The repeated neglects on the part of Mr Neufville Comr. of loans for S. Carolina to render his accounts, as stated in the written memorandum from the Comptroller’s office, render a delinquency probable & a removal necessary. The enclosed letter from Mr Gaillard contains the names of several persons recommended for successors. Respectfully submitted DNA : RG 59—LAR—Letters of Application and...
Van Pradelles register is dead Persons recommended Grymes dist. atty. with 600 dollars only Robertson Secy. 2000 dollars & Commr. Johnson— Lewis judge & Commisr.       I think that Grymes is entitled to the preference; for if Robertson be appointed & Grymes made Commr. in his place, it will be a mere temporary appointmt. and Robertson would have two better permanent offices. The Register &...
I do not recollect that any application was made by Mr Fitzhugh in behalf of his son. There is not however any vacancy in my office, nor do I think it probable that any will soon occur; for, on account of the encrease of business arising from the embargo, I engaged an additional clerk last summer; and there will be of course one more than is necessary when the embargo is repealed. You may...
Since I saw you, I have received the two enclosures—one from Hodge Surveyor of Newbury port, a federalist who had always done his duty and whom we meant to preserve—the other from Little a moderate federalist who confirms the bad character of Cogswell & speaks in favour of Marquand whom Gen. Dearborn had originally recommended as Collector—You had concluded to keep Cross the collector some...
I enclose the list of nominations for collectors &a. in Massachussets, and also for Providence & Champlain. There is a vacancy in New Jersey; & probably two more will occur. But as some time must elapse before we can act on these, I think it best that the others should not on that account be delayed. Respectfully Your obedt. Servt. I have omitted in the list. Isaac Carter of Massts. Surveyor...
I have the honor to transmit a Report prepared in compliance with the Resolution of the Senate of the 17th. instant, and which, together with the annexed documents, includes all the measures adopted by this Department in conformity with your instructions to carry into execution the Act of Congress of 13th. February 1806. That Report does not however embrace that part of the enquiry which...
The transactions at Jersey (Powles hook) are certainly infamous. The Surveyor Williams a federalist has cleared & will continue to clear cotton stored there. We have no successor ready; but we must stop his career. Permit me to announce that he is dismissed. The Collector of Amboy may in the mean while & until we have a successor ready, manage the business. Respectfully Your obedt. Servt. DLC...
I will thank the President for the loan of the survey herein mentioned & which relates, I presume, to the intended communication between the Chesapeake Bay & Albemarle Sound. Respectfully DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
Distribution which has been made of the 30 vessels authorised by act of 9th instt. Maine Penobscot 1 } 4 The twelve old revenue
I do not perceive that any alteration is necessary in the enclosed. But I think that it would be extremely invidious not to extend it to all the Governors. Respectfully Your obedt. Sevt. From a conviction that it was to extend to all, I had so informed all the collectors in my circular of Saturday. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
I have the honor to transmit three copies of the annual account of the contingent expenses of Government defrayed out of the appropriation of 20,000 dollars for the year 1808. I have the honor to be with the highest respect Sir Your obedient Servant DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
It is necessary to prepare instructions in conformity with the 10th Section of the new embargo act. I presume that the bond being now encreased to six times the amount of vessel & cargo, the general instructions must only relate to unusual shipments , either in quantity or kind: that is to say that the collectors ought not to permit the lading or transportation of any articles which it has...
A new revenue cutter purchased at Baltimore must ere now have arrived at Savannah: and seven or eight small vessels are employed amongst the islands to prevent the transportation of cotton either across the St. Mary’s or on board foreign vessels at sea. Against these, even with a superior force, we can do nothing unless we be at war, if they keep more than 3 miles from the coast. The armed...
I enclose the following papers vizt. 1. another letter from Collector Ellery. We cannot enforce the embargo in R. Island with Howell for dist. atty. & Barnes for judge 2. a letter from Bates. Has Govr. Lewis received any instructions respecting either actual settlers or lead mines? He had none from this department. What should be written to him on that subject? 3. a letter from Collector of...
