Letter text

G' Wythe to T' Jefferson

After the seventh decad 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 to write were painfull, 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. 10 of april, 1800.
