I do myself the Honour to enclose a few Letters from my Family here to that part of Us who are at St. Petersburg; and ask the favour of Your Care of them. It will be great Joy to your Colleague in that City to receive the Society of Gentlemen he has So long known, and whose great Experience in public Affairs will furnish him with every necessary Information. I can do no more than pray for your...
In my hurry yesterday to be ready for a waiting mail, I overlooked your question when I should return to Washington? I have not fixed on the precise time, but it will probably be not sooner nor more than a few days later than the 1st. of October. If you have a trip there in view why not extend it, bringing Mrs Gallatin with you, to Virginia? Cordial regards RC ( NHi : Gallatin Papers).
I have a Grand Son the oldest Child of J Q Adams whom we are desirous of sending to Petersburg to his father according to his fathers repeated request to us. He is 12 years old and an ingenuous youth. We are anxious to know whether you Gentlemen will condescend to take him under your protection; and whether it will be possible to send him to you before your ship will sail. His father will pay...

RC ( DNA : RG 217, Manning File). 1 p. On the verso is a note of the same date from four selectmen of Nantucket attesting to the correctness of Coffin’s letter. On the cover sheet Gallatin redirected Coffin’s...
I write you a few lines to apologise for the liberty I took in requesting you would affix you Seal to what I supposed would have been a small paper parcell containing some very trifling articles for which Mr. Adams had permitted me to send, and which I thought too trifling to request an order for as it is always obtained with difficulty—I flatter myself you will pardon the error and believe me...
29 October 1812. In accordance with an act of 3 Mar. 1809, directs “the sum of Five hundred thousand Dollars, of the fund appropriated for the pay of the Army, be applied to that of the Clothing Department.” RC (owned by Albert C.

Will you have the goodness my dear Sir to send the enclosed to Mrs. C King, as I do not know her address. I take the liberty of making this request having witnessed your readiness to serve the Ladies, and feeling and how happy they are to receive an obligation at your hands— Present my respectful Compliments to Mrs. Gallatin and believe me, Sir, with the highest sentiment of esteem and...
I have recd your favor of the acquainting me with your proposed trip to N. York. I had entered into the same train of ideas with yours as to the probable state of Jackson’s situation and wishes. It is difficult at the same time to reconcile them with the tenor of Cannings last Conversation with Pinkney; especially as Erskine’s defensive explanations accompanying his arrangement, must have...
I have recd. your favor of the 5th. inclosing one from Mr. Aster. Whatever personal confidence may be due to him, or public advantage promised by his projected arrangement with the Russian Fur Company, there is an obvious difficulty in furnishing the official patronage which he wishes; whether the arrangement be regarded as of a public or of a private character. In the former, it would require...
Not knowing whether the inclosed infor letter may give you information either new or useful, I hazard it on the bare possibility that it may. the writer both as to candor & understanding is worthy of entire credit. he is the son of a wheat-fan maker in my neighborhood, & living in the hollow of a mountain unknown to every body & with only a common education, he by some means got a copy of...
