GALLATIN TO JEFFERSON.
Department of the Treasury, November 27, 1805.
The supplements to the message exactly meet my ideas. Only I do not understand precisely the limitation to the number of captains and lieutenants, which is intended by the words “to the number of frigates which were actually retained for service.” But if I understand it, it seems to me that the word vessels should be substituted to frigates, and employed in that to retained for. Perhaps, however, I am mistaken in your intention of limitation.
The yellow fever part of the message will bring on you all the fever-importers and boards of health of the Union.
With respectful attachment, your obedient servant.
