Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James O. Morse, 11 April 1823

Cherry Valley N. Y. April 11. 1823.


As by common consent you are regarded as the Patriarch, of the Democratic Republican family; a number of your republican Fellow Citizens in the interiour of the State of New York, feel a strong desire to know whether you consider Mr John Quincy Adams as a member of the Republican party in the United States? Your answer would only be shewn to a few of your old Republican Friends unless you consented to have it made public.

I have the honour to be with great respect Your Obt Servant

James O. Morse
