I lost a Jefferson quote that I sorely need. The gist of it was that the Federalists constantly used the slavery issue to bash the South, but never made a reasonable proposal to actually abolish slavery.

I would like for you to include the day and date that TJ returned from France, I think he was received by every slave in Albemarle County with tears and praise and adoration. They detached the horses from TJs carriage and pulled it up the hill themselves, then carried him on their shoulders to the house, each of them vying for the opportunity to touch him. Quite a testament to the love those who were enslaved to him felt. It says something about his treatment of them and their mutual relationship. TJ purchased extra vegetables from them, he paid them for anything unsavory which he wanted them to do. He issued protein (fish) and cornmeal and vegetables to them. He clothed them. He built special housing for them, not just shacks. He gave the elderly paid retirement on the estate. Before transferring anyone, he asked if they wished it. He kept husbands, wives and children together. He brought in a physician when they were ill. For example, he took James Hemings to France and apprenticed him to a French chef, then contracted to give him his freedom once he had taught the kitchen staff his trade, and when this was done, as promised, he released him with a cash bonus to step out on his own. Thomas, James, Sally, Polly and Patsy arrived back at Monticello a day or two before Christmas, 1789. Thank you.

Jefferson's public political beliefs are inextricably intertwined with his very private religious beliefs, that overlap when a state was involved with religion or interfering with the natural rights of Nature's God, e.g. the Calvinist Congregational Clergy of Massachusetts and Connecticut and their issues with free speech and the free exercise of religion. When Jefferson was arguing for the freedom of a slave in the matter of Howell v. Netherland, on the ground that the slave's grandmother was white he made a reference to the law of nature [god] and said, "we are all born free." Jefferson's statement that "all men are created equal" was primarily aimed at the Congregational Clergy and their beliefs in predestination. Jefferson did not recognize a class that was born privileged, whether is was Christian or White.
