I enclose the recommendation in favour of a successor to Mr Bloodworth. Neither of the gentlemen was desirous to make any; but I requested them to do it—as it appeared more than probable that we would be obliged to make the change after they were gone. The gentleman recommended by Macon & Turner is more conspicuous in a political point of view than the other, having been an Elector &a. That...
I have the honor to enclose the copy of a letter from the Collector of Philadelphia respecting the marine hospital, and to submit the propriety of adopting some of the rules which he recommends in order to bring the expenses within the limits heretofore prescribed vizt. not to exceed the receipts. It does not appear to me, considering that the assistance heretofore granted to sick and disabled...
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.
foreign powers friendly — effect if redress is meant, it seems wrong to raise expectations which probably will be disappointed— Quere whether Mr King’s negotiation should be hinted at? Indians   Should not the attempt to treat be mentioned, stating also the determination not to press upon them any disagreeable demand? This to guard against any blame which the imprudence of the Commissrs. might...
You have not returned any answer in the case of Colo. Worthington’s resignation. He recommends Jesse Spencer of Chilicothe as a proper successor for the place of Register of the land office. I enclose a recommendation for keeper of the light house at old Point Comfort. The enclosed letter from the Collector of Michillimakinac (which you will be good enough to return) deserves consideration. It...
Your three letters of 29th ulto, and of 3d & 7th inst. reached me all together and only day before yesterday: what detained the first so long I cannot understand. M. Dickerson has had a relapse of the bilious fever, and, though with great reluctance, is obliged in obedience to his Physicians, to abandon the idea of going this autumn to New Orleans. I am altogether at a loss to select another...
I enclose the only recommendation for the office of “Surveyor of the port of Darien and Inspector of the revenue for the same” created by an Act of last session. The office is unimportant, and the emolument very trifling. With respectful attachment Your obedt. Servt. Mr Spalding is the member of Congress for the district where Darien lyes, and lives in the vicinity. DLC : Papers of Thomas...
Some days ago a letter from Mr Briscoe Collector at Nottingham (Patuxent Riv.) was communicated to you. It related to the arrival of a vessel without captain or papers, which under those circumstances was directed to be seized & dismantled and the cargos landed. The Captain is now here, and I enclose his papers which are so far regular and the Collector’s letter enclosing the amount of the...
I enclosed yesterday papers relative to a vessel suspected of having been fitted out for slave trade. The presumptive evidence is strong as she had on board, (& several of the same not inserted in her manifest,) handcuffs & bolts, scantling & boards fit to make partitions, 35 shaken hogsheads which would be necessary for water for the number of slaves she might bring back, a quantity of bread...
Thomas Barclay stands charged on the Treasury books with Livres 69,280.17.7 but claims salary at the rate of 24,000 livre a year amounting together to 144,000 livres; which if allowed would leave on that account a balance due to him of Livres 74,719.2.5.    Mr B. was Consul & commissioner of foreign accounts: no salary affixed by the former Congress; whether any was promised is not known. But...
I do not believe that any principle short of that proposed in the bill I have sketched, will cut off the evasions at Passamaquody. No consideration however should induce us to propose a measure not strictly constitutional. But although the objection has been made, it does not appear to me that that provision is liable to it. By the constitution, no preference is to be given to the ports of one...
I have the honor to enclose the list of the several officers of Government with their salaries or emoluments as compiled in this or received from the other Departments, and arranged in the following manner. They may be considered as forming two general classes: One consists of all those who are employed in the collection of the public revenue and receive their compensations by deducting the...
I arrived here on Sunday last with my family, and found your letters of 1st. & 8th. inst., on which, on account of some arrears of current business, I have not yet acted. The only difficult commission is how to obtain by correspondence information respecting not only the abilities but moral and social disposition of Levy. As a lawyer he is superior to Dickerson and would I presume do...
It is necessary to make the appointments of Surveyors for the ports of the Ohio and Mississippi, as the act commences on 1st July and time is required to transmit the commissions. All the applications & recommendations, together with a memorandum of the act &c. are enclosed. As no vessels were built this season at Pittsburgh, the appointment may be suspended till we have received information....
