Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson

I forgot to point it out in my previous posts (1, 2, 3, 4), but you can read the entire Jefferson-Coles correspondence online.

Coles’ first letter to Jefferson: July 31, 1814

Jeffferson’s answer: August 25, 1814

And Coles’ second letter: September 26, 1814

The two men had written each other before, but Coles never wrote him again.
