Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Francis Walker Gilmer, 1 December 1825

Norfolk 1st Decr 1825

Dear Sir.

I am here looking after a mild air, and have had for eighteen days the most unpleasant weather I ever knew, at this season.

If I have strength to lecture, I shall begin on the 1st Feby. I am tired of long inactivity, and had rather die in harness than in the stable.

I found a door to connect the chamber with the study in the Corinthian pavilion, absolutely necessary to any comfort, and hope the visitors will have no objection to one’s being opened.

I hope to be with my friends in Albemarle before christmas.

yours truly &c

F. W. Gilmer
