A letter by Thomas Jefferson that talks about the fate of Poplar Forest after his death is up for sale - but hold your checkbook.

To purchase the piece of American history you'll have to shell out $35,000.

In the 1805 letter, Jefferson writes his friend and estate manager about his wish to have Poplar Forest appraised, so he could begin parceling off parts of the property to his grandchildren.

Poplar Forest is now a historic site near Lynchburg. This is the first time this letter has ever been up for sale.
