From Thomas Jefferson to Henry Dearborn, 25 October 1807

Oct. 25. 07

Th:J. to Genl. Dearborne

Will you write to Govr. Cabell or the proper officer & give the orders for the discharge of the militia & measures to be taken thereon.

will you also give orders to Capt. McComb at Charleston to attend mr Doyley’s experiment, & indeed to try the experiment at the public expence. I have written to Doyley that you would give such orders. as his plan is to set fire to sails & rigging, I presume some old sails can be got & set up on poles, which will sufficiently shew the effect of mr D’s method
