Thomas Jefferson to Joseph Milligan, 8 September 1816

To Joseph Milligan

Monticello Sep. 8. 16.

You must excuse me, dear Sir, if I trouble you with my inexpressible anxieties about the delay of publication of mr Tracy’s book, as I hear nothing of it’s commencement altho’ you assured me it should be begun the 4th of July. mr Tracy’s complaints of me give me a right to complain highly of mr Duane, and now turn to you. pray let me hear from you, and say only what I may depend will be done, & communicate to him as my justification. Accept my best wishes & respects.

Th: Jefferson

PoC (DLC); on recto of reused address cover of José Corrêa da Serra to TJ, 16 June 1816; at foot of text: “Mr Joseph Millegan”; endorsed by TJ.
