From Thomas Jefferson to Ellen Wayles Randolph Coolidge, 3 May 1808

Washington May 3. 08.

My dear Ellen

As you insist I shall write you one more letter before my departure this is to inform you that altho’ I have not entirely abandoned the hope of setting out on the 5th. yet I think it more probable I shall be detained to the 6th. so that if I do not catch you in bed on Sunday, expect it on Monday.

Your’s affectionately

Th: Jefferson
