Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to George Hay, 11 October 1807

Washington Oct. 11. 07.

Dear Sir

As I understand by the newspapers that the examination of the witnesses in Burr’s case & that of the other persons accused is closed, I must sollicit as early a communication as possible of the proceedings & evidence. Congress being so near meeting, and a copy being to be made out so that each house may have one, it is evident we shall have no time to spare. if your copy for us is not wholly ready, perhaps you could send it by peace-meal as it is ready, which would enable us to be forwarding it in the same way. I salute you with great esteem & respect.

Th: Jefferson
