To Thomas Jefferson from Wilson Cary Nicholas, 18 March 1808

Washington March 18th. 1808

My Dear Sir

I enclose you Mr. Quincy’s Speech. In the anxiety that I feel upon the subject I mentioned to you last night, I beg you to be assured I am influenced by personal considerations towards you as well as considerations of public welfare; indeed I have always considered the public weal, and your popularity as most intimately connected; perhaps in my solicitude for both I annex more importance to what I suggested than it merits, if so you will pardon it in consideration of my motives.

I am with the greatest respect your hum. Serv.

W. C. Nicholas
