Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from William F. Gray, 26 March 1819

Fredericksburg March 26. 1819


The bearer, Mr Thos Smith, has applied to me for an introduction to you; but not having ever had that honour myself, it may be considered too great a liberty for me to take.—He will no doubt carry with him a much better introduction than my name can give him. I will only say that he has for some time lived my neighbor, and has approved himself a sober and industrious citizen; and in every respect, as far as I have seen or heard is a man of correct conduct. He is considered a good painter.

With much respect Sir, Your Obt sert

Wm F. Gray
