I leave the inclosed open that you may see the papers relating <to> the Hotel Keepers: Should Genl. Cocke, unexpectedly at this season, be in Charlottesv<ille> be so obliging as to have the letter put into his hands; in the contrary event, into t<he> proper mail. I enclose for you Mr. Brokenboroughs report to be assorted with the other documents accompanying that to go from the Rector: on...
I have just recd. a letter from Col. Storrow in answer to an inquiry from me, which shews that he has still in his hands the packet put into them by Mr. Sparks. I am sorry that his inattention caused you & Mr Coolidge the trouble indicated in your favour of Feby. 22. The delinquent is so penitent for not even dropping me a line on the subject, that, in the consciousness of our own...
Whilst reflecting in my sick bed a few mornings ago, on the dangers hovering over our Constitution and even the Union itself, a few ideas which, tho’ not occurring for the first time, had become particularly impressive at the present. I have noted them by the pen of a friend, on the inclosed paper, and you will take them for what they are worth. If that be anything, and they happen to accord...
If I have not sooner thanked you for the considerate present in the Box of fruit referred to in your letter of , the apology will I am sure have occurr’d to you. A delay which the Box met with on the way lessened the value of a part of its contents, but not the obligat<ion> felt for the kindness wch prompted <...> the favour. I am regaining, tho’ not rapidly, my health, & strength. I hope the...
I have recd. your two letters of Mar. 30. and Apl. 1. the letter inclosing a copy of the contract with Mr. Long; to which I must ask the favor of you to add a copy of the power of attorney to Mr. Gilmer to enter into such engagements. I ought to have done this in the first instance. I feel the greater regret in imposing the trouble, now that I learn the new calls on your time in which it will...
Will a holograph Will without Witnesses , convey real estate in Washington according to the law in force there? Mr. Trist will oblige his friend J. M by an answer. RC (DLC : Nicholas P. Trist Papers).
Your favor of the 28th has come to hand with less delay as you may see than happened to mine of the 23. I consider the appointment of Docr Jones as decided. The account of him from Mr. Short was favorable; and Docr. Patterson, in declining himself, recommended Dr. Jones. I had been led to think well of Mr. Walker, when the Visitors were last assembled, but the supposed immaturity of his...
I return the paper enclosed in yours of the 6th I have found in it the proofs of ability for such discussions which I should have anticipated. As I understand your discriminating view, (and it seems to be clearly expressed) of the Virginia documents in -98-99, it rescues them from the hands which have misconstrued & misapplied them. The meaning collected from the general scope, & from a...
Yours of Octr. 7. was duly recd. and with every disposition to befriend the object of it. Being precluded by a rule forced on me, from doing it in the usual mode, it was my purpose to avail myself, of Mr. V. Buren’s expected visit here, by incidentally turning his attention to your aptitudes for official services. It now appears that he has declined the trip altogether, which leaves me unable...
Yours of the 28th. Ult: with the accompanying newspaper came duly to hand. I had noticed the "Friend to truth," and was quite at a loss for an author uniting all the qualifications for the task. Your name did not escape me, but I took for granted that your occupations wd. not admit such an avocation. I was impressed also by some remark of the Enquirer, that there had been an interview with the...
