Th: Jefferson presents his salutations to his friend mr Rodney and not knowing by what post office a letter will find mr Copes, he asks the favor of mr Rodney to be the bearer of his thanks to mr Copes for his communication on the theory of Magnetism & his apology for not addressing them directly to him.    he is sure also that mr Rodney can testify to him that unremitting attentions requisite...
I return you the inclosed with thanks for the communication. we had before heard of the aggression & that the captors & captured were retaken by our military & the former safely lodged in jail for trial. How deeply to be regretted, my dear Sir, is the bitter schism which has lately split the friends of republicanism into two adverse sections in Pensylvania! it holds up a melancholy prospect to...
I return you the letter you were so good as to inclose me with thanks for the communication. the real occurrences at Natchitoches & the Sabine had, as usual, swelled greatly on their way to Natches. the 500. horse were really but 20. who retired without opposition on Capt Turner’s requisition. the official reports of Majr. Porter & Capt Turner assure us of these facts. Some unexpected...
Your favor of the 3d. is recieved on the subject of a pardon to the Poulsons & Shad. it has been an invariable rule with me never to pardon but on the recommendation of the judges who sat on the trial or of one of them & the Attorney of the district. from this I have never departed in a single instance; and were it to be departed from, it would let loose the power of pardon to be exercised...
Th: Jefferson presents his friendly salutations to mr Rodney. he found on his arrival here yesterday his two letters of Sep. 21. & 24. and doubts not mr Rodney has recieved the pardon from the office of State. he returns him the 2. letters of judge Rodney as requested & thanks him for the communication of them. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
I have not sooner been able to acknolege the reciept of your favors of the 21st. & 29th. ult. and to thank you for the communication of the letters they covered, & which are now re-inclosed. the designs of our Cataline are as real as they are romantic. but the parallel he has selected from history for the model of his own course corresponds but by halves. it is true in it’s principal...
Keep the contents of this letter, if you please, to yourself. I yesterday nominated you to the Senate as Attorney General of the US. whither it will be confirmed will rest with them, & they often subject nominations to great delay. my only object in mentioning it to you is that you may be making all the provisional arrangements necessary for an immediate visit to this place if you should...

The constitution giving to the Supreme court exclusive jurisdn in all cases affecting Ambassadors Etc.— cannot the within mentioned case be removed into that court? when there, a Nolle Prosequi may be entered. for it is indignant that a man remaining here in defiance, and himself entering the field of the newspapers in the most insolent stile, should have the counter-insolencies punished. DeHi .
Will mr Rodney be so good as to meet the heads of departments here this morning at 11. aclock? Privately owned.
Burr, as a prisoner under a guard of 10. men, passed Coweta 800. miles from here, on the 3d. inst. at 30. miles a day he will be at Cartersville on James river on Thursday the 26th. there is not therefore one moment to be lost in deciding and acting on these questions. 1. must he not be ordered from Cartersville down to Richmond for trial? 2. should not an express go off instantly to meet him...
Th: Jefferson returns to mr Rodney judge Rodney’s letters with thanks for the communication. he has entire confidence that the Atty General will spare no attention or effort to have all the evidence which exists produced in the developement of the late conspiracy. should not Ashley, when at Richmond, have been subpoenaed as a Witness?   the case of the Attorney and Marshal of the territories...
Mr. Hay desires the letter of Genl. Wilkinson specified in the inclosed paper from Burr’s counsel, & in the extract from my message. it was in the bundle of papers I gave you, which bundle I supposed you had left with mr Hay. if you did not, will you be so good as to forward to me immediately this particular letter of Oct. 21. that I may judge whether all, or how much of it may be...
Yours of the 16th. was recieved last night. however much we may feel the want of you in the daily correspondence which of necessity falls upon us from Richmond, yet we much more regret the cause of detention, of the sufficiency of which no parent can doubt. it was unlucky that when I wrote to you for Genl. Wilkinson’s letter of Oct. 21. I did not recollect that there were two of that date, &...
I very much suspect that the date of the letter quoted in the message is quoted wrong. the contents are correctly stated & well remembered. I believe it will be necessary for you to send me the whole bundle, unless you can readily lay your hand on the letter substantially agreeing with the message, & on Genl. Wilkinson’s letter to Genl. Smith of the same import. CSmH : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
Can mr Rodney inform Th:J. whether Genl. Bowie and mr Wilkinson (are these their titles?) are still in town & where? he wishes to invite them to dine to-day. PHi .
Th: Jefferson returns to mr Rodney his thanks for the drawings of Madison’s & Amen’s caves, which he is glad to recieve; for altho within 25. miles, he has never seen the new cave. he knows nothing of Burr’s trial but from the newspapers, which exhibit strange scenes indeed. it is impossible Congress should not take up that subject. he salutes mr Rodney affectionately. NHi .
I think I remember that on the question whether the court of one district could have an attachment executed in another to compel the attendance of a witness, you satisfied us it could not. will you have the goodness to give me a formal opinion on that question with as little delay as convenient? I presume it could no more enforce the giving a deposition. an existing case may render necessary a...
Th:J. incloses a paper to mr Rodney to do in it what may be necessary, which he presumes will be, according to the decisions of the judge, nothing! he proposes to be in Washington Octob. 3. affectionate salutations. ViU .
Your letters of Sep. 15. & Oct. 1. have been duly recieved & I sincerely congratulate you on the addition to your family announced in the last. the good old book speaking of children says ‘happy is the man who hath his quiver full of them.’ I hope mrs Rodney is doing well, in which case, & whenever her situation will admit your coming on without uneasiness. The approaching convention of...
I inclose you the message, and pray you to suggest, on a separate paper, such alterations as you shall think for the better either in the matter or style. I must ask the return of it this evening because mr Coles has to make 4. copies, & will have only two days to do it in. it comes to you thus late, as time was necessary for it to go through the hands of the other gentlemen. Affectte....
Burr, Blannerhasset, S. Swartwout & Martin are here. can & should the two first be arrested & sent to Kentucky for treason, & the two last for Misdemeanors, committed by the one in Orleans, the other in Maryland? be so good as to satisfy yourself on these points, & if affirmatively, on your informing me so, I will call a consultation. affte. salutations. CSmH : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
A consultation is necessary to-day, and as notice could not be given last night, the hour must depend on mr Gallatin’s arrival at his office, he being generally the latest & most uncertain as to his hour. will you be so good as to be within reach at that time? Catalog--Gallery of History.

Th: Jefferson returns the inclosed to mr Rodney with thanks for the communication. it is very evident that our embargo, added to the exclusions from the Continent will be most heavily felt in England and Ireland. Liverpool is remonstrating & endeavoring to get the other ports into motion. yet the bill confirming the orders of council is ordered to a 3d. reading, which shews it will pass....
It is with great reluctance I break in on the tranquility & happiness you are enjoying in the bosom of your family, by suggesting the necessity of your presence here. immediately on the arrival of mr Gallatin, whom we expect every hour, consultations will be to be held on several matters of great importance, in which we shall be happy to have your aid. add to this that some matters of...

Your favor of the 13th. is recieved. I see no reason against your giving your opinion, in favor of General Allen, to him to be used with the British government. the only doubt I ever entertained on it was that which you mention respecting his bail, and I have not yet seen my way out of that.   I inclose you the letter of a M. Mouesay, whose case seems to be as hard a one as I have known. I...
