Observing by the Papers that you are one of the Commrs: appointed for purchasing part of the public Debt at Markett in which you will doubtless probably wish to employ an agent—if this Should be the Case—Mr Woodward occurred to my mind as a person well calculated for such an employ—both for integrity & a thourough acquaintance in this kind of business—having been for a long enrolled in the...
It gives me sensible pain to be under the necessity of troubling you further with my personal concerns amid the weight of your public Cares: but entertaining the fond hope that you are not totally disinterested in my welfare, I am prompted to observe to you, that upon my arrival here I found Mr. Keith had been pushing all possible force for the Marshalship of this District, a place which I...
I had the honor to address you not long since (via Hamburg) acquainting you that, notwithstanding the best exertions of our Minister at London (agreably to the instructions of the Secy of State by your order) no chance whatever remains to me for the recovery of a large property which was condemned by the Admiralty Court of England about eighteen months past—on the principle & for reason that I...
I beg leave just to call to yr recollection my having informed you (when I had the honor to see you last summer at New york) that I had suffered in the loss of a large property by the verdict of the Court of Admiralty of England—founded on the circumstance of my being an Inhabitant of this Country—you seemed to be of opinion that being in a public capacity my residence here could not be...

I was honoured by the due receipt of your obliging favr. of Augt 30th for which you have my Cordial thanks—I am sensible of the justness of your observations relative to the Presidents nominations, and doubt not they will be all made free from any partial bias whatever, and on the principles of humanity, Wisdom, & justice to his Country, whose best interests, have been his uniform study and...
I am pleased to find that the President in his late Speech to both Houses of the American Parliament has specifically called their attention to Foreign Affairs and to those necessary provisions, preliminary to his nomination in that Department. The rising Consequence of this Country in the scale of Nations will doubtless be a subject of much political & commercial speculation in the European...
Pardon the liberty I take, and permit me to call to your Excellency’s recollection, a Person who at the time the Committee of Convention for framing this State’s Constitution were sitting in this town, requested to be taken into your Offices, as a Student of law, and had your promise to be received if the services of your country should not call you abroad; but which proving to be the case in...
