Octer. 17th 1805
Dr. Turner has repeatedly applied to the Treasury, since his claim was barred by the act of limitations, or rather by his not applying in the manner & time provided by that act. I enclose one of his letters in which is a memorandum of the Auditor stating why the claim cannot be admitted, and copy of my answer to his last letter. On the 12th Septer., the application of Mr. Maury in behalf of—Foster for exemption of duties was submitted to you in a letter from the Treasury Department. Your decision has not been communicated; and the case remains suspended.
With great respect Your obt. Sert.
