Extract from Thomas Jefferson to Joseph C. Cabell
|Monticello Jan. 22. 20.|
if our legislature does not heartily push our University we must send our children for education to Kentucky or Cambridge. the latter will return them to us fanatics & tories, the former will keep them to add to their population if however we are to go a begging any where for our education, I would rather it should be to kentucky than any other state because she has more of the flavor of the old cask than any other.
