Date August 6, 1800
Author Name Winthrop Sargent (primary) Location: Mississippi Territory
Recipient Name Samuel Hodgdon (primary) Location: Philadelphia
Summary Sargent sent a letter to Colonel Pickering as Secretary of State before he knew he was out of office. Fortunately he marked it private before committing it to the postmaster in Philadelphia. The Justice in charge of the Grand Jury has denied the principal allegation against Sargent which was that he assumed to aggress the people. The Justices formally attested to same but the judgement is omitted in the enclosures for want of room. The papers should be forwarded to Sargent's sister and to Colonel Pickering.
