From Thomas Jefferson to Albert Gallatin, 24 December 1806

Dec. 24. 06.

Th:J. to mr. Gallatin

I inclose you a letter from Capt. Mc. Neill (formerly commander of one of our frigates) to Capt Tingey asking the command of the revenue cutter at Charleston. he was a good officer, reduced when the navy line was reduced; & therefore entitled to any proper thing we can do for him. I am induced to believe his claims better than those of any other. he is considered as a man of perfect fidelity.
