Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James Wilkinson, 23 June 1808

June 23. 1808


It has been imputed to me that pending the Agitations in the Western Country, occasion’d by Mr. Burr’s Projects, I did denounce many eminent Persons to You in a Letter, or Letters, which have not been published—being conscious that this like a thousand other Rumours, fabricated by my Enemies for my Injury, is void of foundation—I shall thank You Sir for such answer to this Note, as may establish the Truth, & do me Justice in this particular.

With perfect Respect I am Sir Yr. Obedt. Servt

Ja: WilKinson
