Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Albert Gallatin, 12 March 1808

March 12. 1808

Dear Sir

It appears from the enclosed extract of a letter from the collector of Wilmington that we have no Marshal in North Carolina; which stops our business and even prevents serving process on a vessel which had violated the embargo.

Respectfully Your obedt. Servt.

Albert Gallatin

I enclose the letter itself, which be pleased to return. He has been referred to the district attorney for the proper mode to pursue.
