Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Craven Peyton, 14 November 1819

Monticello Nov. 14.19.

Dear Sir

The last year was the only one of my life that I ever had pork to spare. this year as usual we have hardly enough for our enormously large family, being equally deficient in the carcases as well as the means of fattening. I should have been very happy to have supplied you had it been otherwise.

Yours affectionately

Th: Jefferson
