Feb. 5. 1806.
I think the District atty. of N. Y. should be immediately instructed to investigate the expedition of the Leander, & of every person concerned in it; and to learn how it has happened that the officers of the government at that place should have paid no attention: & given no information of it while going on. On the report of the Atty. to us we may decide what shall be done.
