Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 23 January 1807

[on or after 23 Jan. 1807]

The cutter was lost: another is building; & as has been usual in similar cases, the master alone has been kept in pay to superintend the building. If, considering that the mates lost all their effects on board the cutter, the President thinks proper that their pay should not be discontinued during that period, there is nothing illegal in it; and orders may be given to the collector accordingly.

—A. G.
