      It all started with James Thomson Callender, an impecunious and disreputable journalist, a drunkard, and an unprincipled blackmailer.1 Disappointed in his application to President Jefferson for the job of Postmaster for Richmond, and the money it would bring, he began to attack his former benefactor. He wrote in the Richmond Recorder. The following poem first appeared on J , in the Port Folio, a Federalist literary paper published in version below was reprinted in the Richmond Recorder on September 1, , on the same page as James Thomson Callender 's article accusing Thomas Jefferson of having children by his slave Sally (presumably Sally Hemings).

    The hard-core five-chapter nucleus of Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings: An American Controversy focuses on people: Madison Hemings, James Thomson Callender, the Randolphs and the Carrs, Jefferson, and Sally Hemings. Gordon-Reed begins with an analysis of the key document from what we called in episode 4 Jefferson's "black" family, Madison. James Thomson Callender ( – J ) was a political pamphleteer and journalist whose writing was controversial in his native Scotland and the United contemporary reputation was as a "scandalmonger", due to the content of some of his reporting, which overshadowed the political content — some modern scholars note Callender's writings in favor of democracy.

Few, however, equaled The Wasp of Hudson, New York, in vitriol: “He [Jefferson] read the book and from that book inferred that Callender was an object of charity,” wrote its editor, Harry Croswell, in response to Jefferson’s feeble excuse for funding Callender’s malicious endeavors.

Heeding Thomas Leiper’s parting injunction, Callender never returned (Durey, Callender description begins Michael Durey, “With the Hammer of Truth”: James Thomson Callender and America’s Early National Heroes, Charlottesville, description ends, ; Gazette of the United States, 13 July ).
