Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to Joseph Dougherty, 23 March 1817

To Joseph Dougherty

Monticello Mar. 23. 17.

Dear Sir

your letter of the 10th did not come to hand until the 20th instant. on examining my files I find that the letter to mr Lambert was an exact copy of that to Genl Varnum and all the others to whom I wrote on that occasion. I have therefore recopied it and addressed it to mr Lambert, which I now inclose, and return you the copy of that to Genl Varnum. wishing you success in your application I salute you with friendship & attachment.

Th: Jefferson

PoC (DLC); on verso of reused address cover of Richard Rush to TJ, 19 Feb. 1817; at foot of text: “Mr Joseph Dougherty”; endorsed by TJ. Enclosure: two copies of TJ’s Circular to Certain Republican Senators, 19 Sept. 1811.
