Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Caesar Augustus Rodney, 1 March 1805

Mar 1. 1805

Honored & Dear Sir,

The enclosed is from a Republican of Sussex County in our State. He has long been a surveyor there, & is very well acquainted with that business. This has called his attention to the subject of the magnet of which he attempts to give a theory, which he requested me to submit to your consideration. He has been much prosecuted in our State & tho in very moderate circumstances has been compelled to pay heavy damages for speaking the truth of an unprincipled Federalist.

Yours Very Sincerely

C. A. Rodney
