May 6, 1805
I enclose Mr Crowninshield’s & Collector Lincoln’s letters respecting a keeper of lighthouses. If you approve of George Day’s appointment, please to signify it. I also enclose De Witt Clinton’s letter & one from Sanford stating that Swartwout has made a partial payment—also letters from Mr Fen & Lieut. Govr. Broome recommending Tallmage as a judge. From Sanford as answer has yet been received on that subject but may be daily expected. To B. Livingston I still feel averse.
With great respect & attachment Your obedt. Servt.
