Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 9 July 1804

Monday 9 July 1804

Dear Sir

John Gibson’s commission as Secretary of the Indiana territory expired on the 14th of May last & has not been renewed. If this was an omission, the sooner an appointment takes place the better; but a difficulty still arises. Is he to be paid and if so from what funds for the time he had no commission?

Respectfully Your obed. Sevt.

Albert Gallatin
