    Description

    Thomas Jefferson Autograph Letter Signed "Th: Jefferson." One page, 7.25" x 7", Monticello, Virginia, August 27th, 1808. This letter was written to Caesar A. Rodney, the nephew Declaration of Independence Signer, Caesar Rodney. Rodney was currently serving as United States Attorney General under Jefferson. The letter reads in part, "…I see no reason against your giving your opinion, in favor of General Allen, to him to be used with British Government. The only doubt I ever entertained on it was that which you mention respecting his bail, and I have not yet seen my way out of that…We have not received one interesting word from Genl. Armstrong or Mr. Pickney since our separation. I salute you with affection and respect..."
    The letter is in very fine condition; usual folds are present; signature still bold and dark. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
