G. Wythe to T. Jefferson
    After the seventh decad [sic] of my years began i learned to write with the left hand, as you may see by this specimen, and that with ease although slowly. yet if I write were painful, I should, before this time, have answered your letter of 28 of february: but i have been endeavouring to recollect what little of parliamentary procedings i formerly knew, and find myself unable to give information on the questions which you propounded. adieu, my best friend. 1- of april, 1800.
