To Thomas Ritchie

Monticello Dec. 7. 18.

Dear Sir

It is long since I have ceased to read any newspaper but yours, and I shall continue to read no other. withdrawing therefore from all others I pray you to have me discontinued as a subscriber to the Compiler. should the legislature have the report of the University Commissioners printed in a pamphlet be so good as to send me half a dozen copies. mr Gibson as usual will pay you for these as well as my newspaper account. I salute you with friendship & respect

Th: Jefferson

PoC (DLC); on verso of reused address cover of John Steele to TJ, 13 Aug. 1818; at foot of text: “Mr Ritchie”; endorsed by TJ, with his additional notation: “Newspapers.”

yours: the Richmond Enquirer.
