MONROE TO GALLATIN.
June 1, 1812.

I am convinced that it is very important to attempt at present the maritime war only. I fear, however, that difficulty will be experienced in the committee, which may extend itself to the gentlemen, or some of them at least, at Mrs. Dawson’s. To prevent this it is important that an early communication should take place with Mr. Crawford. Cannot you see him this morning, before you come to the President’s, to confer with and explain to him the policy of the plan preferred? I am so engaged in preparing papers that I cannot, or would not ask it of you.
