Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Albert Gallatin, 22 February 1809

Feb. 22. 09.

Th:J. to mr Gallatin.

Have you obtained the name & character of the son of Made. Bonneville? I believe there remains a single vacancy of a Cadet.   it seems extremely difficult to say what had best be done as to militia at N. London. I am assured that if I designate a militia officer there, the legislature now meeting, will immediately remove him. perhaps the proper way to ensure an effectual enforcement would be to remove Huntington: but I know too little of him to judge correctly of that measure. affectte. salutns.
