Your letter of the 12th reached me only the day before yesterday, and not willing to make a hasty decision, I have delayed an answer till to day. I feel very grateful for your kind offer, which I know to have been equally owing to your friendship for me and to your views of public utility. I decline it with some reluctance because I think that I would be more useful at home than abroad and I...
It appears that a depreciation of the paper currency of Norway has taken place which requires, for the purpose of calculating the duties, the interference of the President. I enclose for that purpose an Act for your signature; which, if you approve, please to return under cover to Mr Duvall, as I expect to leave this for New York to morrow. I also enclose for your approbation a recommendation...
I send the two paragraphs. I believe the whole to be sufficiently distinct, with the exception perhaps of the last sentence of the first paragraph. If the forfeitures are not remitted at all, there will be considerable injustice, great discontent, & 8 to 10 millions of dollars put in the pocket of the collectors. If they are altogether remitted, the importers will make unreasonable profits, &...
I forgot to mention in my letter of yesterday, that in addition to the letter designating the agent to Buenos Ayres as commercial agent of the U. States for that place, a passport in the usual form appears necessary. If this also designates him as commercial agent, the usual description of the person might be omitted. Will you have the goodness to give also directions to that effect. You have...
I enclose the substance of a financial paragraph, also a statement of the receipts & expenditures of the year ending 30th Septer. last and an estimate of those of this quarter. These will supply you with all the facts on which the paragraph is founded. In the paragraph for military schools, I would place in the most conspicuous point of view (when speaking of revision of existing law) the...
6 February 1811, Treasury Department. Transmits a statement of importations in American and foreign vessels from 1 Apr. to 31 Dec. 1809, prepared by the register of the treasury, in compliance with a Senate resolution of 21 Jan. 1811. RC and enclosure ( DNA : RG 46, Legislative Proceedings, 11A-E4). RC 1 p. Enclosure (10 pp.) is a statement in two parts—imports in American vessels and those in...
At request of Mr Astor, I beg to be informed whether his son in law Mr Bentson can be permitted to have a passage on board the public vessel which is to take Mr Erving to Europe. I told Mr B. that I would try to ascertain the fact before Monday. I have thrown some notes on the back of Mr Astor’s letter; be pleased to return his English passport. Mr Astor sent me a verbal message that in case...
The enclosed letter asserts positively that Hutchinson is warmly attached to the present administration. That from his connections & residence at Lisbon, he will be the most respectable & best appointment, I really believe. On those grounds, permit me once more to renew my application in his behalf. Cathcart is already placed, & will certainly give much less satisfaction to the commercial part...
I have the honor to enclose a Statement transmitted by the Collector of Boston, in relation to the ship Arno which entered Tonningen with a forged Sea Letter. Exclusively of the cases respecting forged marine papers which have from time to time been communicated by the Department of State, one only has come to the knowledge of the Treasury, the particulars of which are explained by the...
The monies approprd. by 1st. Sect. of Act herein mentioned, not being stated to be for the use of the navy cannot by the Secy. of the Treasury be ordered for that purpose. It must on the contrary be observed that the words used are the same wh. have in former laws been exclusively applied to fortifications & been accordingly placed under the controul of the Secy. of War. RC ( DLC ). Docketed...
