In my hurry yesterday to be ready for a waiting Mail, I overlooked your question when I should return to Washington? I have not fixed on the precise time, but it will probably be not sooner nor more than a few days later than the 1st. of October. If you have a trip there in view why not extend it, bringing Mrs. Gallatin with you, to Virginia? Cordial regards NHi : Papers of Albert Gallatin.
29 October 1812. In accordance with an act of 3 Mar. 1809, directs “the sum of Five hundred thousand Dollars, of the fund appropriated for the pay of the Army, be applied to that of the Clothing Department.” RC (owned by Albert C. Wilkerson, Richmond, Va., 1961). 1 p.; in a clerk’s hand, signed by JM. See U.S. Statutes at Large The Public Statutes at Large of the United States of America … (17...
I have recd your favor of the acquainting me with your proposed trip to N. York. I had entered into the same train of ideas with yours as to the probable state of Jackson’s situation and wishes. It is difficult at the same time to reconcile them with the tenor of Cannings last Conversation with Pinkney; especially as Erskine’s defensive explanations accompanying his arrangement, must have...
I have recd. your favor of the 5th. inclosing one from Mr. Aster. Whatever personal confidence may be due to him, or public advantage promised by his projected arrangement with the Russian Fur Company, there is an obvious difficulty in furnishing the official patronage which he wishes; whether the arrangement be regarded as of a public or of a private character. In the former, it would require...
It is determined finally to associate Mr. Bayard in the Mission Extraordinary to St. Petersburg. The Secretary of State informs him of it by this mail. It cannot fail to be useful, if you can see him on your way thro’ Wilmington, ascertain his sentiments on the occasion, and hasten his preparations if he should be willing to undertake the service. We hope the vessel will sail in 14 days at...
For perusal & to be returned. Why not prohibit altogether fine Cottons & Woolens, which we do not want—& which in fact are not imported from any Country other than G.B. unless bought there from G.B. Such a total prohibition of these & some other Articles perhaps, wd. render a partial repeal of the Non Impn. Act, more operative, than the act at present is, or will be, under the new arts for...
I now forward the paper on the Batture promised in my last. It appears by Mr. Pinkney’s last letter that Brown the fugitive was in London & had engaged his attention. As no proceeding, answerg our purpose, can be had agst. him, other than a suit for recovering the debt, will it not be proper to forward to Mr. P. whatever documents may sustain the action, particularly his official Bond; or an...
Mr. Smith has had an official conversation with Mr. Jackson, and is to see him again today at One OC. He is to be with me in the mean time at ½ after 10, when I wish you to join the consultation. RC ( NHi : Gallatin Papers). Docketed by Gallatin. For conjectural date, see n. 1. The only Thursday falling between 3 Oct., when British minister Francis James Jackson presented his credentials to...
I have not yet made the remittance to Mr. Baring, and cannot do it at the present moment without an increased sacrifice. I would prefer making it however notwithstanding the hope of a Change for the better ere long, to giving Mr. B any ground for complaint. Be so good as to say whether you consider the delay as in the least dissatisfactory or disadvantageous to him, and I will take my measures...
A nephew of J. M. with the approbation of his father, is desirous of finishing a mercantile education, begun at Fredericksburg about a year & a half ago, in the Counting House of some respectable Merchant in N. York. The youth is about 19 or 20 years of age, believed to be of amiable temper and of virtuous habits. His father is willing to conform to the conditions usual in such cases. J. M....
