Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Archibald Thweatt, 26 December 1821

Wilkinsonville post Office Chesterfield County 26. Decr 1821

Dear Sir

While I take liberties with letters of a friend without consulting him, and without any other sanction than the motive which governs me, I fear I force myself in upon you, with a very offensive kind of intrusion: I hope the same pure motive, will secure to me your generosity and forgiveness.—only see what you can do for our country at this Crisis!   a favorable word from you would secure the amendments—and to use the language of the illustrious author of the inclosed letter “save again our beloved confederacy.”—Excuse me

God preserve you

Archibald Thweatt
