This will be handed to you by mr William C. Preston a young gentleman of this state, either son, or nephew (I know not which) to the gentleman of that name with whom you served in Congress about 1792. I do not know him personelly, but learn from those who do, and in whom I have confidence, that he is of excellent talents, and perfect integrity. his standing in this state is high, and he will...
The importance that the inclosed letters should safely reach their destination impels me to avail my self of the protection of your cover. this is an inconvenience to which your situation exposes you, while it adds to the opportunities of exercising yourself in works of charity. According to the opinion I hazarded to you , a little before your departure, we have had almost an entire change in...
In a letter of the 6 th inst. I took the liberty of troubling you with a part of my annual correspondence at Paris . the remainder, not then ready, I now take the liberty of putting under your cover as a supplement to the trouble then giving given . not knowing where Baron Humboldt is I must ask the favor of you to add the necessary address. nothing new having occurred since my last, I can...
I take the liberty of putting under the protection of your cover a letter to Cardinal Dugnani at Rome , in the hope that thro’ the Nuncio resident at Paris it may find a sure conveyance to him. in return for this trouble I wish I could give you any news which would interest you. but, withdrawn entirely from all attention to public affairs I neither know nor enquire what Congress are doing. you...
I avail myself as usual of the protection of your cover for my letters. that to Cathalan need only be put into the post office; but for that for Appleton I must ask the favor of you to adopt the safest court course which circumstances offer.    You will have seen by the newspapers that there is a decided ascendancy of the republican party in nearly all the states. Connecticut decidedly so: it...
Your letter of July 22 . was most acceptable to me, by the distinctness of the view it presented of the state of France . I rejoice in the prospect that that country will so soon recover from the effects of the depression under which it has been laboring; and especially I rejoice in the hope of it’s enjoying a government as free as perhaps the state of things will yet bear. it appears to me...
‘It is said to be an ill wind which blows favorably to no one.’ my ill health has long suspended the too frequent troubles I have heretofore given you with my European correspondence. to this is added a stiffening wrist, the effect of age on an antient dislocation, which renders writing slow and painful, and disables me nearly from all correspondence, and may very possibly make this the last...
Th: Jefferson requests mr Gallatin to give a safe passage to the inclosed letters, and salutes him with constant friendship NHi : Papers of Albert Gallatin.
After a long silence I salute you with affection. the weight of 80. years pressing heavily on me, with a wrist & fingers almost without joints, I write as little as possible, because I do it with pain and labor. I retain however still the same affection for my friends, and especially for my antient colleagues, which I ever did, and the same wishes for their happiness. your treaty has been...
A recent illness from which I am just recovering obliges me to borrow the pen of a grandaughter to acknolege the reciept of your welcome favour of June 29. from N. York. I read it with great satisfaction. occasional views, to be relied on, of the complicated affairs of Europe are like a good observation at sea, which tells one where they are after wandering with the newspapers till they are...
