Th:J. to mr Gallatin

Mr. Harrison will continue in office till the 3d. of March. I send you tit for tat, one lady* application for another. however our feelings are to be perpetually harrowed by these sollicitations, our course is plain, & inflexible to right or left. but for god’s sake get us relieved from this horrible drudgery of refusal. Affectionate salutations.
