I am to acknowledge the receipt of your letter to the President of the United States, communicating the collection of a sum of money for the relief of our Captive brethren in Algiers. The sensibility, displayed by those, who have contributed, is intitled to great respect.

It is impossible to recollect the sufferings of our captive brethren in algiers, without feeling a high respect for the exertions, made by the manager of the Boston Theatre, for their relief.

It has since become necessary, to decide the case of the ship William, of Glasgow, which was said to have been captured by a French cruizer, within the protection of our coast.

The report, which appeared in the Newspapers the other day, from a Committee to the Senate, on the Bill for advancing money to the French minister, has given me considerable uneasiness.

What I chiefly allude to, is,...

Some time ago I mentioned to the President the necessity of attending to the act, granting a million of Dollars for foreign intercourse; it being always understood, that this large vote contemplated our negociation with the Dey of Algiers.
