I received last night only, and at this place, where I have been a month, your favor of Oct. 27. I return to Monticello in a few days, where I will avail myself of the first moments of leisure to send you a copy of mr Mazzei’s will, praying you to accept in the mean time the assurances of my respect and esteem.

Th: Jefferson
