Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 17 October 1803

From Albert Gallatin

Monday morning 17 Oct. 03

Dear Sir

As far as I can ascertain, the balance in Treasury on 30th Septer. last was only 5,850,000 instead of six millions we had estimated it. The receipts in the Treasury during the year ending 30th Septer. last (which is left blank in your message) have certainly exceeded 11,300,000 dollars.

Respectfully yours

Albert Gallatin

RC (DLC); addressed: “The President of the United States.”

balance in treasury: TJ retained the original estimate of “nearly six millions of dollars” in his annual message at this date (see the tenth paragraph). left blank in your message: see the ninth paragraph.