For information This subject struck me as important; and a clause has been inserted in the amendatory act to provide against it. But it is very difficult, with every penalty and care to prevent the exportation of specie. How far the evil will extend, we will perceive by the diminution of cash in the vaults of the Bank. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
I had already received & rejected a duplicate of Jacob Smith’s petition. There could be no hesitation in the case as she is a vessel owned by citizens of the United States, and the President had no authority to grant a permission unless by virtue of the power vested by the first Embargo act: and that has never been used for any but public purposes. The vessel being originally foreign bottom...
The complaints against—Clarke, collector of York (Maine) respecting violations of the embargo, if not countenanced, at least permitted, appear well founded. Both Mr. Cutts who represents the district & Mr Storer who lives within nine miles of York (at Portsmouth) recommend the removal. The propriety of appointing the person herein mentioned is respectfully submitted. DNA : RG 59—LAR—Letters of...
I have the honor to transmit a statement shewing, as far as returns have been received from the collectors, the number of vessels which have departed from the United States with permission between the 22d of Decer 1807 & the 30th Septer. 1808, and specifying the other particulars contemplated by the resolution of the Senate of 14th Nover. last. New Orleans is the only important port from which...
It being the duty of the district attorney to decide in the first instance of the propriety of instituting suits for infractions of the revenue and embargo laws, I requested Mr Sanford the dist. atty. for New York to examine the case of the British boats seized last spring by the collector of Niagara. I have now the honor to enclose his answer together with his correspondence with his...
I receive perpetual complaints respecting the delay in issuing patents for lands. After the people have completed their payments, it is truly injurious to give them just grounds of dissatisfaction. I enclose for your information the list of patent-certificates lodged by the Treasury in the State Department & for which patents have not issued. They amount to 610; of which more than 130 have...
In conformity with the suggestions arising from the complaints made respecting the French vessel ready to sail from Baltimore, the collector of that port was directed to stop the departure & to report a full statement of the case. This having been done, the vessel now waits your decision; and I have the honor to enclose both the original correspondence connected with the permission given to...
I enclose two letters from the collectors of Delaware, & Barnstable respectively with the intended answers. Are they correct? Respectfully Your obedt. Servt. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
Will you have the goodness to read the enclosed report & to suggest any alterations which you may think necessary. Respectfully Your obedt. Servt. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
The conduct of M. Woolsey collector of Champlain (N.Y.) had apparently been so fair & energetic that I testified to him last summer yr. approbation of his conduct. Members of Congress from N. York & Vermont had thrown general insinuations against him & so had Thomas in his letter to you. I had stated that if any fact Could be pointed out, we would investigate. But the enclosed letter &...
I understand Mr Harrison’s nomination has been negatived. As we must within twelve days make a large remittance to the Comr. of loans, it is desirable to know whether it be intended that Mr Harrison should continue to act under the temporary commission & how long? Respectfully Your obedt. Se rvt. I enclose a special application DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
Intended opposition & violations in Massachussets. I have no doubt that 2 or 3 hundred vessels will sail whenever the continuance of the embargo is ascertained: Have the six small vessels of the navy been ordered there? as had been agreed. Can any other measures been adopted? A circular directing vigilance in that particular respect was sent a week ago. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
Will you be pleased to return Collector Simm’s letter in which he submitted Lamphier’s appointment. Respectfully Your obedt. Sert. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
I have the honor to enclose D.W. Coxe’s application & papers respecting the ship “Comet” which sailed in August from Philada. for New Orleans & put in in distress as is stated, at Havannah. The object of his application is first that the bond should not be put in suit to which it will be answered, as has uniformly been done in similar applications, that the bond must be put in suit, & that the...
I enclose sundry letters which will I hope be sufficiently intelligible. Indisposition prevents my writing more at large. I wish to have the Nantucket letter, signed I believe by Coffin, which stated the vessels that might be trusted. You did not return it; and it would assist me in checking special applications. Respectfully Your obedt. Sevt. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
No vessel with a cargo can be permitted to touch at Havannah, as such cargo would undoubtedly be landed or taken by the Spanish Government. To any vessel going in ballast with Anderson there can be no objection. I do not understand how the U.S. have any immediate interest in the sale of the city lots any more than in that of any other city property. The city owes to the U.S.; & all the lots...
