As far as my browser can tell, the word nullification appears exactly 0 times in the whole of the page. Perhaps you can provide a little more detail regarding the passage you are referring to?

Try READING not a browser.

Try providing better search criteria for the item you wish us to view. Perhaps a short exert ...

Seems to me the content of the link you provided does not say what you think it says, though this might be a starting point.

References to Kentucky in the book linked in the OP:

Your people of Kentucky are like mosquitos, and try to destroy the red men. The red men are like mosquitos also, and try to injure the people of Kentucky.

[...]

Yet the Kentuckians take my lands, eat my stock, steal my horses, kill my game, and abuse our persons. [...] Do not let the Kentuckians take my lands nor injure me, but give me a line to them to let me alone.

[...]

We fear the Kentuckians. They are headstrong, and do us great wrong.

[...]

All the produce of the western parts of Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, and Louisiana, goes down the river Mississippi to New Orleans.

obviously he doesn't realize he has a cookie set in his browser that brings up a small section and doesn't know his link is to hundreds of pages, that or he is intentionally being a troll. If the latter everyone should put him in their twit filter.

I clicked on ID'S link and saw the writings Of Jefferson and a big ass index to all the letters he wrote.
However ID you could have named the persons you wanted us to read. I dont have time to read all those letters.

I suspect it's something else, that ID has read something Jefferson wrote, and believes it to be on the page he linked. Instead he used a link to something other than what he intended, and it's easier for him to suggest that we're the ones not smart enough to understand what he's referring to than it is for him to check the link.

Troll

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers.


None of that applies.

Since you don't want to read and learn along the way; I provided you with KEY SEARCH WORDS for what I am telling you.

Can somebody quote my previous comments so that ID might understand that his provision of key words is not helping? As it is, his posturing does appear to be inflammatory, he's accusing us of having no desire to read, when, if truth be told, some of us want to read what he thinks he's referenced rather than what he's actually linked.

ETA link added in ID's post. Not that it helps us find what he was referring to in the OP, the new link is to a wikipedia page.

Be careful I.D. you say it is a letter to his grandson. So that would be someone with the surname Eppes or Randolph.

In the index of the nearly 500 page document you linked to, there are no letters to anybody by those names.

Now find the document you think you linked and post the correct link.

Or issue an apology right now or you will be red buttoned again.

If he didn't have me blocked he'd know why he owes everybody else on this thread an apology.
