To Thomas Jefferson from James Oldham, 9 March 1806

Richmond March 9th. 06.


This day your faver of the 23rd. Febry. came to hande, my being absent from Richmond has bin the cause of not receiveing it in due Time: I am but a few howrs ariv’d of a Journey from Samuel J: Cabbells, from his many pressing invitations. I considerd it would be as well to waite on him; he has for a considerable Time expres’d a desire for me to Builde some aditions to his present dwelling. Your dores are now all in redyness except plaiceing in the pannells & the sashes for the S.E. piaza are compleate: the dores Shall be also complete in a few days. Adue and may Heaven bless You.

Your Obt. Sevt.

Jams Oldham
