From Thomas Jefferson to Henry Alexander Scammell Dearborn, 20 August 1824

Monticello Aug. 20. 24.

Th: Jefferson returns his thanks to mr Dearborne for the communication of the papers containing the Defence of his father. to him however no defence could be needed of a person who has ever possessed his unlimited confidence. it has served to establish radically the opinion before entertained of the degraded being who has excited this new enquiry.

Th:J. salutes mr Dearborne with respectful consideration.
