Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to William O. Allen, 20 April 1810

To William O. Allen

Monticello Apr. 20. 10.


I have duly recieved your favor of Feb. 9. with the copy of the publication called Love & Madness which it inclosed, & beg leave to return you my thanks for this mark of your attention. when I collected the proofs of the genuineness of Logan’s speech I did not know of this publication containing it. I afterwards recieved it from a friend. but that which you send me is of an edition older by several years than the one I had before recieved, & proving so much more strongly it’s earlier publication than in the Notes on Virginia. with my acknolegements for this kindness be pleased to accept the assurances of my respects.

Th: Jefferson
