4124. JEFFERSON (Thomas), Portrait.—

I am duly sensible of the honor proposed
of giving to my portrait a place among the
benefactors of our nation, and of the establishment
of West Point in particular. * * * Mr. Sully, I fear, however, will consider the
trouble of the journey[to Monticello], and
the employment of his fine pencil, as illy
bestowed on an atomy of 78.—
To Jared Mansfield. Washington ed. vii, 203.
(M. 1821)
