Monticello Apr. 10. 28.
My search among the papers here, has proved equally ineffectual. I shall see Mr Gilmer to-day, however; and, ascertaining from him where his late uncle’s papers are, obtain that in question with as little delay as possible.
I was sorry to learn, on further enquiry, that the report concerning Mr Wirtembaker is unfounded: he certainly remains, I am told, during the next session. Perhaps, however, the prospect of his leaving at the end of that period, may prove sufficient for my purpose.
We are all well, except old Mrs Marks who has long been afflicted with a tumour of a cancerous nature; and unite in affectionate bon-jour to Mrs Madison & yourself.
