Extract from Thomas Jefferson to Harry Innes
|Philadelphia Mar. 7. 1791.|
I receive with pleasure this recognition & renewal of our former acquaintance, and shall be happy to continue it by an exchange of epistolary communications. your’s to me will be always welcome; your first gives me information in the line of Natural history, & the second (not yet recieved) promises political news. the first is my passion, the last my duty, and therefore both desireable.
