Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Thomas Newton, 18 November 1808

Washington Novemb: 18. 1808


From a beleif that Dr Upshaw’s professional talents eminently qualify him for Hospital or Regimental Surgeon, and from a persuation, I might add confidence, that he will ably perform the duties appertaining to that station.—I take the liberty of recommending him for that appointment.

I cannot forbear to mention a nother highly valuable qualification in favor of Dr Upshaw—He is a sound, intelligent and inflexible republican.

With sentiments of the greatest esteem and respect I remains yrs. & & &

Tho Newton
