I have just recd. your favor of the 4th. I congratulate yourself and Mrs. Gallatin on your safe arrival, and under circumstances which must console her so much for your prolonged absence. I was not unprepared for a heavy demand for expences of J. P. Todd. I thank you for your kindness in lending your responsibility; and being unable in my present situation to do better for repaying the...
I have written you several letters all of which, except one committed to your attention, letters for others. The one excepted requested an answer, and as it has not yet come to hand, and I learn that a late mail was wrecked on its passage, I am apprehensive my letter may have been in it. On the eve of my Departure therefore I repeat its contents. It remarked that I had not yet made the...
Mr. Dallas has signified to me that it being his intention not to pass another Winter in Washington, he has thought it his duty to give me an opportunity of selecting a Successor during the present session of Congress; intimating a willingness, however, to remain, if desired, in order to put the national Bank in motion. Will it be most agreeable to you, to proceed on your mission to France; or...
What are the provisions , & for what purpose ? Is it strictly regular for the Govt. to have any positive relation to a trade, in its own Vessels contrary to the Law of N? Govts. are not bound to prevent . Still a passport to protect agst. American cruisers, seems to be the minimum of interposition. The Scy. of State will decide the case; in consequence of an interview with Mr. Dashkoff. The...
I inclose a draft for $800 dollars to be a fund in your hands for J. P. Todd. He has in his own $200 more; which our estimate called for. Should the whole be judged, on a better calculation, to be deficient, be so good as to convert a draft on me into a supply of the deficiency. He sets out tomorrow morning and will be in Philada. the day after this reaches you. A blank Commission has been...
I understand that the measures taking by the Bank of the U. S. for provisionally winding up its affairs, are likely to bear hard on the other Banks, and that the evil will be increased, by the drain on the latter for paying the bonds, as they become due in the hands of the former. Would not some remedy be afforded by a distributive transfer, (which would also have a provisional reference to...

The Command of the Lakes is obviously of the greatest importance & has always so appeared. I am glad to find it not too late to have that of Ontario. There must have been some mistake as to the effort to obtain it. It does not appear that any application, such as is intimated has been made to the Navy Dept. Mr. Hamilton has much confidence in Lt. Wolsey, and says that he shall be furnished...
I have just recd. your favor of the 13th. I had proposed to set out for Virga. on friday, and am very glad to learn that you will be with us before that takes place. I expect Mr. Monroe every moment; and Mr. Pinkney being within call, I shall be able to decide with the best advantage the several important questions on hand. Previous to the acct. of the loss of Michillimackin⟨ac⟩ orders had...
