Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Vicomte de Pastey, 6 August 1804

[6 Aug. 1804]


I have for three years past been a witness of the infinite good the American People have happily enjoyed. Fortunate, and unoidable result of a wise and impartial Administration!

I most humbly beg leave to dedicate to your Excellency the triffling production of an hour’s leisure: it is a feeble, but sincere hommage I pay, with the most profound respect, to those distinguished vertues, which an admiring World venerates in silence.

Deign to accept of the assurances of the highest Esteem of your most humbe. & obt Servant

Le vicomte de Pastey L.D.
