Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Joseph Perkins, 8 April 1826

Monto Apr. 8. 26.


I recd your letter of Feb. 8. and with it the specimens of engraving referred to only 3. days ago. Where they have loitered so long I know not. our Univty has not yet been long enough in opern to have subjects advanced to maturity for taking degrees. your specimens have a degree of merit well worthy of considn when the subject is taken up, and shall certainly then be duly attended to. but for this I can name no definite time. with these assurances be pleased to accept that of my due respect

Th: J.
