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...
A commission is wanted in the name of Peter A. Schenk of New York as Marshal of do., which should be sent to me, as I am to transmit it to the district attorney in order that it may be used only in case Mr Swartwout shall not pay over the public monies in his hands.

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.

Give our...

§ 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. As the Intendant and other Spanish Officers may, in consequence of the late orders, be expected to leave the Territory in a very short time, permit me to suggest the propriety of...
§ 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. Each of them received 1000 dollars on that account in 1802 and Mr Livingston in May 1804 wrote that he had trans[m]itted his acct. to Mr Madison. If either...
