The exchange of places which you suggested would, in my opinion, have a most salutary effect on the conduct of the war: but, on mature reflection, I apprehend that it would not satisfy public opinion and would be more liable to criticism than almost any other course that could be adopted. Respectfully Your’s RC ( DLC ). Docketed by JM. The details of this proposed change have not been found,...
It appears doubtful whether the contemplated light house near Presquisle on Lake Erie can be erected under the act of cession of the State of Pennsylvania passed on 2d instt. The act has an express provision that neither the jurisdiction or right of soil is ceded, but only the occupancy and use thereof for the purpose of erecting the light house. The acts of Congress of March 2d 1795 & August...
It having been understood last autumn that a number of intruders had settled on the public lands in Madison County (Bend of Tennessee) Mississippi Territory Mr Thomas Freeman was instructed by direction of the President to notify those persons that unless they signed declarations that they had no claim to the land & obtained permissions to remain as tenants at will, they would be removed by...
I had the honor to receive your letter of the 20th. ultimo, in answer to mine of the 8th. preceding. As legal questions of some nicety may result from the right of priority secured by law, to the United States, from the interest of Jeremiah Condy in the co-partnership of Jeremiah Condy & Co., and from the nature of the trust vested in the Secretary of State, permit me to request you, not to...
Mr Gelston, having determined to go to Washington on the subject of the damages recovered against him in the case of the “American Eagle,” has requested me to write to you in his behalf and to state the distressing situation in which he is placed. Having written to the Secretary of the Treasury, permit me to refer you to that letter. I do not perceive how he can, unless relieved by Government,...

I met in New Jersey Capn. Crafts of the Neptune, the vessel on board of which were Martin & Ware when met by the Melampus in the Gulf of Biscay. I obtained from him the enclosed letter by which it appears that they were not impressed but deserted from the Neptune to the Melampus at Plymouth. Will it be of any use, if Capn. Crafts happens to come here, to obtain his affidavit of the facts? He...
7 December 1801, Treasury Department. Transmits letters “relative to the property, purchased by Mr Cooper, in reference to the Copper Mine business.” It appeared proper to communicate them to JM, but they may be needed by the auditor and the comptroller when the accounts are settled. RC and enclosures ( DLC : Gallatin Papers). RC 1 p.; in a clerk’s hand, signed by Gallatin; docketed by Wagner,...
27 December 1804, Treasury Department. “I have the honor to return Mr. Wynn’s letter. It seems to me that the act supplementary to the Consular act embraces all cases of Sales; unless the words ‘and her company discharged’ should be construed as forming an exception when a vessel is stranded; on the ground that, in that case, the crew cannot properly be said to be discharged. “If it is not...
Mr Harrison states that the swords purchased by Mr Livingston for the State of Virginia cost 257 dollars & 22/100. In order to close the business, the easiest mode would be that you should write to Govr. Tyler to remit that sum to the Treasurer of the United States on account of Mr Livingston; which paymt. being passed to his credit will balance that item in his accounts. Govr. Tyler may, I...
