Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 13 February 1807

Treasury Department
13th Feby. 1807


I have the honor to enclose the copy of a report made by the Comptroller, respecting the delinquencies of Thomas Archer collector of Yorktown, John Cuttler collector of Snow hill & Robert A. New collector of Louisville; and to submit the propriety of their removal from office.

A bill has passed the house of Representatives abolishing the collection district of Louisville; but if that shall be enacted into a law, a Surveyor must, in lieu of a collector, be appointed for that interior port.

No applications or recommendations have been made for any of the above mentioned offices; but if the removal of the officers or of any of them be decided on, enquiry for proper successors may more conveniently be made whilst Congress is in session.

I have the honor to be with the highest respect Sir Your obedient Servant

Albert Gallatin
