Letter from the Sandwich Papers
The Declaration was drafted by Thomas Jefferson in June 1776, drawing upon ideas developed by European philosophers about individual liberty. The declaration states that â”œÂ½Ã”Ã»Ãªâ”¬Ã±all men are created equalâ”œÂ½Ã”Ã»Ãªâ”œÃ¿, before listing the complaints against the King that were to justify the breaking of the ties between the colonies and Great Britain. This handwritten copy of the Declaration of Independence was sent to the Earl of Sandwich, First Lord of the Admiralty, and was one of the first reports of American independence to reach Britain.
