Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to John Davis, 8 September 1807

Monticello Sep. 8. 07.

Th Jefferson thanks mr Davis for the Latin pamphlet he has been so kind as to send him. the intimacy it shews with the beauties of that language is not the less valuable because it is rare. it is to those models we are indebted for the superiority of our taste over the nations of Asia and Africa. he salutes mr Davis with respect.
