Did Jefferson's close friends and family call him Tom or was he addressed by all as Thomas?

I’ve seen Tom, Thom (I think), and Thomas though most written records tend to err on the formal side. Anyone want to provide examples for this of informal, given name references?

A pair of green-tinted spectacles is on display in the Monticello Visitors Center. These are believed to have belonged to Thomas Jefferson, although we do not know precisely what he used them for. According to Silvio Bedini, tinted glasses first appeared around 1810. They were not typically used as sunglasses as we might think of them, but “to improve the vision out of doors.”

why is he not depicted wearing these in every portrait

Somebody with art skills please rectify this horrible oversight.

Happy birthday Mr. Jefferson

The mod is flying from India to France today and so can’t post anything in honor of this day, so why not hit up the submit box with your favorites and I’ll share those next weekend to spread out the Jefferson love?
