To Thomas Jefferson from David Hosack, 15 December 1825

New York Decr 15. 1825

Dear Sir

accompanying this note is a Discourse I lately delivered at the opening of the last session of our medical school—I wish it may have any interest for you—.

Mr Wall a distinguished artist your city informs me that you are about to appoint a Professor of Drawing in your university—I beg leave to say that Mr Wall appears to possess in an eminent degree the talents required in that station and that he is spoken of by his fellow artists in terms of high approbation—in Landscape and drawing his merits are peculiarly great.—I hope your health is improving

accept the best wishes of your respectful friend

D Hosack
