From Thomas Jefferson to United States Senate, 2 December 1807

Dec. 2. 1807

To the Senate of the United States.

Several vacancies having happened in the army of the United States, during the last recess of the Senate, I granted commissions as stated in the list hereto annexed marked A. accompanied by a letter from the Secretary at War, which commissions will expire at the end of the present session of the Senate. I now therefore nominate the same persons for the same appointments.

I also nominate the persons whose names are stated in the list marked B. signed by the Secretary at War for the appointments therein, respectively proposed for them.
