25 May 1805, Treasury Department . “I beg leave to remind you that no appropriation has been made by Congress for paying the Salaries allowed by law to the Governors Secretaries & Judges of the Michigan & Louisiana territories, nor for defraying the contingent expences of the same.

§ From Albert Gallatin. 12 December 1805, treasury Department. “I have the honor to enclose an extract of a letter from James Brown Esqr. the Agent of the United States at New Orleans in relation to Land Claims.

I send the letter, which is longer than I expected, and of which I have no copy. I will, therefore want it lent again to me, when you shall have done with it, in order that I may transcribe it. The classes of american citizens in whose favor we should assume payment of french debts seem to be 1st. those whose property shall have been taken in Europe or the West Indias or elsewhere by or under...
§ From Albert Gallatin. 3 January 1806. “The Secretary of the Treasury wishes to be informed whether either Mr Erving or Mr Livingston have sent to the Department of State an account of the purchase of books for the Library of Congress.

Letter not found. 28 May 1801. Mentioned in Gallatin to JM, 29 May 1801 . Requests attested copy of Jefferson’s pardon of James T. Callender.
I had the honor to receive your letter of the 20th. ultimo, in answer to mine of the 8th. preceding. As legal questions of some nicety may result from the right of priority secured by law, to the United States, from the interest of Jeremiah Condy in the co-partnership of Jeremiah Condy & Co., and from the nature of the trust vested in the Secretary of State, permit me to request you, not to...

I met in New Jersey Capn. Crafts of the Neptune, the vessel on board of which were Martin & Ware when met by the Melampus in the Gulf of Biscay. I obtained from him the enclosed letter by which it appears that they were not impressed but deserted from the Neptune to the Melampus at Plymouth. Will it be of any use, if Capn. Crafts happens to come here, to obtain his affidavit of the facts? He...
7 December 1801, Treasury Department.

27 December 1804, Treasury Department. “I have the honor to return Mr. Wynn’s letter. It seems to me that the act supplementary to the Consular act embraces all cases of Sales; unless the words ‘and her company discharged’ should be construed as forming an exception when a vessel is stranded; on the ground that, in that case, the crew cannot properly be said to be discharged. “If it is not...
14 November 1801, Treasury Department. Encloses papers [not found] pertaining to Colonel Cambray’s claim against the U.S. The principal is payable to him or his attorney only at the treasury, upon delivery of certificates, which Cambray may send to his attorney in this country.

It seems evident from the 3d Section of the act, that the three months wages must be paid even in the case mentioned by Mr. Maury; nor could constructive instructions to the contrary be given, without affecting the rights of the seamen, who become entitled to their two months whenever they go or are put on board a vessel bound to the United States. The enclosed form, has been transmitted to...
I have the honor to transmit transcripts of the proceedings of the Circuit Court for Connecticut & of the Supreme Court in the case of the Schooner “Peggy” a French prize first acquitted in the district, then condemned in the circuit & finally acquitted by the Supreme Court.

It appears by a letter from Messrs. Baring dated 9th Augt. last that they were in advance for St. 4263.12.5. on account of the British treaty fund. This arose from a considerable payment made by those gentlemen to defray the one half of the contingent expences of the board of Commissioners. I wish to be informed whether it is your intention that measures be taken to remit that sum to them, or...

I have the honor to enclose the copy of an abstract of a letter from James Brown Esqre. agent of the United States at New Orleans for land claims dated 11th. Decr. last and received by last mail; by which it appears that the most important land records of the late Province of Louisiana have, contrary to the tenor of the second Article of the treaty of 30th April 1803, been sent to Pensacola by...
The plan of transferring the monies received on account of the adventures of Masters & Seamen of captured vessels, for which restitution has been obtained in London, to this City, as stated in your favour of the 11th. instant, appears perfectly proper; and, it seems to me, that it ought to be extended to all the cases in which the Agent of claims in London has, as such , and not by virtue of...
The bankers of the United States at London have under date of 14th. March last advised that they had, after consulting Mr Monroe, paid a draft of £ 1500 St. drawn by Mr. Lear on 11th.

Having neither the law authorizing the Commissrs. on the Georgia business to enquire into the claims of individuals, nor the compromise with Georgia, I cannot frame a satisfactory advertisement till my return which I expect to be before you shall have left the city. But as those documents are not necessary at least to enable me to convey my ideas on the subject of the letter to Gov. Claiborne;...

The Secretary of the Treasury has the honor to enclose an account presented by Mr Ellicot for the use of the instruments used in running the Southern boundary of the United States. This claim the Auditor does not think himself authorized to admit.

Your’s of 31st. ulto. is just receive’d. Permission had been given for the Batavian to sail from Baltimore with French sailors. Gen.
