GALLATIN TO JEFFERSON.
Treasury Department, 21st October, 1807.
I received this moment, at my house, your note of this morning. The perpetual interruptions of the office and my want of eyes at night induce me to remain here to-day for the purpose of finishing my remarks on your message. They are just done, and I send them with this. I regret that my not being at the office should have disappointed you. May not the orders for the Constitution be delayed till to-morrow? My impression, however, is that she should be disarmed, but not sent round to the Chesapeake. Her best station would, I think, for many reasons, be New York. But I have not heard any reasons for or against her staying or going anywhere. Mr. Smith says that he has no money to pay her, and wants me to induce the bank to advance the money.
This, for many reasons, and, amongst others, on account of the immediate meeting of Congress, appears inadmissible.
I will try to return the financial and last paragraphs this evening.
Respectfully, your obedient servant.
