27th Feb. 1807
I have referred the Marble Statue case to the Comptroller who will write to the Collector. Whether the duties can now be legally reduced I do not know.
The former San Domingo act expires to morrow. I wrote to the collectors that the continuing act would certainly be a law before that day. It is therefore important that it should be signed to day.
Respectfully Your obedt. Servt
