Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Robert Smith, 18 November 1805

Monday Morning


Mr Gallatin has abandoned the idea of desiring the collectors to deposit in the hands of the Navy agents monies to be applied to the payment of the crews of the expected frigates—and has recommended the mode stated in the return letter addressed to him. This form has, I understand, been pursued in similar cases—

It is necessary that the enclosed letter from me to mr Gallatin be sent to his Office early this morning—


Rt Smith