I have the honor to enclose a letter of the Commissioner of the revenue, enclosing a copy of the resignation of the Supervisor of Delaware . From the state of the collection of duties in that District, it does not appear necessary that the Office should be continued any longer: but although the acceptance of Mr. Truett’s resignation, without filling the vacancy, will produce the effect; yet it...
If you approve, I will send the enclosed on Monday to the Committee. May I, when conversing with them, say that it is the opinion of the Executive that it would be better at this time to suspend the act? or in what manner & with what modification must the opinion be expressed? I mean to friends— Respectfully If you can send me an answer to morrow, it will enable me to make the communication...
I am at last enabled by the information received from the southern Survr. Gen. (Mr Pease) to enclose for your signature a proclamation directing the sale of the public lands west of Pearl river in the Mississippi territory, that is to say of the vacant lands, within the indian purchases, which lie between the Mississippi and Pearl river. You will however perceive that instead of designating by...
As I wrote to Gen. Muhlenburg on the subject of T. Coxe being appd. Collector by him—Would it not be well to write immediately, as his Commission is made out, that he must be silent on the subject? Or in what other manner is it thought fit to communicate to him the non acceptance of the Collectorship by T.C.? That office is so valuable that P.M. having promised to give it as we had decided, it...
I do not know one person in Connecticut to whom I could apply for information respecting Jonathan Bull who is recommended for the office of Commisr. of loans. But I recollect that at an early period of your administration it was the wish of a number of republicans in that State that he should have that office: nor was there any other objection, but a disinclination to depart by a general...
The enclosed is an application for a regular packet on Lake Champlain from Vermont to Canada during the embargo. It is embraced by no law but the first general act which excepts vessels authorised by the President. The permission may facilitate the evasions of the embargo. Mr Newton is slow & I have been very unwell. He has however my bill as amended & containing 9 Sections. Whether reported...
Whenever a commission is issued to a new Commr. of loans, his predecessor is officially notified by the Comptroller to surrender his papers &a. Provided that notification shall not reach Mr Perkins till after the 1st day of July no inconvenience will arise. Might not Mr Skinner be privately informed that a commission will be sent to him in Boston which he will find there say on 3d July? and...
Will you be good enough to let me see the recommendations for the enclosed nominations ? If my memory serves me right, the two last were recommended by Crowningshield. The name of the new collector of Portland I never heard before— With respect Your affecte. Servt. NB. I do not intend answering Tracy, as I think the request from a committee to a head of dept improper, but will communicate to...
I have the honor to enclose copy of the application of William Greetham, requesting that a Mediterranean pass, by our laws called passport, should be granted to a vessel owned by citizens of the United States and navigated by american Seamen, but not built within the United States. Such papers have been uniformly refused in similar cases in conformity to the circular of August 15. 1796 also...
I have the honor to transmit Adam Gantz’ petition praying for a pardon, the effect of which will be the remission of a penalty incurred by reason of an infraction of the revenue laws, and his releasment from confinement. His former petition had on your suggestion been returned to him in order that the district judge’s certificate, which accompanies this, might be obtained. I have the honor to...

I once more enclose the Sandy hook papers. It is true that some of the alterations which you proposed in the agreement are at variance with the letter which I had previously written to Pendleton— Respectfully Your obedt. Sevt. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
The enclosed estimate of Drs. 686,076.59, will, according to the request of the Secy. of the Navy, be transmitted to Congress on Tuesday next. It is stated to consist of contracts, purchases, & expenses incurred by special directions of the President, who has, I presume, already seen it. It is now sent in reference to the paragraph in the President’s message, in order that they may agree. The...
On the recommendation of Mr Latrobe, a Mr Demun has been appointed to take the Survey of the coast. Had Barnwell’s application come in time he might have been united: but all the instructions were sent during your stay at Monticello and immediately before my journey to the Westward. Even if he had been joined, I do not know how he could have been spared during the sickly season. Mr Briggs has...
Capn. Moore of the Delaware revenue cutter has resigned. There are three candidates viz. Ez. H. Teel recommended by Collector Mr Lane Ch. Beñet by late Govr. Hall Joseph Sawyer by Peter Muhlenberg & others I incline in favour of the last, because he has been six years first mate of the cutter, and Mr Rodney who had recommended the present captain (Moore) told me that even at that time he would...
