Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 10 October 1806

Octer. 10th 1806

Dear Sir

I enclose for your signature the Proclamation for the sales at Vincennes, the lands being now surveyed and returned.

The three weeks are the term limited by law & will not probably be sufficient as the land is to be offered in quarter Sections.

The sales are to be under the Superintendence of the two land officers and of either the Governor of Indiana or the Surveyor General. As the last officer resides at Cincinnati, and the Governor is on the spot, I presume he is the proper officer. If you approve I will write accordingly.

Respectfully Your obedt. Servt.

Albert Gallatin
