Richmond 13th March 1819—
I had the pleasure of receiving your very kind letter of the 3d of this month;—and will, if possible, avail myself of your invitation to be at Monticello the day before the first meeting of the visitors, on the 29th instant.
I am very sorry. I cannot have the pleasure of spending a night with you, on my way home;—my time and the stages, I must necessarily make, will not allow of it—
