Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Albert Gallatin, 31 December 1807

Vale. Dec. 31. 07.

Th:J. to mr Gallatin

Mr. Elliot (whose speech I saw not till last night) has so pointedly denied our account of the battle of the Lyman sea or lake, that it would seem necessary to have published in the Nat. Intelligr. an Extract from the work from which it was taken. you were kind enough to suggest the transaction to me (for I had forgotten it) and I think you took it from the Annual Register. can you furnish me with the volume, & I will have the extract made.

NHi: Papers of Albert Gallatin.
