Th Jefferson to G. Wythe
    I thank you sincerely for your book. I shall read it with great pleasure & profit, & I needed something the reading of which would refresh my law memory.
    My collection of acts of assembly are in a very chaotic state. Insomuch that I have not had the courage to attempt to arrange them since my return home. As soon as this is done, I shall send the printed acts to be bound in Richmond after that it will be more easy to consult them, & probably I may be able to engage some young man in Charlottsville to copy acts for those who need them for hire. I have nobody living with me who could do it, & I am [become?] too long, with the […?] & too much attached to the plough to do it myself. I live on my horse from an early breakfast to a late dinner, & very often after that till dark. This occasions me to be in great […] in my farm work. Adieu with sincere affection.
Monticello Apr. 18. 95.
