Th: Jefferson returns to mr Rodney his thanks for the drawings of Madison’s & Amen’s caves, which he is glad to recieve; for altho within 25. miles, he has never seen the new cave. he knows nothing of Burr’s trial but from the newspapers, which exhibit strange scenes indeed. it is impossible Congress should not take up that subject. he salutes mr Rodney affectionately.
