To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 19 January 1809

Jany. 19th 1809

Dear Sir

The transactions at Jersey (Powles hook) are certainly infamous. The Surveyor Williams a federalist has cleared & will continue to clear cotton stored there. We have no successor ready; but we must stop his career. Permit me to announce that he is dismissed. The Collector of Amboy may in the mean while & until we have a successor ready, manage the business.

Respectfully Your obedt. Servt.

Albert Gallatin
