Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Edmund Randolph, 16 September 1804

Richmond Sepr. 16. 1804.

E. Randolph, with best respects, to Mr. Jefferson.

Yesterday your suit with Johnson was tried; when the judge declared it to be perfectly clear in your favor, and dismissed the bill. Johnson’s counsel said, that she should make no remarks in opposition to the decree. I presume, therefore, that an appeal is not meditated. If it be so, the present result can never be varied.
