2583. EMBARGO, Seamen and.—

difficulties of the crisis will certainly fall with
greater pressure on some descriptions of citizens
than on others; and on none perhaps with
greater than our seafaring brethren. Should
any means of alleviation occur within the range
of my duties, I shall with certainty advert to the
situation of the petitioners, and, in availing the
nation of their services, aid them with a substitute
for their former occupations.—
To Captain McGregor. Washington ed. v, 357.
(M. 1808)
