Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Henry Dearborn, 8 February 1809

Febry. 8th. 1809—


I think you may say to Col. Duane, that he will not be called on duty from the vicinity of Philadelphia for several months at least, unless some unforeseen emergency occurs, and that in the course of a few months he will be better able to decide on the expediency or inexpediency of resigning.

Yours with respect

H Dearborn
