I have this moment had the honour to receive your letter covering copies of a variety of my respected fathers letter to you about the years 1790. 91: and 92. As the packet is to leave Havre on the 16th. I lose not a moment in acknowledging your extreme kindness in doing me this favour. The best return I can make for it is to facilitate your obtaining the copies you desire of your own letters...
It is some time since I had the honour to receive and acknowledge your letter of the 14th. of August last. I infer from it that you Conceive there are many misstatements and false inferences in my observations. I have therein stated on the authority of Mr. Jefferson that Genl. Washington wished you to accept the offer of Secy. of State as successor to Mr. Jefferson, and that you declined it. I...
I have had the honour to receive your letter of the 14th of August, and have read it with that reverence which your age, and that respect which your character inspires. I beg to thank you for pointing out the misprint in regard to Mr Jay, which had led me into a labirynth of unpleasing conjectures.

It is some time since I submitted to the public certain observations on the writings of the late Mr. Jefferson, intended to vindicate my fathers memory from a gross and virulent slander contained in that mass of misrepresentations. Many of these observations were suggested by a letter of the 28th. Decr. 1794, addressed by Mr. Jefferson to yourself. Its first paragraph I did not refer to, as I...
To ensure your well-pleased extension of the usual kindness of your hospitality to Mr. Alfred Langdon Elwyn (the bearer of this note) I have only to mention that he is the grandson of the great patriot of New Hampshire, with whose public & private virtues you <...> doubtly familiar.

In tracing the conduct and character of Genl. Jackson I have had a correspondence with Genl. Armstrong upon the subject of the provisional order to Genl. Jackson of the 18th. July 1814—authorising him on certain conditions to take possession of Pensacola. It appears that order was not recd. until after the peace, on or about the 14th. March of 1815. The circumstances under which it was recd....
For your letter of the 16th. Feby I now beg leave to express my thanks, and shall take occasion shortly to add some observations, with a view of getting further information on parts of it. I have recd such high recommendations of the bearer Mr. Clarke, an English Gentleman who is travelling for health & information; and have concieved such sincere esteem for him from an intimate acquaintance...
In examining the events of the late war I believe I have ascertained that when in the fall of 1813, it became obvious that the campaign in the North would terminate in the disgrace of promising much and doing nothing, the govt projected a plan for the operations of the ensuing year, of which the principal feature was to assemble a large force just within the limits of Canada, and near the...
I have read with great satisfaction your letter of the 15 th and most heartily thank you for the cordiality of its spirit, the value of its details; for the liberal estimate you place upon my motives, and the fairness of your expressions, respecting my father. In attempting to do justice to you, and ascertain and communicate in his name, the truth, I am sure, if such things can reach here now,...
Since my last letter it has occurred to me that it should have contained an idea which I did not express. It is this—that under the circumstances in which the Governours of States, and the Continental Officers were placed, it is reasonable to suppose that however correct the conduct of the former may have been, the opinions of the latter would be unfavourable to them. Indeed, the more...
