§ To Richard Harrison
25 March 1805, Department of State. “In answer to the questions you have put, respecting Mr. Savage’s accounts, I have the honor to observe;
“1st. That the charges for Stationery are inadmissible, but those for Office rent may be allowed, if moderate & sufficiently vouched; and
“2nd. That it has not been unus[u]al to pass small charges in such accounts, upon the deposition of the claimant, where they appear reasonable.”
