Gallatin, Albert (1761-1849), was born and educated at Geneva. In 1780 he went to the United States, and taught French at Harvard. He then acquired property and entered into politics, and in 1801-13 was Secretary to the Treasury, showing great powers of finance. In 1814 he negotiated the peace with England, and from 1815-23 was ambassador to Paris. He wrote on finance, politics, and ethnology, on the Indian tribes, and on the semi-civilisation of Mexico, Yucatan, and Central America; and he was the first president of the Ethnological Society of America.

“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.”
