Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to George Morgan, 19 September 1806

Monticello Sep 19. 06.


Your favor of Aug. 29. came to hand on the 15th. inst. I thank you for the information, which claims the more attention as it coincides with what has been learned from other quarters. your situation and the knolege you already possess would probably put it in your power to trace the footsteps of this enterprise on the public peace with more effect than any other with whom I could communicate. whatever zeal you might think proper to use in this pursuit, would be used in fulfilment of the duties of a good citizen, and any communications you may be so good as to make to me on the subject shall be thankfully received, and so made use of as not to commit you any further than yourself may think proper to express. a knowledge of the persons who may reject, as well as of those who may accept parricide propositions will be peculiarly useful. Accept my salutations & assurances of esteem & respect.
