Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Philip Turpin, 14 June 1807

Washington June 14. 07.

Dear Sir

By an inconcievable want of recollection, when I recieved your brother Horatio’s letter, I misapplied his name to you, and directed the answer to ‘Dr. Horatio Turpin’, of which error I was not sensible till I recieved yours of the 10th. inst. I know not to which of you my letter of the 10th. will be sent from the post-office, but it will, I trust, answer with both the object of explaining satisfactorily my views on the subject of those letters. Accept a repetition of my salutations & assurances of constant affection.

Th: Jefferson
