S. It appears to me that the word “ those ” in the enacting part of the...
I had the honor to receive your letter of the 6th instt., and have directed the documents therein enclosed to be filed with the other papers relative to the French prize “Peggy.” The enclosed papers will show, however, that the President does not intend that any further payments should be made, out of the Treasury, on account of that vessel; and that, even in case of such payment being made,...

The Secretary of the Treasury has the honor to return to the Secretary of State Mr Pichon’s letter, and to send also sundry papers on the same subject with the remarks of the Comptroller endorsed on the same. The only objection to paying the specie part of the debt & the interest on the funded part is the demand we have against France for advances made to the Refugees of San Domingo. Those...
In the case of monies & stock claimed by Mr Pichon, being proceeds of certain loan office certificates, it is suggested by the Secy. of the Treasury that it might be proper to state to Mr Pichon, that our Government had supposed that France had agreed to assume the payment of the 15,000 dollars, & transmit him a copy of Mr Fauchet’s letter. It is the opinion of the Secy. of the Treasury that...

States. But the previous...
