Tho it is probable, that the subject may reach you & Mr. Jefferson in some other way, I think it a duty to submit the two inclosed scraps to his and your perusal. They are some of eight or ten which have come on. The pamphlet of Mr. Cunningham (of whom or his deceased father I never heard till within a week) has reached the ultra federal men here within a day. I not heard of or seen any copy....
I took the liberty on the 31st. Ulto. to address a letter to you, which was covered, with some parts of news papers, to Mr Madison. In the dusk of the evening, two packets on my table were closed and, inadvertently, that to you was closed before revision, and taken to the post office. The direction at bottom to both of you was omitted, which you will be pleased to consider the same as this;...
The extraordinary operations against the cause of self government is manifest in the old world, and the unprecedented combination against Liberty under name of the holy alliance, together with guarded but effective cooperation with them on the part of Great Britain, and some of the minor powers appear to threaten the world, in which we must prosper or suffer and act with many trying...

I have heard of a collection of the debates in Congress between 1790 and 1800, which are to be shewn to me and will at least direct my searches and attention. Perhaps want of money, which exists in the case, may occasion a sale. If it should I shall make the terms known to you. Our state after 41 years, and with only 700 to 800 slaves in 1810 are about to pass a final abolition act, paying...
I should have replied sooner to your last favor, but I had hoped to find some of the debates &ca, for the ten years, which you do not possess. I am sorry I have not yet succeeded, and I fear the rarity of them and the constant purchases by young & rising public men, foreigners, libraries &ca. may disappoint me. I will however keep your wishes constantly in view. The Missouri case has...
In consequence of a very kind letter of the 13th Ulto. from Mr. Jefferson, in which he recognizes me as one he is pleased to stile “ a fellow laborer indeed, in times never to be forgotten ,” & to treat me as a long tried public and personal friend, I have been led to reply to him, in considerable latitude. I was, at the moment of the receipt of his letter, meditating an application to Mr....
You are one of the last persons to whom it is necessary to observe how comfortable are the exchanges of the heart among those who are united in principles at once virtuous and noble. I feel all that belong to such circumstances in the perusal of your letter of the 13 th ult o It is true that I aspired to be the fellow laborer (juvenile and modest) with superior men. I have been amply repaid by...
During your investiture with the office of President you were so good as to confer the appointments of Midshipman on two of my Sons. One of them, Henry Sidney Coxe on the return of Peace was induced by me to withdraw as I feared the influence of the severities of the service, would certainly deprive the family, his father & himself of his life. His symptoms were decidedly hectic. I induced him...
I beg leave to place, on the table of your library, the inclosed addition to my original Memoir on cotton. Never did my anticipations of any subject in our affairs issue in a conformity of subsequent events so considerable as in this case. The price alone has proved more steady and undiminished than But India Cotton has been sold in England at 6d to 10d Steg for the best, dam[as]k, and...
