    "Jefferson had and affinity with Condorcet that stemmed from sharing the same democratic convictions enhanced by a common faith in the principle of perfectibility. And, like Jefferson's, Condorcet's ideas on ownership favoured the development of the concept of representative democracy, reinforced by the belief that a good administration would accelerate the distribution of property. "Our republic", Condorcet wrote in his last letter to Jefferson (December 1792), which criticized Lafayette's more moderate tendencies, "founded like yours on reason, on the laws of nature, on equality, must be your true ally, e should be nothing less than a single people, we have the same interests, and above all the one of destroying all anti-natural institutions"." (p.88)

    "Jefferson had a deep admiration for his philosophe friend throughout his remaining years. Although his laicism was distant from Condorcet's materialism, he appreciated his moral rigour, placing Condorcet's Esquisse alongside Locke's Two Treatise of Government among the classic texts of morality." (p.89)
