Frankfort. Novr. 25th. 1806
I have taken the liberty of inclosing to you a Pamphlet written on the causes & effects which produced the seperation of Kentucky from Virginia.
On reading the Narrative you will readily discover the object which induced it to be written. I flatter myself it will produce two events—1st. it will preserve facts important to the historian who shall hereafter write a complete history of the U. States of America & 2ndly. That it will refute the base calumnies which have been published against certain characters in this State as the exculpatory evidence is of a nature uncontravertable.
That the Pamphlet may produce in your mind favorable conclusions towards the accused is the sincere wish of
Dear Sir with great respect your mo. ob. Servt.
