If mr Gallatin will be so good as to call on Th:J. on his arrival at the office, the other gentlemen will then attend on being notified, & consider the subject of mr Gallatin’s letter recieved yesterday. it is the more necessary as every thing else is ready for the departure of the vessel.   Affectte. salutations.

Would it not be better to direct the application to be made to the present judge, in order to have the practice in Maryland brought to an uniformity with that of the other states. probably if the present judge were informed what has been the opinion and practice of every other district judge in the Union except his predecessor, he would be disposed to respect more the former than the latter...
will you examine the inclosed and make any alterations you think adviseable? it is written, as in my own name, but will be changed into the 3d. person & go from the department. I think it need go only to the Governors there mentioned. not a symptom of force has appeared any where else as far as I have heard. Affectte. salutns. NHi : Papers of Albert Gallatin.
Can you be so good as to let me have the financial paragraph this morning as there is not more than time enough to submit the message successively to the different gentlemen for correction & then to have copies. NHi : Papers of Albert Gallatin.
