Extract from Thomas Jefferson to William Branch Giles
|Monticello Apr. 27. 95.|
I am become more firmly fixt to the glebe. if you visit me as a farmer, it must be as a condisciple: for I am but a learner; an eager one indeed but yet desperate, being too old now to learn a new art. however I am as much delighted & occupied with it as if I was the greatest adept.
