Decer. 17th 1806
If the President will direct, in any words he may think proper, that in case any remittances are wanted for Europe, those of Gen. Turreau to a certain amount should be taken, I will make an arrangement for that purpose—
The President is requested to let the Secy. of the Treasury know as soon as he has signed the suspending Act, in order that we may immediately notify the custom houses.
