Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Henry Dearborn, 12 December 1808

12 Dec 1808

Sir, there being strong grounds for suspecting the Little Turtle of double dealing between us, and the British officers in upper Canada to whom he pay’d a visit a short time before he set out on his Journey to this place, it may be a question whether some allusions to his friendly feelings towards the British Govt. or to overtures from that quarter to him, may be mentioned in your Answer.—I intend to have a conversation with him this evening and shall endeavor to draw from him the motives & result of his last visit to uper Canada—I will wait on you in the morning, with the papers sent to this office.


H. Dearborn
