Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Hannah Briggs, 17 December 1804

Brookeville 17th. of the 12th. Month 1804

Will the President please to accept my most grateful acknowledgements, for his kind favor of the 5th. Instant; It was indeed acceptable inteligence to a mind that had suffered under the most gloomy apprehensions—it being more than three months since I received a letter from my dear Husband! may I dare hope, or ask, for the like favor in future, should’st thou acquire any information, either favorable, or otherwise of him? I am with respect thy friend

Hannah Briggs.
