I am later this year than usual in expressing to you my willingness to retain for the next year the negroes I have heretofore hired of yourself & miss Sarah Dangerfield, because the letter of mr Hooe of Nov. 18. of the last year assured me it would be your desire to continue them with me as long as I might have occasion for them. I have counted therefore on retaining them, with the exception...
To the Electors of the county of Ontario in the State of New York. The wrongs which we have sustained, fellow citizens, from the belligerent powers of Europe, & of which you have taken so just a view in your address, recived by me on the 27th. of the last month, could not fail to excite in the bosoms of freemen the sentiments of high indignation expressed by you. the love of peace had long...
Jefferson wrote to me a few days ago to know whether he had ever had the small pox, & added that till he could learn that fact he kept himself from the Anatomical dissections by advice of Dr. Wistar. I wrote him that I thought I recollected that he & Anne were inoculated in Richmond under your eye, but that I was not quite certain. will you be so good as to give the answer by return of post...

P.S. on reconsideration. the use of the words ‘temporary’ & ‘permanent’ in the 6th. page applied to the embargo, may give countenance to the federal charge & clamour, as if we had really contemplated it as a permanent measure: and altho’ the idea as here explained, is just, yet they...
Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to mr William Ray and his thanks for the book & poetical epistle he has been so kind as to send him. a Narrative of the expedition & loss of the Philadelphia, of the sufferings of her crew, & exploits of our brave Tars before Tripoli, cannot be read by an American but with great interest. he should have read it however with more satisfaction had he found...
I nominate the several persons named in the inclosed list, signed by the Secretary at War, to the several commands therein proposed under the act of Apr. 12. 1808. for raising for a limited time an additional military force. DNA : RG 46—Records of the U.S. Senate.
The favor of your letter by mr Cruger was recieved with great pleasure, & I have further to acknolege that of making him known to me. it would have been a great gratification, had the occasion permitted me to be useful to you in giving the license sollicited by mr Cruger. but the time for doing that expired some months ago, after having been duly announced in the public papers. since that no...
I have prepared the two principal answers to the Indians, & pray you to read them attentively & to suggest any alterations you would advise. in that to the Poughtewatamy, it is difficult to go exactly as far in restraining him as we can without committing ourselves absolutely to oppose force, which we must not do. I do not think I yet understand sufficiently the evidence against the claim of...
Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to Mr. Neale and sends him the papers requested in his letter of Dec. 4. they had been sent to the offices, & the time taken to find them has occasioned the delay which has incurred. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
