I think with you that the establishment of ports of delivery at Green bay & Chickago would only furnish pretexts for not entering at Mackinac; and that a new port at the falls of St. Mary’s requiring a military post to be established there would not quit cost, nor is this a time to be multiplying small establishments. The collector should have his eye on the Schooner Friends on her return, &...
Th: Jefferson asks the favor of a consultation with the Heads of Departments tomorrow at 11. Oclock, & that they will do him the favor to dine with him. NHi : Papers of Albert Gallatin.
1. the Comet & D.W. Coxe. I see in those papers no evidence but the letters of James Dixey & the protest of James Dixey; to which may be added the survey of a man chosen by himself to examine and report the state of the vessel. with such a surveyor no doubt every port in the W. Indies is prepared to assist the smugglers. Dixey himself being the principal Culprit, his evidence is null. on the...
I request you to be pleased to issue a warrant upon the appropriations for Barbary Intercourse for four thousand five hundred dollars, in favor of Louis Deblois, the holder of the two enclosed bills, the one drawn upon me by Tobias Lear, for two thousand five hundred dollars, in favor of John Wingate, on the 28th. March last, and the other by James Simpson, for two thousand dollars in favor of...
I inclose you a paper containing a Memorial of the legislature of Misipi. to Congress respecting their lands. I also send some observations of Doctr. Barnwell on the country about N. Orleans which I think you will like to read.—Burr has surrendered himself to Cowles Meade. NHi : Papers of Albert Gallatin.
The inclosed, tho’ false and frivolous, yet requires to be answered with care. the other side of the medal requires to be shewn. we may safely admit there are talents of a certain kind on the other side; because all the talents which were venal have been bought up by the administration. Smith has refused. an offer is made to Jones. Duval has also refused & an offer is made to Kelty. health,...
Be pleased to issue your warrant on the appropriation for the Contingent expenses of the Department of State for five hundred dollars, in favor o f Christopher S. Thom, who is to be charged and held accountable for the same. I am &c. DNA : RG 59—DL—Domestic Letters.
The inclosed certainly cannot be wrong: can it be taken amiss by mr Nicholson himself? to what place must I address it? I wish it to go by this day’s post, to cut off applications. NHi : Papers of Albert Gallatin.
Notwithstanding the lapse of time, nothing definitive has taken place, in concert with Mr. Hassler, in relation to Mr. Le Sueur. Mr. Crawford has the subject in hand, and will communicate the result. I can add but little to the public information which goes to you from the official source, and thro’ the press. You will find that specie is at length re-instated in its legitimate functions; at...
Since I wrote to you on the administration of the foreign intercourse fund, I have deemed it necessary to take more detailed views of the laws on that subject & the practice under them. the papers I had preserved of what was done in Genl. Washington’s time enabled me to do it pretty fully, and the whole is stated on the paper inclosed. I have thought it best to communicate it to you that you...
I will sign a proclamation for the sale of the lands North West of Ohio whenever you think proper. I believe the form is in your office. and in the course of this week we will agree on the officers. I am afraid we know too little as yet of the leadmines to establish a permanent system. I verily believe that of leasing will be far the best for the US. but it will take time to find out what rent...
I inclose you the letter of a mr Shuter asking permission to send a vessel to Lima. in this you will be pleased to do according to rule, the case presenting no circumstance to entitle itself to an exemption. Also the letter of Stephen Cross of Newbury port suggesting laxity in his brother the Collector, and a spirit of resistance to the laws in the place. Lastly an anonymous letter from N.Y....
Not knowing whether the inclosed infor letter may give you information either new or useful, I hazard it on the bare possibility that it may. the writer both as to candor & understanding is worthy of entire credit. he is the son of a wheat-fan maker in my neighborhood, & living in the hollow of a mountain unknown to every body & with only a common education, he by some means got a copy of...
The inclosed bond is signed by mr Maury the father, who I have no doubt is worth the 10,000 D. therein named. he owns a valuable tra[ct of] land on which he lives, well improved as a farm, & a considerable number of negroes: and I question if he owes 10. Dollars in the world, having always been one of the most prudent & cautious men. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
A recent illness from which I am just recovering obliges me to borrow the pen of a grandaughter to acknolege the reciept of your welcome favour of June 29. from N. York. I read it with great satisfaction. occasional views, to be relied on, of the complicated affairs of Europe are like a good observation at sea, which tells one where they are after wandering with the newspapers till they are...
