To the PEOPLE of the UNITED
Bv adverting ro the date it will be
seen that the above letter was written
immediately after Mr. Ogden’s nei:o
ciation with Mx Burr, and a letter
had been received at Wafhingron
from a leading federal character in this
cirv, derailing the terms of that nego
gocianon. It will alf> been let n that
the letter is of a highly confidential
nature, and that confederations of pe
culiar delicacy prevented its being
made public to the world. Nothing *•
but tlw importance of the flibjctff, and
the bold unblufhiog denial of the ne
gociation by Mr. Burr, could have
induced the gentleman who it,
to permit i f s publication. Nor was
rhe writer’s consent to give it pub
licity, obtained until a letter W3s
written to hirn by a friend of ours for
that purpose, ami to which the fol
lowing is an answer.
tc sth OHober, 1802.
<l De a r Si r,
u l was absent on n v;fir and did
u not return kill this ..morn:after
the .yv.j'A had clokd. I pcrctixc ike
‘*• tmpa tance of the requeff which is
<f made of you, but I am under re
'l ffraints of peculiar delicacy,
c< Our intelligent friends would I
(t think be firisfied with my permit
!l ting the fjbffancc of my confiden
c< tial communication to you, to be
Cf made known. The critical circurn
“ fiances under whi v ch I gave it to
£c you, have juffified me to myfelf.—
Ct To give the cxaH of my letter
ff may involve me in very furious per
£f fonal inconveniences j but if you
u have reason to expeH coilufion be-
£ ‘ tv/cen Burr and G den, and that
tl engagements of secrecy have been
<c made by others, you had then better
“ auttiorife a literal publication, and
“in case Ogden cenies the sass as
‘‘ flared therein, you are authorifed
c * by me to give the name cf , as
“ the high federal char after I alluded
£c ro, as the writer of the letter to
£f Wafiningron, and on which mine
tc was predicated. I made a memo
c< randum at the time. I thought I
£t had taken the dare, but I well re
£f colicH it was in January. If
<£ should prev'aricare, ai.d this he
££ comes necessary, it would confur.n
££ with my vv.fhes tliat you fignify to
C£ , my name.
I am able fully to effablirh the
££ fa6t. I can hardly think he will
£< lend his weight of reputation to
£< countenance such extreme profiiga
£t cy. But we ought to suppose no
£i thing impoflible when v.e confider
“ the ffrong motives of party policy
£: which may exiil for diiguifing the
£ ‘ rranfadlion.”
The public will now be anxious to
know the name of the <c bi/b federal
££ character” w u o wrote the letter
from this city, to an influential mem
ber of congrcls, detailing the negoti
ation. That name is ffill a rnyftery.
It is eminently due co the gentleman
co whom the two letters above were
addressed, and who has kindly put
copies of them into our pofi’effion, to
fay that he has not communicated to
us the name of the ££ high federal cha
raHer.” Yet we are in pofieffion of a
variety of faHs, derived from a multi
plicity of correrff sources, which do
more than enable us to conje&urr,
with confiedrable accuracy, the name
