Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Henry Dearborn, 6 September 1807

Monticello Sep. 6. 07.

Dear Sir

I inclose you the letters of mr Granger & mr J. Nicholas, by the latter of which you will see that an Indian rupture in the neighborhood of Detroit becomes more probable if it has not already taken place. I see in it no cause for changing the opinion given in mine of Aug. 28. but on the contrary strong reason for hastening the measures therein recommended. we must make ever memorable examples of the tribe or tribes, which shall have taken up the hatchet. I salute you with affection & respect

Th: Jefferson
