Monticello Sep. 10. 24.
I have duly recieved your favor of the 4th covering a specimen of wheat, for which be pleased to accept my thanks. withdrawn by age from all agricultural attentions, I have made the most advantageous disposition of it by consigning it to the agricultural society of my county who will give it a fair trial. I am gratified with this occasion of adding to my thanks the assurances of my continued and affectionate friendship & respect
