19th Decr 1808
S. Pleasonton presents his respectful compliments to the President, and incloses a note, just received from the Treasury, by which it appears that Hart Massey, lately appointed, with the concurrence of the Senate, Collector for Sackets harbour, should also have a Commission as Inspector of the Revenue for that Port. It is indispensable, therefore, that he should be nominated to the Senate.
