It has been represented to me by Messrs. Sherman & Procter of New Bedford, that some things which they deem improper have taken place. The Substance of the information is that their Brig Hawk, Hathaway Master, was remeasured in Baltimore altho she had been measured in New Bedford prior to her sailing [and was possessed of a Register of the U States] that she was registered anew in Baltimore,...
The Post of to day brought me your letter of the 29th of October, which I immediately communicated to the President, and hasten to make known to you his consent to your undertaking the voyage recommended to you. It is not doubted that due care will previously be taken to secure the proper management of the public business in your absence. My most sincere and cordial wishes for the restoration...
I have before me your letters of the 18th of March, 18th of April, 8th & 27th of May. I do not observe that it is stated how the Officers who were absent came to be so; so that I am at some loss to judge whether the absence was justifiable or not.

It is true as you remark, that as no method of...
In consequence of a Statement made to me by Mr Samuel Dodge, Agent for procuring materials &c. for the fortification, I have directed the Treasurer to remit you the further sum of 1700 Dollars in bills upon you, payable to you or your order, which you will endorse to the agent in proportion to the further progress of expenditure, agreeably to my instructions of the 3d of April last.

Samuel Smith Esqr. has applied for a passport for a small vessel to be sent in Ballast to the Island of Bermuda which is herewith enclosed. Mr Smith not being possessed of the names of the Vessel and Master they are left blank in the paper to be inserted by you.

I received by the hands of Mr. Richmond your letter on the subject of the stock standing in your name on the public books. Though, according to the letter of the law, the prohibition to dispose appears to be retrospective as well as future, I am of opinion that it is consistent with sound legal construction to confine the latitude of the expression, so as to admit of the alienation and...
The Commissioner of Loans for the state of Maryland, after allowing for the Eight thousand dollars with which you furnished him, and a sum of five thousand dollars remitted him, in notes of the Bank of Maryland, would be deficient about five thousand five hundred Dollars of the sum requisite for the payment of the interest which will be payable in your state, upon the public debt on the first...
