"Thomas Jefferson to Wythe, 26 February 1793." Image from the Library of Congress, The Thomas Jefferson Papers.

Note: Jefferson made two copies of this letter. The first copy is a press copy that he made from the one he sent to Wythe. The second copy is one that he re-wrote in a neater hand from the press copy. The first press copy is illegible in many places, not just to the eyes of Wythepedia, but, evidently, to the eyes of Jefferson himself.

Letter text, 26 February 1787
