Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Robert Smith, 12 December 1806

Dec. 12. 1806


From an Officer of the Navy residing at Charleston S.C. who had my permission to make a voyage in a Merchant Vessel, I have just received a letter dated Charleston Nov. 29. 1806 which states that “the only situations to be had here at present are in the African Trade”—

I give you this intimation as an indication of the present dispositions of S. Carolina—


Rt Smith
