Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Mercer, 18 May 1807

Fredericksburg. May—18th. 1807.


This morning I received the enclosed papers, and a Letter from mr. Skipwith, in which he says, “The President and his Majesty the Emperor, I am persuaded, will save me from becoming a victim to malice and intrigue. My great difficulty continues to be to get my history to their ears.”

I have the honor to be with great Respect, Sir, your obt. Servt.

John Mercer.
