Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John C. Calhoun, 22 November 1824

Washington 22d Novr 1824

Dear Sir,

I cannot make known to you in a more satisfactory manner the wish of mr Emmett in relation to his son, than by transmitting to you his letter, herewith enclosed.

I am not personally acquainted with young mr Emmett, but from the recommendation of gentlemen of science, and on whose judgement I can rely, I feel persuaded, that his qualifications for the professorship, for which he applies, are of the most respectable character.

With the highest regard I am your ob. Sr.

J. C. Calhoun
