Wise words from TJ as we head to November 8...

This election had me thinking of a little guidance written by Thomas Jefferson about his hated cousin and political rival, John Randolph of Roanoke (who I found out yesterday is a many-removed cousin of my own):

[C]aution to all honest and prudent men, to sacrifice a little of self-confidence and to go with their friends although they sometimes think they are going wrong.
— Thomas Jefferson to William Duane, 25 July 1811, https://www.loc.gov/resource/mtj1.045_0452_0453/?sp=2
