"I was always happiest when I could direct the reading of a promising young man."

— Thomas Jefferson, as portrayed by Clay S. Jenkinson

Here at the Jefferson Hour, we love our listener mail. We try to answer as many letters as possible because they help us to open up new avenues of discourse. This week, we devote another episode to answering listener questions. Subjects covered include civil discourse, the virtues of France, Jefferson’s suggested reading of the classics and John Adam’s midnight appointments.

Find this episode, along with further recommended reading, on the blog.
