Thomas Jefferson

A quote from Thomas Jefferson

Where the disease [slavery] is most deeply seated, there it will be slowest in eradication. In the northern States, it was merely superficial and easily corrected. In the southern, it is incorporated with the whole system and requires time, patience, and perseverance in the curative process.

— Letter to David Barrow [May 1st, 1815]
