Th: Jefferson to mr Craven

Judging from the view of your fields from this place, I think you must have a great deal more corn in culture this year than the 100. acres allowed by our lease. will you be so good as to give me a statement of the quantity now in corn? also whether some of the ground now in corn has not been in corn twice before since the commencement of the lease? I tender you my best wishes.
