[ New York, August 6, 1802. On August 13, 1802, Gallatin wrote to Hamilton : “I had the honor to receive your letter of the 6th instt.” Letter not found. ]
I wrote to you two days ago by a private ship, as the Packet goes in a day or two I avail myself of the Opportunity to inform you that I have sent to the Secy of State my Resignation, and requested to be relieved in time to return home in April next. As there is reason to apprehend that we may be at war with all the barbary powers, as well as morocco I have asked for a Passage home in a...
After further enquiry, I annex little credit to the notice posted at Loyds’, that two american vessels had been carried into Algiers. Two vessels the Franklin morris master, and the Rose (master not known) said to be of Philadelphia, are reported to have been taken by the cruisers of morocco or some other of the Barbary Powers. These are also the vessels which are mentioned at Loyds as having...
At the request of Capt Du Buisson, I have the honor to send you two documents one of which is the copy of an Arbitration Bond between Mr. Roget and himself, the other the copy of an award, which has been made pursuant to the submission. As Mr. Roget makes difficulties about the performance of the award (though given unanimously and under circumstances very obligatory upon his candour) Capt du...

Tucker Esq Treasurer of the United States, for twenty thousand current Guilders, being the sum received from the Batavian Government on account of the condemnation of the cargo of the ship Wilmington Packet, at St Martins, on the 30th Sept. 1793 and placed by Mr Murray late Minister Resident of the United States at...
I am sorry to inform the President of the United States through you, that a malignant fever now spreading through this City leaves the Mint little hope of keeping the workmen of the Mint many days longer. It being within about 500 yards of the Mint has greatly alarmed us. Indeed, such is the state of men’s minds on the occasion, that I think it neither advantageous nor safe to keep the Mint...
I now return you the letters of mr. Pichon, and of Jones; also those of Van Polanen & Thos. Sumter. The letter to be written to Van Polanen should be so friendly as to remove all doubt from the Batavian government that our suppression of that mission proceeds from any other motive than of domestic arrangement & e[c]onomy. I inclose you a draught of a letter to the emperor of Morocco, which...

Has received circulars from Gibraltar announcing the Moroccan declaration of war against the U.S. “By my Circular of the 11th. of Septr. 1801 copy’s of which were forwarded to the Department of State and to Comodore Dale I foresaw this event, & I hope I will not be thought presumptuous should I assert that it might have been prevented.” Encloses Simpson’s answer...

I learnt by yesterday’s post mr...
Your favor of the 3d. came to hand yesterday. whether it be best to insert the bars of the jail windows into an iron frame, or directly & separately into the stone [work], you can, on consultation with so many good judges on [the subject] form a much better judgment than I can, that I must forbear giving any opinion on it. that good white oak is better for every part of the roof than either...
On further view and consideration of the papers from Genl. Sumpter, and Colo. Senf I continue of opinion that we ought to purchase the lands spoken of by them, about 4, or 500. acres, and further would approve of a purchase of any quantity within the limits of the act of assembly (2000 acres) considering that they must [be moderate in their] price as yet and that much will be wanting for...
When I had the honour to see you in Philadelphia in the Spring of the year 1800 you were pleased to recommend to me a plan for a Town which you supposed would exempt its inhabitants in a great degree from those dreadful pestilences which have become so common in the large cities of the United States. As the laws of this Territory have given to the Governor the power to designate the seats of...

In exercising...
