Dear sir

I have taken the liberty of presenting to your notice my young friend Mr Wills who has been engaged in copying the M.S.S. of my late grandfather Mr Jefferson, and is now procuring subscribers for their publication. I have ventured to take this liberty, from the knowledge of the friendship which existed between my grandfather and yourself, when fellow laborers in the political struggles which terminated in the reestablishment, and confirmation, of our republican doctrines

The work itself is published, first, for the benefit of my grandfathers creditors and secondly for the bene his family having passed to them my right. The bearer is instructed to communicate to yourself confidentially any information upon the subject which you might desire and I must beg for him your countenance and patronage in the object he has in view with the assurance that his own worth will merits any attention he may recieve. With sentiments of the highest respect

your obednt servant
