Philadelphia, to Governor Telfair by Thomas Jefferson( )

Concerning the issue of runaway slaves from Georgia taking refuge in Florida; expressing his hope that the Governor of Florida "will execute with good faith the orders of his sovereign to prevent the future reception within his province of slaves flying from the United States. how far he may think himself authorised to give up those who have taken refuge there heretofore, is another question. I observe that the orders he announced to have recieved say nothing of the past. it is probably therefore that an application from us to give them retrospective effect, may require his asking new orders from his court;" speculating on how worthwhile that would be and to what effect; informing him that the "President will be at Augusta in the course of the tour in which he is now engaged, you will have an opportunity of explaining to him the extent of the losses complained of, & how far they could probably be recovered, even were the dispositions of your neighbors favourable to the recovery, & what those dispositions may actually be."
