From Albert Gallatin
Jan 29th 1802
The papers which accompany this contain all the documents & the whole information which I can obtain in this department on the subject of the Barbary powers. The rough draft of the letter to the Secretary of State, & the general sketch marked (AA) exhibit the substance of the whole. As soon as the papers are returned they may be transmitted officially to the Depart. of State, as the letter to the Secretary is the only paper to be transcribed—
Respectfully submitted by
RC (DLC); at foot of text: “The President of the United States”; endorsed by TJ as received from the Treasury Department on 29 Jan. and “Barbary Powers” and so recorded in SJL at 30 Jan. Enclosures: see TJ to the Senate and the House of Representatives, 16 Feb. 1802, Enclosure No. 2.
