Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Caesar Augustus Rodney, 5 February 1807

Feb. 5. 07.

Th: J. to mr Rodney

The constitution giving to the Supreme court exclusive jurisdn in all cases affecting Ambassadors Etc.— cannot the within mentioned case be removed into that court? when there, a Nolle Prosequi may be entered. for it is indignant that a man remaining here in defiance, and himself entering the field of the newspapers in the most insolent stile, should have the counter-insolencies punished.
