Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Thomas Munroe, 3 July 1804

3 July [1804]

Matthias Ryan } The Overseers say the 17 persons here mentioned are all those employed at the Presidents House, who behaved improperly on the 2d. July (yesterday) by riotously parading about the streets; the three first named were the leaders it is said, and the seven following were next in fault—the rest joined in the mob & walked about the City—but Matthias Ryan was the principal exciter, and was most reprehensible in his behavior—Several were induced by this gang to leave the Capitol it seems; John Hazle & Joseph Thomas were the only two who behaved very culpably there—they returned to work to day, but have been dismissed—several Americans some free blacks & slaves both at the Capitol & Presidents Ho refused to join the malcontents.—
