Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Albert Gallatin, 3 December 1807

Dec. 3. 07.

Th:J to mr Gallatin

Your proposition of yesterday has some good phases and merits consideration. I have only seen mr Madison as yet; who objects to it. another proposition which may be considered is the continuing the suspension of the present law, by an act of Congress, till the last day of the session. Affecte. salutations

what is good in this case cannot be effected. we have therefore only to find out what will be least bad.
