Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval

"But a short time elapsed after the death of the great reformer of the Jewish religion, before his principles were departed from by those who professed to be his special servants, and perverted into an engine for enslaving mankind, and aggrandizing their oppressors in Church and State."

Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, January 19, 1810

Scanned letter at The Library of Congress
