Extract from Thomas Jefferson to Joseph C. Cabell

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.
