Extract from Martin Van Buren to the Citizens of Philadelphia

It is not, I assure you, possible that any one can cherish a higher respect for the memory of Mr Jefferson or be more sincerely disposed to do it honor than myself. He was the undisputed founder of our political School; & whilst we sincerely respect his principles & in good faith, observe his precepts, we have nothing to fear from any assaults that can be made upon it.
