To Thomas Jefferson from Francis Peyton, 15 July 1807

Lexington 15th. July 1807.

Dear Sir,

Mr. Blennerhassett arrived here from Natches last evening: he was immediately arrested by the Marshal, and carried before judge Todd; who committed him to prison; he underwent an examination before the judge today; and was by him, ordered into the custody of the Marshal, until a direction for his removal to Richmond, could be procured from the U. States judge for this district. It is supposed he will leave this place for Richmond early next week,

I am very respectfully yr. Obt. Servt.

Francis Peyton
