Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Nicholas Biddle, 20 February 1822

Monticello Feb. 20 22.

Th: Jefferson returns thanks to mr Biddle for his very able and instructive address to an Agricultural audience, and is pleased to see the stores of science so happily blended with practice. it will surely produce a salutary excitement among our farmers and especially at a moment when the habitual Cannibalism of Europe promises a demand for bread with their blood. he salutes mr Biddle with assurances of his highest esteem & respect.
