Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from R. Potter, Jr., 9 August 1823

Cumberland, R.I. August 9, 1823.


I take the liberty to forward to you two numbers of my Papers, which, if found unworthy of perusal, will not much enhance your waste-paper surplusage. This enclosure has been ventured from an impression that yours are in accordance with the sentiments of enlightened and liberal Christianity; to the promotion of which the Gospel Palladium is professedly devoted. Will you deign to accept the humble offering?

With profound respect for your illustrious character, I have the honour to be, &c.

R. Potter, Jr.
