Being always anxious to support the honor and fair fame of the Republican cause, to the utmost efforts of my feeble abilities, may I beg permission to lay before the President and Father of our Nation, some facts relative to the Office of Collector of the Revenue for the Port of Salem and to make a few observations on the appointmt of another Officer should a vacancy happen,—at a time almost...
22 July 1802, Salem. Acknowledges JM’s letter of 12 July [not found] enclosing a commission for him as a commissioner of bankruptcy for the district of Massachusetts. Regrets he cannot accept the office owing to pressing commercial business that would make it “ extremely inconvenient .” RC ( DNA : RG 59, LAR , 1801–9, filed under “Crowninshield”). 1 p.; docketed by Jefferson.
Remarks on the American flag & seamen. The writer of the anonymous communication enclosed to the President, has stated “that America lost immense sums in the course of the late war by spoliations,” and there can be no question about it, but he certainly attributes these losses to a wrong cause. I would ask if the 400 American vessels captured by Great Brittain previous to the ratification of...
I have the honor to inclose you some ill-digested remarks on the anonymous communication which you sent me yesterday.— I acknowledge the practice alluded to is supposed to exist among our merchants, but I assure you it is more a subject of clamour with some interested people than any thing else. If it were really carried on to the extent, and in the manner described by the writer, and had...
Should you think it necessary to remove Mr. Hodge the surveyor for Newbury port Massachusetts, we beg leave to recommend Francis Carr Esqe as his successor.— We have reason to believe, from the best information we have been able to collect, that Mr. Hodge does not conduct himself in the most prudent manner. We have understood from good authority that he is a high party man, generally very...
2 boxes. containing the dried parts of Halibut 2 Kegs. of Cod sounds & tongues, each separate, and in pickle, only one has a few fins of the Halibut packed in it, no more of the last could be procured as the fishermen are not in the habit of curing it. It will be necessary to let the sounds & tongues remain in water at least a day before eating to take off the salt, but those not intended for...
Agreeably to my promise just before I left Washington, I lately sent you the articles mentioned in the enclosed memorandum, which I procured about six weeks past immediately on the return of our fishing vessels from the Banks. It was some time before any good opportunity offered to forward them, and the vessel by which I was finally obliged to send them will proceed no further than Baltimore,...
Mr. Crowninshield presents his compliments to Mr. Jefferson and begs leave to inform him that the cost of the Fish was so trifling it hardly need be estimated as any thing, and Mr. C has made no memodm. of it. at the farthest it could not have exceeded 4 Dollars. Mr. Crowninshield felt much gratified in having it in his power to procure it, but regrets that it was not of so good a quality as...
14 January 1805, Washington. “I have been requested to transmit the enclosed Protest [not found] to your Department. I am well acquainted with Willm Pittman who has signed that instrument. He is a native of Salem in Massachusetts where his family & friends reside, and many of them are personally known to me. Mr. Pittman’s case appears to have been an extremely hard one and it would give me...
I received late in the evening of yesterday the letter which I beg leave to enclose for your perusal & I have only delayed till this morning to come to a determination on the subject to which it refers; as it would have been improper in me to postpone my final answer a single day after I had obtained what your goodness permitted me to wait for. You will in a moment perceive the delicate...
