Have you obtained the name & character of the son of Made. Bonneville? I believe there remains a single vacancy of a Cadet.   it seems extremely difficult to say what had best be done as to militia at N. London. I am assured that if I designate a militia officer there, the legislature now meeting, will immediately remove him. perhaps the proper way to ensure an effectual enforcement would be...
These recommenders are such good men that I think it will be best to make the nomination at once if the Senators & delegates know nothing to the contrary. will you be so good as to consult them? NHi : Papers of Albert Gallatin.
Walden’s petition to carry 30. new negroes from Charleston to N. Orleans, may I think be granted; and if their real destination be a foreign port, so much the better. What do you think of Gelston’s proposition to consider all shipments from the town of Jersey as suspicious, for a while? If the French privateer La Fortune should be found to have the money on board, she will be detained &...
The removal of Williams is approved. has not Gelston been deficient in not giving notice of transactions under his eye, altho’ not within his district? I send you a projet of T. Coxe. I really believe that such an office would at this time be useful, & that he would execute the duties well, to collect even the existing state of manufactures in every state, would enable the legislatures of the...
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.
I do not recollect the instructions to Govr. Lewis respecting squatters. but if he had any they were unquestionably to prohibit them rigorously. I have no doubt, if he had not written instructions, that he was verbally so instructed. Carr’s story has very much the air of an idle rumor, willingly listened to. it shews some germ of discontent existing. I think Cochran should immediately dismiss...
I inclose you the petition of Jacob Smith of Newport in the case of the ship Triumph, which is a new case to me. perhaps the practice as to foreign ships arriving since the embargo laws, with which I am unacquainted, may facilitate the solution. what should be done? The Atalanta. is not the Collector the person who is to search into the fact charged? I do not know who it is that does this in...
The inclosed petition from Deville was handed me by Genl. Turreau. I told him at once it was inadmissible, that days had been long ago announced after which no vessels would be permitted to depart; that in favor of emigrants we had continued indulgences till very lately; but that as there must be an end to it, that time had come and we had determined to give no more permissions. they had had a...
The cargo, ostensible destination, ownership & other circumstances respecting the ship Lorenzo of New York, leave not a doubt but that fraud is intended. let her therefore be detained. As the law for laying permanent protecting duties will pass through your hands, I take the liberty of depositing with you the inclosed letter from mr Strong of Philadelphia, giving an account, & a specimen of...
The answer to the petition of Percival & others praying that they may be permitted to send a vessel or vessels to take up their men from the desolate islands of the Indian ocean & thence to proceed on a trading voyage to Canton &c cannot but be a thing of course, that days having been publicly announced after which no permissions to send vessels to bring home property would be granted, which...
