Th:J. to mr Gallatin
I really think Cross ought to be immediately removed: the clearance in our possession is evidence enough of the fact. but are we provided with a successor. Hook & Reed should I think be called on to shew cause why they should not be removed. can there not be appeals from the decision of that judge? I propose to appoint Benjamin Harrison Comr. of loans for Virginia if you approve of it, & wish to do it immediately to prevent the shoal of applications which will come on mr Page’s death which may be hourly expected. Affectte. salutns.
