Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 3 November 1807

Nover. 3. 1807

Dear Sir

There are two land offices lately established for which Registers & Receivers must be appointed this winter. A proclamation announcing the sale of lands will also be necessary. I expect to have the papers ready for you about beginning of December. One office is to be at Jeffersonville, & for that you had concluded to appoint      Taylor &      Gwathney. The other office is to be opened at a place to be fixed by you & not yet agreed on, but not far from the Muskingum. You have already great many applications & recommendations for that office & I have several. M’Kennan is one of the applicants.

Respectfully Your obedt. Sevt.

Albert Gallatin
