Embassy to Russia
On Friday the cartel ship Neptune, Capt. Jones, left Philadelphia for St. Petersburg. Messrs. Gallatin and Bayard were to embark at Newcastle on Sunday. That their mission may speedily terminate in a treaty, honorable and advantageous to the United States, must be the wish of every true friend of the country....
COMMENT: The Swiss-born Democratic-Republican Albert Gallatin (1761-1849) served as secretary of the Treasury from 1801-1814, as well as senator (1793-1794) and congressman (1795-1801) from Pennsylvania, and as U.S, Minister to France (1816-1823) and to Great Britain (1826-27). James Bayard (1767-1815), was a Federalist senator (1804-1813) from Delaware. Although Great Britain refused to accept Russia as a mediator, Gallatin and Bayard were key members of the U.S. delegation that negotiated the Peace Treaty of 1814 with Great Britain, at Ghent.
