Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from William Armistead Burwell, 18 February 1807

febuay 18th 1807.

I have laid your letter before Mr. R. & had a conversation with him; He feels the same love & respect for you he always did, they are not impaird—& never can be—he left the house to prevent the possibility of such a thing—I shall have another conversation with him, & shall make any arrangements, which will more effectually guard your happiness against that event—I have fully participated in your feelings, & am equally happy, that change which gives me equal pleasure with yourself.

May god preserve your happiness during life—

W A Burwell
