Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from William Davis Robinson, 28 December 1820

Washington December 28th 1820–


Permit me to request your acceptance of my Memoirs of the Mexican Revolution—

Should I learn that any thing therein containd, compensates you for the trouble of perusing the book, it will afford me much pleasure—

The rules of literary composition I am unacquainted with—my habits and career have afforded me only casual opportunities of making a few gleanings in the field of literature, but as I disclaim all pretensions to the character of a professional Author, I trust my fellow Citizens will overlook any inaccuracies in point of style—

Respectfully I have the honor to be Your obedt Servt

William Davis Robinson
