Treasury Department 18th April 1806
I have the honor to enclose the copy of a letter from the collector of Passamaquoddy and memorial of some inhabitants there together with a New Brunswick Gazette relative thereto.
How far reclamations respecting the condimned vessel may be proper, will of course be taken into consideration. But as it may be necessary to give some immediate instructions to the Collector on the subject of what he may consider as within the jurisdiction of the United States, I beg some directions thereon.
I have the honor to be with the highest respect Sir Your obedient Servant
