Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from David M. Randolph, 17 October 1823

Ashton 17 October 1823

Dear Sir,

The most extravagant estimate requires something less than thirty Dollars for the expences you woud remunerate; you therefore will have the goodness to excuse my returning to you, Twenty. With genial truth I seize this occasion to express the gratification I derive from a restoration of social harmony with yourself and family; and, I pray you to believe, that as it always was a source of Affectionate sensibilities, so is it now, almost the exclusive charm to a continuance of Life and Hope—

your respecful friend

D M Randolph
