Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 4 April 1807

Saturday 4 Apr 1807

Dear Sir

Notwithstanding what was said yesterday respecting Judge Meigs, yet as he is satisfied, & an accumulation of officers is ineligible & will be unpopular, I am glad to have received this morning the enclosed recommendation for Receiver at Detroit. Abbot being a native of the territory is a recommendation; and Hoffman’ opinion is entitled to great consideration.

Respectfully Your obedt. Ser.

Albert Gallatin
