Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Page, 20 August 1807

Richmond Augt. 20th. 1807

My dear Sir

Last night your favor of the 17th. instant from Monticello inclosing the Commission for Mr. Bolling Robinson came to Hand, which I immediately delivered to his Father—and to-day he presented it to his Son who had arrived here from Petersburg. I did not know, when I first mentioned this Gentleman to you, that his Name was Thomas Bolling Robertson I mention this, because in your letter & Note, you call him Bolling Robinson.

I hope you enjoy good health, and found your Daughter, Mr. Randolph & Family, & all your relations & Friends well & happy. Mrs. Page unites with me in presenting our best respects to you.

I am with very great respect & Esteem dear Sir Your most obedt. Servant

John Page
