Background on the Callender/Jefferson connection...



Item # 648967

March 23, 1801

GAZETTE OF THE UNITED STATES & DAILY ADVERTISER, Philadelphia, March 23, 1801 

* President Thomas Jefferson
* James T. Callender


Page 2 has a small & curious item: "We hear that the President of the United States has remitted the remainder of the sentence of James Thompson Callender, convicted last summer of a libel..." with a bit more. It was Callender whom Jefferson sought out to attack John Adams in the 1800 election--won by Jefferson (and reason for remitting his sentence?)--but when he was denied a postmaster position by Jefferson he turned on him and reported on Jefferson's alleged children by his slave concubine Sally Hemings.
Four pages, very nice condition.
