Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Nathaniel Macon, 24 March 1826

Monto Mar. 24. 26.

Dear Sir

My grandson Th: Jefferson Randolph, the bearer of this letter on a journey to the North, will pass 2. or 3. days perhaps in Washington. I cannot permit him to do this without presenting him to a friend of so long standing, whom I consider as the strictest of our models of genuine republicanism. let him be able to say when you are gone but not forgotten that he had seen Nathanl Macon on whose tomb will be written Ultimus Romanonem. I only ask you to give him a hearty shake of the hand on my acct as well as his, assuring you he merits it as a man & citizen to which I will add my unceasing affection to yourself
