From Thomas Eston Randolph

2nd Septr 1822 Shadwell Mill

Dear Sir

I have been grinding all day, altho’ to a very great disadvantage—the works are badly constructed but I trust a remedy may yet be found—I saw Mr Read at Court—and he has promised to be here tomorrow and to bring Mr Ligon with him—

very respectfully Yrs

Thos Eston Randolph

I shall be glad if you will direct Mr Meeks to fix the partition for the midling room—

RC (MHi); written on a half sheet; dateline at foot of text; addressed: “Thos Jefferson Esqr.”

mr ligon: Willis Liggan.
