Author: Jefferson, Thomas, 1743-1826
Abstract: Thanks Maury for agreeing to tutor his nephew, Peter Carr; explains that "no American should come to Europe under 30 years of age" for they will be spoiled by the "hollow, unmeaning manners of Europe"; his nephew's education must proceed rapidly, for "every moment [may] be valued in money"; Spanish must be substituted for Italian for him to learn; encloses a list of books he has ordered for his nephew.
