Washington Mar. 14. 07.
Th: Jefferson returns his thanks to mr Lord for the pamphlet he has been so kind as to send him, presenting a view of all those who have been honoured by the favorable notice of Harvard college. it is a work which, while gratifying to those particularly named, cannot fail to excite an useful emulation in the minds of those who may wish to be enrolled in it. he thanks mr Lord for the mark of his personal attention, & salutes him with respect.
