Thomas Jefferson Papers

Francis W. Gilmer to Thomas Jefferson, 15 November 1820

From Francis W. Gilmer

Richmond. 15th Nov. 1820

dear Sir.

I have this moment received the farewell of Mr. Corrêa to Virginia, to you, and to us all. I cannot so well acquit myself of the obligation his kindness has laid me under, as by inclosing his letter to you. I who know the sincerity of the sentiments it contains, can appreciate its worth. Read it, and be good enough to return it at your leisure.

with the highest respect & esteem &c your friend & Sert

F. W. Gilmer
