Extract from Thomas Jefferson to William Johnson

I recieved by mr Mitchell your letter of Sep. 20. and the favor of the Benni seed, Egyptian grass and the Acacia seeds ... all of these articles are highly acceptable. they bring nourishment to my hobby horse: for my occupations at present are neither in reading nor writing. the culture of the earth in the garden, orchard & farms engage my whole attention.
