At the present period I feel it a bounden duty to communicate to you, every article of information, in my power. A single spark may throw a glare of light on the dark intrigues & nefarious plots now in operation. I hasten therefore to forward the enclosed, which I have just received from my father. Whatever a firm & sincere friend of the Union, in his situation, can effect in that quarter,...
I this moment received the enclosed which I hasten to transmit by the return of the mail Yours Most Sincerely DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
I had the pleasure of receiving your esteemed favor of the 19th. inst: by the mail of to day. This distinguished mark of your confidence, added to those I had before experienced, excites feelings, which I cannot express, nor shall I ever forget.

I received your favor of the 20th. inst: by the mail of this day. I shall leave this on Saturday morning in a carriage hired for the purpose & shall loose no time on my journey. I would have set off tomorrow but it was not in my power to make the necessary arrangements; & I would have taken the stage, but the duties of the office with which you have honored me, require that I should bring a...
It is of importance that every material fact relative, to the late conspiracy against the constitution and laws of the United States should be accurately ascertained.

I then determined to hire an additional pair of horses which would have enabled me to proceed in two day to Richmond. Whilst I was wating to accomplish this object & to see Mr Henderson of the Marine to give me...
I wrote to you from Dumfries last evening & as soon after, as I could get horses & a guide who knew the road, on my journey for Fredericksburg. I did not arrive there until about day, this morning, the roads were so intolerably bad. On my arrival, I found the information I had received to be pretty correct. Burr came there on Wednesday evening under a Mr. Perkins & six men. Just as they rode...
Mr. Hay this morning applied to C. justice Marshall for a warrant agt. Burr for treason which was granted. This circumstance, combined with Mr. Hay’s strong opinion that the C. justice would certainly commit Burr for treason gave me considerable expectations, that our wishes would be realized. At 12. O.Clock Burr was brought before him. We exhibited the depositions taken agt. Swartout &...
I received your note enclosing one of Capt. Truxtun’s. We this day argued the case of Burr before Marshall C.J. who will give an opinion tomorrow. Burr spoke a few minutes after his Counsel had done, & in my humble opinion much to his disadvantage. My impression is, that he will be held to bail for treason, from what fell from the C. justice, immediately after I had closed the argument. I may...
We have dispatched the Dep: Marshall of Virginia to Wood County, who will summon all the witnesses at & near Blennerhasset’s island. Mr. Madison & myself have both written to Mr. Jackson. I hope in less than three weeks to have depositions sent on from that quarter to Mr. Hay which will enable him to commit Burr for treason. From arrangements made upon consultation with the heads of...
