The Correspondence of Thomas Jefferson
FRANCE / REVOLUTION
I am looking ardently to the completion of the glorious work in which
your country is engaged [the French Revolution]. I view the general
condition of Europe as hanging on the success or failure of France.
Having set such an example of philosophical arrangement within, I hope
it will be extended without your limits also, to your dependents and
to your friends in every part of the earth.
to Condorct, 30 August 1791
