James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Albert Gallatin, 17 August 1801 (Abstract)

§ From Albert Gallatin

17 August 1801, Treasury Department. Encloses letter [not found] from Griffith Evans, secretary to commissioners under article 6 of the Jay treaty, requesting an advance of $850. Has checked Evans’s accounts and finds they were settled in June 1799, since which time Evans has received $9,500 without stating how money was applied. Refuses further advances without JM’s requisition. Recommends that Evans send accounts and vouchers to justify further advances if JM approves continued payment.
