Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from William Plumer, 21 January 1822

Washington January 21st 1822

Dear sir,

I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your favour of the 13th instant on the subject of my Agricultural Address.

I perceive from your letter that you supposed yourself writing to my father. It is perhaps vanity, as much as a sense of justice, which prompts me to disclaim the praise thus intended for another. I cannot however suffer the opportunity which it affords me of again writing you to escape, without informing you of the very great esteem & respect which my father often expresses of your character & conduct.

I remain very respectfully Your obedient servant

William Plumer Jr
