Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Francis Walker Gilmer, 24 January 1826

Farmington 24 Jany ’26

Dear Sir.

I am glad to hear you are so well. My health is such that I can only say I have denied every body. I could not talk with you two minutes without injury. Moreover I am forbidden to go down a high pair of stairs.

When I can hold a conversation & leave my room, I shall still be proud of the honour you now offer me.


F W Gilmer
