To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, [7 July 1802]

From Albert Gallatin

[7 July 1802]

An endorsement on the enclosed letter somewhat similar to that sketched, will be sufficient authority to justify the payment of interest to Maryland.

Respectfully submitted by

Albert Gallatin

RC (DLC); undated; addressed: “The President of the United States”; endorsed by TJ as received from the Treasury Department on 7 July and “repaimt to Maryland” and so recorded in SJL. Enclosure: see below.

The ENCLOSED LETTER with TJ’s endorsement has not been found, but it gave the Treasury Department authority to pay the $18,000 in interest due on the $200,000 Maryland loan, as TJ informs Governor John F. Mercer in a letter of this date. The endorsement SKETCHED by Gallatin is printed below.
