Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 9 February 1807

Feby. 9. 1807

Dear Sir

In order to fix the compensations of Judge Prevost & of his successor Lewis, Mr Prevost’s form of resignation is wanted. I will thank you to lend me his letter which shall be returned. The date of Bate’s resignation as judge of Michigan is also wanted.

It is of urgent necessity that a collector should be appointed for the district of York in Maine, there being neither deputy, nor surveyor to fulfill the duties. Mr. Cutts informs me that he has handed a recommendation.

The enclosed memorandum shows the cases where it is necessary to send nominations for “inspector of the revenue for the port of” where the officer has been nominated only as collector.

Respectfully Your obedt. Servt.

Albert Gallatin
