Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Richard Brown, 23 September 1807

Louisville Ky. Septr. 23rd 1807.


I take the liberty of enclosing you a copy of my inaugural dissertation, which in some interval of leisure from business you may not find it disagreable to peruse.

I had the honour of calling on you last july and presenting you a letter from Dr Benjamin Rush. You were good enough at that time to give me some advice with respect to a proper place for establishing myself in the practice of my profession. Agreably to that advice I have descended the Ohio, and settled in this town in preference to proceedings as far as Natchez or New Orleans. I flatter myself I shall have no reason to regret the choice.

With much respect I am Sir yr obt Servt.

Richard Brown
