Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 15 February 1809

15 Feb. 1809

Van Pradelles register is dead

Persons recommended

Grymes dist. atty. with 600 dollars only

Robertson Secy. 2000 dollars & Commr.


Lewis judge & Commisr.


I think that Grymes is entitled to the preference; for if Robertson be appointed & Grymes made Commr. in his place, it will be a mere temporary appointmt. and Robertson would have two better permanent offices. The Register & Dist. Atty. united offices will be only 1100 dollars.
