Thomas Jefferson

A quote from Thomas Jefferson

Do not mistake me. I am not advocating slavery. I am not justifying the wrongs we have committed on a foreign people... On the contrary, there is nothing I would not sacrifice to a practicable plan of abolishing every vestige of this moral and political depravity.

— to Thomas Cooper [1814]
