6 May 1801, Department of State. Since his letter to Stevens of 4 May [not found] JM has learned that War Department will ship from Philadelphia gunpowder due Tunis; supply from navy unnecessary. RC ( NHi ). 1 p. In Wagner’s hand, signed and franked by JM. Stevens’s docket damaged by torn seal.
… It is intended that the vessel you have freighted for Tunis should, if possible, sail with the George Washington , now loading at Philadelphia … for Algiers, in order that she may avail herself of the protection of the latter. To enable me to judge of the practicability of this expedient, be pleased to inform me when she will be ready to proceed to sea.… Printed extract (Charles Hamilton...
I received the inclosed certificate from Mr Eaton on the 6th of this month. You will be pleased to settle for the freight and demurrage at Tunis, if any thing is due on the latter account and draw a bill on the Purveyor for the amount at so many days sight as may enable me to cause the money to be remitted which ought to be about ten days. Be pleased to write to this Department as soon as you...
You will be pleased to draw on the Purveyor, at ten days sight, in favor of Mr Stephen Kingston, for the remainder of the freight on the Peace and Plenty which may be still due to him. A Policy of Insurance in this case is herewith sent to you. I shall cause six thousand Dollars to be remitted to Mr Whelen to answer your Dft.

I duly received your letter of the 21st. Ulto, and in consequence on[e] has been written to Mr. Kingston from this office, informing him that I do not accede to his proposition for referring the question between the government and himself to the arbitration of persons at Philadelphia, and that you was authorized to take the necessary steps in concert with him; for having it settled in that way...
28 June 1802, Department of State. “Your letter of the 22d Instant has been duly received. The arrangement which you suggest for settling with Mr. Daniel Cotton, on account of the freight of his vessel, is quite satisfactory, and you will be pleased to take measures for carrying it into effect.” RC ( NjP : Crane Collection); letterbook copy ( DNA : RG 59, DL , vol. 14).

17 July 1802, Department of State. Acknowledges Stevens’s letter of 14 July . Concurs in the opinion of the district attorney on the claim of demurrage for the Grand Turk but thinks it proper that the claimants should be referred to Treasury Department for a settlement of the question; “this is in fact the most regular course in such cases.” The claim of Stewart & Company should be submitted...
Mr. Cotton having waved his claim for the detention of the Ann Maria at Tunis, and exhibited the enclosed account against the United States for liquidation, and as the two latter items are founded on representations entirely opposite to your own statements, I have thought it most consistent with justice to the United States and Mr. Cotton, that you should enter into an amicable suit with him...
8 December 1803, Department of State. “I have received your letter of the 24th. ult.

28 January 1804, Department of State. “In answer to your letter of the 19th. inst.

The draft should be made payable at two or three days sight to ensure the receipt of the money to be remitted to the Purveyor before it is presented for...
Mr. Cotton having represented, that the letter of his Charter party of the Ann Maria would exclude him in the issue of the amicable suit directed by my letter to you of the 1st. August 1803 to be entered into, from every prospect of recovery of the part which relates to demurrage, though he states that substantial justice, such as would readily be acceded to by mercantile parties, would...
17 June 1805, Department of State . “I request you will be pleased to cause any debt, which Mr. Cotton may owe to the United States, and which may come to your Knowledge, to be deducted out of the remittance the Treasury is about to make to you, to satisfy th<e> award in his favor, enclosed in your letter of the 13th. instant.” Letterbook copy ( DNA : RG 59, DL , vol. 15). 1 p. The letter has...
Your letter of the 24th. October respecting the Minerva is not recollected: if it came to hand, it is mislaid, and has not been found after a search. For the American Vessels burned by Admiral Allemand, Genl. Armstrong had made a claim more than a year ago and received a promise that indemnification should be made. His subsequent communications do not, however, add anything respecting the...
