James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Thomas Jefferson, 26 September 1807

Monticello Sept. 26. 07.

Dear Sir

Health & weather permitting I shall set out on Wednesday without fail. If I can get off early enough I will be with you by half after three, supposed your dining hour, but knowing how difficult it is to clear out from home at any given hour, if I find I cannot be with you at half past three I shall dine at Gordons’, & beg not to be waited for. Receive for yourself & Mrs. Madison my affectionate salutations.

Th. Jefferson
