From Thomas Jefferson to William Campbell Preston, 13 November 1822

Monticello Nov. 13. 22.

Dear Sir

At the same time with your favor on the subject of the late Colo Wm Campbell I recieved one from mr John Campbell of Richmond, and to him, as nearest at hand I addressed my answer. observing to him that writing was painful to me from a disabled wrist, I prayed him to consider the answer as intended for you as well as himself. I have since that however got it copied by another hand and inclose it with the assurance of my high esteem & respect.
