Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Thomas McAuley, 14 June 1819

Monticello June 14. 19.

Sir

Your favor of May 19. has been recieved, but of the subject it respects I know nothing. I have heard of the Alpha, Phi, Beta and Kappa society, but never understood either it’s location or object. when I was a student of Wm & Mary college of this state there existed a society called the F. H. C. society, confined to the number of six students only, of which I was a member, but it had no useful object. nor do I know whether it now exists. Accept my salutations and assurances of respect.
