Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Francis Walker Gilmer, 26 December 1824

Richmond 26th Decr 1824.

Dear Sir.

I arrived here on saturday after a very fatiguing journey from New York, staying two days in Baltimore, & as many in Norfolk. I did not write to you after receiving your last letter because I hoped to see you before this.

I find myself so weak & so much exhausted by the Steam boats, that I think it imprudent to try the stages to charlottesville. as soon however as I can bear the journey I shall have the pleasure to see you at Monticello.

our books & apparatus have arrived at Baltimore.

yours most truly

F. W. Gilmer
