To Thomas Jefferson from Thomas Herttell, 11 November 1819

New York Novr 11th 1819—

Respected Sir—

Though I have not the pleasure of a personal acquaintance with you, my knowledge of your exalted character leads me to believe you will pardon the freedom I have taken to request your acceptance of the accompanying pamphlet, entitled an expose of the causes of intemperate drinking and the means by which it may be obviated.” should it here after be deemed worthy of a second edition, I will avail myself of the benefit of any observations you may think proper to make on the subject of which it treats—

That you may be blessed with long life and perfect health and happiness is the sincere wish

Venerable Sir of your’s respectfully

Tho:s Herttell
