Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from “A Lover of Republicanism,” [before 6 May 1801]

From “A Lover of Republicanism”

[before 6 May 1801]

Truely enlightened Patriot,

For your Country’s sake act as you wish & be not guided by a Party who call themselves Republicans!   Your Countryman who now writes is thoughroughly convinced that there is nothing viscious in your good Heart & earnestly prays that you may possess stability which many want.

Confide not in others.

A lover of Republicanism.

RC (DLC); undated; endorsed by TJ as received 6 May and so recorded in SJL.
