GALLATIN TO JEFFERSON.
Department of Treasury, 2d December, 1807.
Supposing that the power to lay embargoes should be considered as improper to be vested in the President during the session of Congress, how would this plan answer?
To repeal the present Non-Importation Act, and in lieu thereof to pass a general non-importation Act (from Great Britain), to take place, say on 1st February next. This is thrown out for consideration, and may be liable to other objections, but might pass the House with more facility than the other plan.
Respectfully, your obedient servant.
