Th: Jefferson to mr Madison.

I send you some papers from the Secretary of Louisiana for your office; also a letter from Sanford to mr Gallatin for your perusal & then to be reinclosed to mr Gallatin. altho’ I have not heard of your arrival at home, yet I trust that you are there. I expect to set out for Bedford tomorrow or very shortly after, & shall be absent 10. days. This may account for delays of answers to your communications should any occur. after my return I shall hope to have the pleasure of seeing mrs Madison & yourself here. Accept my affectionate salutations & assurances of constant esteem.
