Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Albert Gallatin, 19 December 1807

Dec. 19. 07.

Th:J. to mr Gallatin

I imagine that Barnwell sees his own case with the egoism natural to all men, but increased by a temper a little querulous. but he is a man of sense & is said to be a very good man, & I believe worth our keeping: and it is probable that such an explanation as is given by mr. Sheldon, with some kind words, shewing him that we value him, will satisfy both his reason & self love. Affectte. salutns
