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...