The jealousy of the European governments rendering it unsafe to pass letters thro’ their post-offices, I am obliged to borrow the protection of your cover to procure a safe passage for the inclosed letter to M de de Staël , and to ask the favor of you to have it delivered at the hotel of M. De Lessert without passing thro’ the post office. In your answer of June 7. to mine of May 18 . you...
I inclose you David Greenlaw’s affidavit to be forwarded to the District Attorney of N. Carolina as you propose. you can add the fact mentioned in Govr. Page’s letter that Greenlaw is at his father’s in Northumberland county Virginia, where he will remain till the 3d. of December to be ready to assist in bringing to justice the persons named in his affidavit. I presume it will be well to...
7 February 1805, Department of State . “I request you to be pleased to issue a warrant for one hundred and twenty dollars, on the appropriation for the contingent expenses of the Mississippi Territory in favor of James Davidson assignee of the enclosed bill of exchange [not found] drawn for the same sum by Cato West Esqr. Acting Governor of that Territory, upon me dated 1st. October 1804. Mr....
Be pleased to issue your warrant on the appropriations for the Contingent expenses of the Department of State for five hundred dollars in favor of Christopher S. Thom: He to be charged and held accountable for the same. I am &c. DNA : RG 59—DL—Domestic Letters.
On the subject of the Western road, our first error was the admitting a deviation to Brownsville, and thus suffering a first encroachment on it’s principle. this is made a point d’appui to force a second, and I am told a third holds itself in reserve. so that a few towns in that quarter seem to consider all this expence as undertaken merely for their benefit. I should have listened to these...
The act concerning duties &c where it says that ‘the President is authorised to establish such place at or near Michillimakinac to be the port of entry,’ might have been construed to leave it discretionary in him to do it or not, had it not been followed by the imperative words ‘a collector shall be appointed.’ this seems to remove the ambiguity of the former words, and to make it a duty to...
I request you to be pleased to issue a warrant, on the appropriation for the relief of Seamen, for Seventy nine dollars 70/100, in favor of James Davidson Esqr., the holder of the enclosed Bill of Exchange for that amount drawn upon me by James Leander Cathcart, Consul of the United Sates, at Madeira, on the 31st. of Decr. last, who is to be charged with the same on the Books of the Treasury....
26 December 1804, Department of State. “The enclosed letter addressed to Mr. Wynn, was communicated to me with a view to establish the construction it urges of the Act supplementary to the Consular act: but as the construction contended for would affect the public receipts, I have supposed it proper that your sentiments should rule the Consuls, some of whom have referred the point for...
I am giving in my last nominations to the Senate. the place of Surveyor at Richmond having become vacant during their session must be filled during the same. two persons are proposed, William Wardlaw, & Ryland Randolph, both excellent men & republicans, well known to me personally: the former a Medical man, at his ease, the latter in want, of higher standing, and probably would be quite...
12 January 1802, Department of State. “The Secretary of State presents his respects to the Secretary of the Treasury and has the honor to enclose a copy of a letter lately received from Samuel Cabot Esqr. together with the letter from the Secretary of State therein referred to.” RC and enclosures ( DNA : RG 217, First Auditor’s Accounts, no. 13,148).

Agreeably to a request of Tobias Lear Esqr., contained in a letter of the 22d. of July last, received by this Department, I have the honor to request that the Bill now enclosed from his Mother Mary Lear, drawn upon me on the 11th. instant, for Five hundred dollars may be paid out of the appropriations for Barbary Intercourse, to Clement Storer Esqr., in whose favor it is drawn; charging Mr....
Yours of the 7th. was recieved yesterday; and I have this day inclosed mr Sandford’s letter to mr Madison for perusal and to be forwarded by him to you. the skill & spirit with which mr Sandford and mr Edwards conducted the prosecution gives perfect satisfaction. nor am I dissatisfied with the result; I had no wish to see Smith imprisoned: he has been a man of integrity & honor, led astray by...
I inclose you the papers in the cases of two vessels at Bermuda Hundred under a suggestion of an intended evasion of the embargo. they will explain the whole case on which you will be pleased to decide and direct in conformity with the established course. also a petn from the starving inhabitants of Passamaquoddy, who I had supposed could not want flour for 7. years to come.   the former case...
These recommenders are such good men that I think it will be best to make the nomination at once if the Senators & delegates know nothing to the contrary. will you be so good as to consult them? NHi : Papers of Albert Gallatin.
I return you the papers concerning the duties payable in the Western ports, and consider the opinion you have given as a sound one. the case of the Louisiana squatters is a serious one from it’s magnitude, yet to be touched with a hand as careful as firm. a proclamation must doubtless precede any act of force. the cases may be analysed in the following gradation. 1. Squatters since notice of...
