13th Octr. 1806
I do not recollect my dear Sir that, when you observed it would convenience you to have 100 or 150 acres of one of the farms for Sale near your estate, I offered to accommodate you, in case I should purchase it: therefore, permit me now to assure you that it will give me pleasure if I shall have it in my power to do so.
This day, glancing my eye at the list of letters in the post office at Washington, incerted in the National Intelligencer, I perceived one directed to me—will you have the goodness to send a Servant for it, & forward it by post? Mr Digges will hand you the postage.
I purpose in a few days to set out towards Charlotteville and will be obliged by your sending me the letter you so kindly promised
I have the honor, dear Sir, to greet you with salutations of esteem & respect.
