I have duly recd. your favor of the 11th. inst. on the subject of Mr. Savage, & inclosing a letter to you from him. If Mr. Savage refers, as is presumed, to a claim of compensation for his services, beyond the commission allowed him, it is not understood that any law is in force which would justify the Executive in yielding to this claim. The interposition of Congress alone, can therefore...
17 November 1803, Department of State. Encloses “an account of the Naval Force of Morocco, as far as is known, exclusive of the two frigates captured by the Vessels of war of the United States.” “A Ship of 30 Guns and 150 Men. / Two gallies built last year. / Another galley was getting ready at Tatuam [Tetuán] in August, and the Governor of Tangier at that date expressed his intention of...
§ To William Eustis. 1 November 1805. “Will you permit me to inclose for your consideration, a commission whch may be recommended by the advantage of local conveniency? It will not be put on record untill your decision shall warrant, which it will be agreeable to receive as soon as it may be reasonably expected.” RC (offered for sale by James D.

Several considerations appearing to render it expedient that the Commander in Chief, now with the Army in the Territory of Orleans, should be at the Seat of Government, as soon as the prerequisites to his setting out, will permit, you will please to transmit him instructions to that effect. Should the correspondence between the Navy Dept. and Capt: Porter, not have been otherwise communicated...
Letter not found. 17 July 1810. Acknowledged in Eustis to JM, 29 July 1810 . Inquires about orders given to U.S. Army troops marching to Pittsburgh.
I have recd. your letter of the 16th. answering one from Genl. Wilkinson of the 14th. of which a copy was inclosed. Your objections to his request seem to evince the irregularity of it. Nor do I perceive its importance to his object. As the examination of the Officers, if present, being ex. parte, wd. of course be without cross examinations, their testimony may be taken where they are, with...
I have just recd. from the War office a copy of the letter of July 12. from Lt. Colo. Sparkes, the original of which addressed to you, had been forwarded. The present Mail allows me but a moment, to say that the request to have the garrison at Fort Stoddart reinforced, seems to be amply justified by the circumstances on which it is founded; at the same time that it accords with other...

I have recd. your favor of the 19th. A long letter, now with the Dept. of State, from Judge Toulmin, confirms the reality of a projected expedition from his neighborhood agst. Mobille; which he considered however as suspended, if not abandoned. The inclosed copies of letters from Govr. Holmes, & Secretary Robinson, will give you the latest information of what is passing on the other side of...
