GALLATIN TO MADISON.
New York, 15th August, 1807.
I met in New Jersey Captain Crafts, of the Neptune, the vessel on board of which were Martin and Ware when met by the Melampus in the Gulf of Biscay. I obtained from him the enclosed letter, by which it appears that they were not impressed, but deserted from the Neptune to the Melampus at Plymouth.
Will it be of any use, if Captain Crafts happens to come here, to obtain his affidavit of the facts? He appears in conversation to be a very decent and intelligent man.
Yesterday brought us the news of the Russian defeat of the 14th June. We have nothing else here. The people of this city do not appear to me to be in favor of war, and they fear it so much, that they have persuaded themselves that there is no danger of that event.
