From Thomas Jefferson to James Cutbush, 15 July 1823

Monto July 15. 23

I thank you, Sir, for the copy you have been so kind as to send me of your Lecture on the adulteration of food and other articles. I think it a work of great utility and such as ought to be in every family. common murders are committed on individuals only, but these wretches slay us by wholesale & with impunity. with my thanks accept the assurance of my great esteem & respect
