|Andrew Jackson to Alexander Mouton thanking Mouton and the Louisiana legislature for a resolution that repaid to him a fine
|5 June 1843
|Jackson, Andrew (1767-1845)
|Thanks Mouton and the Louisiana legislature for a resolution that repaid to him a fine from 1815. He thanks them for "wiping from my memory the past imputations." In 1815 Judge Hall fined Jackson for enforcing martial law in New Orleans. Jackson strongly resented the fine, since he felt he had done what was necessary. Finally, not long before his death, the state legislature agreed to repay him the fine, with interest.
