Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Walter Jones, 31 January 1809

Jany. 31st. 1809

Dear Sir.

How far the complaint made in the inclosed Letter, may either admit or deserve a remedy, I cannot presume to say: but as it comes from a man of great Probity, patriotism & firmness and probably expresses the Sentiments of a considerable class of officers, as well as his own, I have deemed it best to submit it your perusal, with my request that it may be returned to yours Dear Sir with

great Truth & Respect
