Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Philip Reed, 5 September 1807

Kent County Maryland 5th. Sept. 1807

Dear Sir

By a reference to my letter of last Spring you will see that it was Rufus Easton, of whom I spoke, as having a probable knowledge of the movements of Mr. Burr. By some means a mistake has happened, and, as I am enformed, a subpoena has been Issued for me tho’ I have not seen it—I have sent [on] to Colo. Hay to correct the error.

I never saw Mr. Burr except once and that in the Senate Chamber of the U. States, and I am persuaded I am among the last persons in the U. States [to] whom he would have ventured to have communicated his machinations—I have the Honor to be with high Consideration. Your mo obedt Sevt

Phil. Reed
