JEFFERSON TO GALLATIN.
March 13, 1808.
Th. J. to Mr. Gallatin.
There have been several appointments of marshal to North Carolina, all of whom have refused to accept. West has acted till lately, merely to give us time to procure one, and he has recommended a man about whom Mr. Macon and Turner have written and will get an answer in a fortnight. In the mean time an addition of 400 D. to their emoluments may induce acceptance. Peppin’s application appears unauthorized, but may he not go in some of the vessels going for property to some other port? I received many petitions yesterday, all proposing to send their own vessels. I imagine they will come in bales every day. I understand there is scarcely a merchant in the United States who has not property somewhere beyond sea. We must have a consultation soon on this subject, and another very important one. Affectionate salutations.
