Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Page, 22 June 1807

Richmond June 22d. 1807

My dear Sir

Accept my sincere thanks for your repeated acts of kindness towards me, & for the offer you make in your favor of the 10th. instant. As secrecy is required, as yet, I can procure no information respecting the comparative Emoluments, & labor & confinement of the two offices: the moment I can, I will thankfully communicate to you the result of my determination. At present however from what I can judge, your Applicants appear too sanguine in their Expectation of the vacancy, as the present Incumbent is better, & expects a Cure by a Voyage he has contemplated for some time past—

Mrs. Page unites with me Sir in presenting our warmest thanks to you for your friendly attention & our sincerest wishes for your health & Happiness.

I am with the highest respect & Esteem dear Sir your obedient Servant

John Page
