Thomas Jefferson to William Logan, 21 September 1819

To William Logan

Monticello Sep. 21. 19.

Th: Jefferson presents his thanks to mr Logan and the ’76 Association for the communication of mr Condy’s eloquent Oration on the 4th of July last, and to the orator himself he is peculiarly indebted for the indulgence with which he has viewed the part he has acted in the public affairs of our country. the annual consecration of a day to the memory of the principles of ’76 cannot fail to lengthen the period of their practical effect a[nd of th]e liberty and prosperity flowing from them.

PoC (MoSHi: TJC-BC); on verso of a reused address cover to Nelson Barksdale; dateline at foot of text; mutilated at seal; endorsed by TJ, with his additional bracketed notation: “’76 assocn,” and so recorded (with no opening apostrophe) in SJL.
