Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Edward Tiffin, 13 January 1808

Washington January 13th. 1808


applications have been made to me, to interfere in the internal concerns of the Indianna Territory (I presume because, when that Territory formed a part of the North western I had acted in an official capacity) but I certainly feel no disposition to intermeddle with their public affairs, farther than from my knowledge of the characters of some of the petitioners. I have thought is a duty, and which I hope you will pardon of troubling you with the inclosed communication which embraces the whole of the reasons for their wishes

with great respect and regard I am Sir Your obt Servt

Edward Tiffin

DNA: RG 59—LAR—Letters of Application and Recommendation.
