I have recd. yours of Decr. 28 in which you wish me to say something on the agitated subject of the basis of representation in the contemplated Convention for revising the State Constitution. In a case depending so much on local views and feelings, and perhaps on the opinions of leading individuals; and in which a mixture of compromises with abstract principles may be resorted to, your...
Since mine of Jany. 29, I have recd. one of the papers of Hampden. But it is No. 2. the Enquirer containing the first No. and a No. from the fellow pen having not come into the neighborhood. Be so good, when at leisure as to procure and enclose it to me. I observe that some stress is laid on the reference to our Coloneal relations to G.B. as having originated with me. The fact is, that I found...
I recd. on the evening of friday your two letters of Augst. 30. & Sepr 1. with the Copy of the Virga. proceedings in 98-99. and the letters of "Hampden". When I looked over your manuscript pamphlet, lately returned to you, my mind did not advert to a discrepancy in your recorded opinions, nor to the popularity of the rival jurisdiction claimed by the Court of Appeals. Your exchange of a hasty...
(Circular) You already know that Mr Key sent forward his resignation within the prescribed time. I am now to mention to you that I have written to Mr Gallatin a request that he would ascertain and let us know without loss of time, whether a fit successor could be found in G. B. in case it should be necessary to resort thither. I wrote also, at the suggestion of Gen: Cocke, to Mr Brown,...
I have duly recd. your letter of Sepr. 27. The object of mine of Sepr. 18 was to suggest the topics & references which had occurred to me as supporting a constitutional doctrine in wch. we agreed, and in which I know you to feel a particular interest. If as you suppose a publication of the views taken in the letter, of the Tariff power in Congress, might have a useful tendency, the present can...
I recd. by the last mail your favour of the 13th. with a copy of the Pamphlet containing the two supplemental letters of Mr. Jefferson. They are as much in point as words could make them. But his authority is made to weigh nothing or outweigh every thing, according to the scale in which it is put. It would be well, if the two letters at least could find their way into the newspapers, that...
I have this moment only recd. yrs. of the 22d. I regret the delay as you wished an earlier answer than you can now have, tho’ I shall send this immediately to the P.O. My correspondence with Judg Roane originated in his request that I wd take up the pen on the subject he was discussing or about to discuss. Altho’ I concurred much in his views of it, I differed as you will see with regard to...
Finding by yours of the 16th. just recd. that you will not leave Edgewood, before a letter will probably reach it, I will ask the favor of you to make another erasure from my letter of Ocr. 30 viz. of the words--"Notwithstanding British representations to the contrary", immediately following "other than G. B. which have Colonies" The fact asserted as to other nations, will stand as well...
Since mine of the 19th. inst. I have recd. yours of the 16th., & hasten to comply with its request relating to your letters of the Spring of 1827 & those from Warminster of the last year. I send the original instead of copies, which cd. not be readily [made] As they are necessary to explain some of mine to you, may I ask the favor of you to let me have them again, after serving your own...
Your favor of the 15th. was duly recd. I had previously learnt with the feelings due to the memory of my old & highly esteemed friend, the event which it communicates. I thank you for the Catalogue of pamphlets which had been collected by him, and now return it. Tho’ containing some articles that are rare, and a number that are valuable, I have noticed none that I am desirous of procuring from...
