A Dinner at Monticello by Lucretia Ramsey Bishko, (April 1980), E332.2 .A5 1980A
Scope and Contents
John S. Skinner, journalist, agriculturist, and creator of the first successful American farm journal, The American Farmer, visited Monticello in 1820. In his subsequent recollections, he records that Jefferson was entertaining as usual, but on that particular occasion he was somewhat irrational in his conversation and the dinner menu (millet, one of Jefferson’s favorites) was less than satisfactory, precipitating indigestion.
