Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from George Cooke, 17 June 1826

Richmond June 17th 1826.

Dear Sir

I am upon the eve of my departure for Europe in prosecution of my professional Studies as an artist, and Shall Visit Italy, France and England—Neither my acquaintance with you nor any distinction I have acquired entitles me to the Smallest claim on your Kindness, but as a Virginian it would be peculiarly flattering to carry Some memorial that I was not entirely unknown to you—A letter to any person in Europe would be most thankfully acknowledged

I am very Respectfully Yr. Hue Sert

Geo: Cooke
