James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Albert Gallatin, 4 October 1802

From Albert Gallatin

Treasury Department October 4th. 1802.


I have the honor to enclose the copy of a letter from the Collector of Norfolk, and of a correspondence which has taken place between him and the British Consul at that Place, on the subject of a seaman stated to have been a deserter from a British Frigate.1 Whether it can be thought necessary to give any instruction, on that subject, to the collector, is a question which does not fall within the province of this Department. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, Sir, Your obedt. Servt.

Albert Gallatin
