Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Harry Innes, 25 November 1806

Frankfort. Novr. 25th. 1806

Dr Sir,

I have taken the liberty of inclosing to you a Pamphlet written on the causes & effects which produced the seperation of Kentucky from Virginia.

On reading the Narrative you will readily discover the object which induced it to be written. I flatter myself it will produce two events—1st. it will preserve facts important to the historian who shall hereafter write a complete history of the U. States of America & 2ndly. That it will refute the base calumnies which have been published against certain characters in this State as the exculpatory evidence is of a nature uncontravertable.

That the Pamphlet may produce in your mind favorable conclusions towards the accused is the sincere wish of

Dear Sir with great respect your mo. ob. Servt.

Harry Innes
