Thomas Jefferson Papers

[From Thomas Jefferson to John Stockdale, 13 August 1786]

To John Stockdale

[Paris, 13 Aug. 1786. An entry in SJL under this date reads: “Stockdale J. inclosing Dr. Priestly’s pamphlet.” Neither the letter nor the pamphlet has been found; the latter may have been one of Priestley’s annual defenses of unitarianism, and it was possibly a French translation of the pamphlet; TJ received Stockdale’s letter of 8 Aug. on 13 Aug.]
