Pamphlet reprinting of letters originally published in The Recorder of Pace & Callender. After his release from the Richmond jail for his June 1800 seditious libel conviction for his polemical The Prospect Before Us (1800.019), Callender fell out with Jefferson and Virginia's Republican leaders over their refusal to compensate him for his imprisonment with public offices and/or financial subsidies; these letters were part of his initial contributions to Pace's struggling Recorder in early to mid-1801; herein, Callender attacked his former partner in partisan publishing, then public printer Meriwether Jones, over his "self-interested" conduct of that office and of his semi-official newspaper The Examiner.
