From Thomas Jefferson to Albert Gallatin, 20 April 1805

Apr. 20. 05.

Th: J. to mr Gallatin

I wish that when Muse was appointed to Tappahanoc we had known that Brett Randolph would accept of it. he is a very worthy & needy man, & one for whom it would be a good act to do something.

Colo. Lyon’s applications have been so many & so unsuccessful that, all other qualifications being equal, I should like to prefer the person he recommends: if you know nothing against him. in that case if you will furnish me his title I will direct a commission.

Saunders’s recommendation is returned, approved.

Baldwin’s commission is directed to be made out.

The establishment of Sacket’s harbour & appointment of Sacket himself is approved.

Colo. Newton’s commission is directed to be made out.

On the Western appointments generally we will converse on some occasion.
