From Library Journal:

Editor McLaughlin has collected and briefly comments upon unsolicited letters from the American public to Jefferson during his presidency (1801-09). Uncovering this material while researching his recent Jefferson and Monticello: The Biography of a Builder ( LJ 4/15/88; an LJ "Best Book of 1988"), McLaughlin contends that these previously unpublished letters reflect the social history of the laboring class. He divides the book into sections about politics, patronage, literature, debt and justice, inventions, health, and letters from youth, women, lunatics, and lovers. Though he has unearthed some fascinating letters, McLaughlin provides little historical context and uncritically equates the unkown letter writers with the laboring class, which he never defines. Recommended for scholars in the field.

Jefferson's careful filing of the letters that he received as President made possible this collection, which reveals something of the diverse beliefs and yearnings of his America. BOMC and History Book Club selections in cloth. Illustrations.
