To Thomas Jefferson from Charles Geirs, 24 February 1807

Baltimore February 24 1807—

Dear Sir

I am all most to old to write but I think it my duty as a True american to give you my decided Oppinion conserning all this noise about little Burr I am now 79 years of age and have Served Seven long years in the late contest with great britain and hold my Self Still in readyness Should my County be in danger which I think is not the case at present. I am also one of those that admire your administration I dont like Burr nor never did but my dear Sir I have it from good authority directly—from the State of Ohio and the western Country that our great general Wilkison is as deep in the mud as little Burr is in the mire which will Soon be proved and my friend also writes me the people in general disaprove very much of Wilkisons conduct and do realy Say that of the two Wilkisons is the greatest rouges and that he is in Spanish pay therefore my dear friend as a gaurdian of the people watch this impostor as well as the little divel and I hope you will be rewarded for it in heaven

Your Sincerely

Charles Geirs
