Dear Ploome:: I initially read it in Michael Oren's book Power, Faith, and Fantasy: America in the Middle East: 1776 to the Present by Michael Oren 2007, but it is also at many sites on the internet. It appears the conversation occurred between Adja on the one hand, and Thomas Jefferson and John Adams on the other. Jefferson was Ambassdor to France and Adams was Ambassador to Great Britain.

It was recorded in a letter from Jefferson to John Jay. Wikipedia cites it as:"Thomas Jefferson and John Adams-John Jay, March 28, 1786, Boyd, Julian, et al (eds), The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, v.9, p.358" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbary_Pirates
