[ New York, October 10, 1800. On October 11, 1800, Lewis wrote to Hamilton : “Your letter of yesterday I received this morning.” Letter not found. ]
The following case occours in the transactions of the Treasury. The husband of a deceased Administratrix after her death applies at the Treasury for the settlement of an account which was relative to the administration of the wife. The Officers of the Treasury, without notice of her decease, make settlement and grant a Certificate for a balance due, in the name of the husband. Other parties...
I send you all the Books you sent me. There appears to me a passage important to Mr Rawle Questiones Juris Pub Lib 1 Chap VIII Page 178 . I mean what relates to the People of Munster who made out of the territories of Spain incursions into those of Holland. It shews by an example that military expeditions out of the territory of a neutral Power cannot rightfully be made by a Power at War &...
I have the pleasure to inform you of the arrival of the Marquis De La Fayette at York. Whether a Naval Force is come yet or not, I have not heard. I hope this will find you at Hoods with your little Fleet. Should it not I must request you to fall down there immediately with all the vessels. A vessel with some provisions for the Army and other articles goes from hence this evening. Be pleased...
I am informed that the several persons whose Services we desire to avail ourselves of on this occasion, wish an authentic assurance of what before I had communicated to you verbally. You are therefore authorized to inform them that their vessels and their Loading shall be ensured by the State, that a reasonable hire shall be paid for their vessels and men, and the usual share of prize and...
The recess of Congress permits me now to resume the subject of my letter of Aug. 12. and to acknowlege the receipt of your favors of Sept. 14. Nov. 25. and Jan. 1. with respect to British debts and property. It was thought possible then that they might come forward and discuss the interests and questions existing between the two nations; and as we knew they would assail us on the subject of...
It is with some degree of shame that I accept the kind offer in your letter of the 1st. inst. However one may sometimes do for the public what they would not do for themselves. I therefore send you our whole collection of loose laws, to be filled up as you propose. I would beg that the copying of your index or any other writing in the business may be sent to be done at my office so as to take...
It having been found necessary to engage voluntarily or to impress all the armed vessels of private property which can be had immediately, together with their crews, arms &c., and the crews of other vessels as far as necessary to man these, you will be pleased to take such of them as are lying at Ozbornes; and fall down immediately to Hood’s, taking with you such other of the said vessels as...
I have written to Capt. Mitchell about having the Vessels and property valued. I hope you will be able to find judicious persons convenient, to do it. Being unacquainted in the neighborhood of Hoods, I am unable to point them out. I have also inclosed him an order for a hogshead of Spirits out of a vessel which left this place yesterday. I took for granted Mr. Brown had provided in the most...
I cannot certainly say that any Vessels which may have gone down will not get out, but I hope they will not. The Dispatches which I sent to the French Commodore were by Capt. Maxwell. The Commodore having gone to cruize out of the Capes, the British had ventured out of Elizabeth river and were near taking Capt. Maxwell, which prevented my letter being conveyed to the Commodore at that time. I...
The Sixth of October last I Delivered to Mr. Joseph Hawkins Comasery at the Barracks 139 ℔ of mutten at 4. Dollars pr. pound, which I agree’d with him for a few Days before, for which I took a receit of Mr. John Tomas his assistant, Mr. Hawkins being some-where about The Store. I wated with patience as no money was to be had, and between the 5th. and 10th. March notis was given For Every body...
The Arrival of a British fleet and reinforcement having occasioned a discontinuance of those purposes for which the armed vessels were impressed, I have asked the favor of Capt. Mitchell to proceed to their discharge, excepting only the vessels having military stores on board and provisions. You will be so good as to see that the Ammunition &c. and other things of public property which have...

25 October 1803, Department of State . In answer to his letter of 20 Oct., informs Lewis that his “losses in the case of the Schooner Maria having happened since the 30th.
