[on or after 11 Oct. 1807]
Th:J. to mr Gallatin.
I return the British correspondence with Gelston. I forgot the other day to ask of the Gentlemen an answer to Christie’s enquiries as to the conduct of his revenue cutter. but will take their opinions separately as I may see them. Larkin Smith (formerly Speaker of the H. of R. of Virginia) accepts as Collector of Norfolk. a very honest man, & of high republican standing, & will make an excellent point de ralliement for the republicans of Norfolk.
