Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from C. Downing, 9 November 1824

Novr 9. 1824

My grateful acknowligements to Mr Jefferson for his politeness but independent of the rain, the duty assigned me to superintend the publication of our Friday’s Feast, renders it impossible to accept the invitation to do that nearest the hearts of all, to see & to know him, we are proud to honor.

With sentiments of the highest respect I remain Sir

C. Downing
