I have recd. yours of the 24th. The conduct of the B. Govt. in protesting the arrangement of its Minister surprizes one in spite of all their examples of folly. If it be not their plan, now that they have filled their magazines with our supplies, and ascertained our want of firmness in witholding them, to adopt openly a system of monopoly & piracy, it may be hoped that they will not persist in...
Since my last I have recd. yours of the 26th. If the sketch of Erskine’s instructions be faithful, ⟨it⟨ shews as clearly that Canning was determined to prevent an adjustment, as that Erskine was, to effect it. The proof is the stronger of C.s insidiousness, as he must have known from the answer of Mr. Pinkney to the expedient which wd. substitute the capture of our trade under our laws for...
I have recd your favor of the acquainting me with your proposed trip to N. York. I had entered into the same train of ideas with yours as to the probable state of Jackson’s situation and wishes. It is difficult at the same time to reconcile them with the tenor of Cannings last Conversation with Pinkney; especially as Erskine’s defensive explanations accompanying his arrangement, must have...
Mr. Smith has had an official conversation with Mr. Jackson, and is to see him again today at One OC. He is to be with me in the mean time at ½ after 10, when I wish you to join the consultation. RC ( NHi : Gallatin Papers). Docketed by Gallatin. For conjectural date, see n. 1. The only Thursday falling between 3 Oct., when British minister Francis James Jackson presented his credentials to...
A letter from Govr. Tyler answering an enquiry as to the $300 deposited in my hands to pay for the Sword purchased by Chan: Livingston, informs me, that the money was returned to Virga. & lies ready to be applied to its object. That item of course in Mr. L.’s accts. may be struck out, and the charge pd. by a remittance from Va. I do not recollect the cost of the Sword; but if more than $300,...
The sea-letter, as its name & its address, import are meant to verify the ship on the High seas. As Belligerents alone have a right to such a verification, is not the Document unnecessary when there is no belligerent. If the verifying papers, intended for the Jurisdiction at the port of destination be not at present suitable or sufficient, should not some other more appropriate than the sea...
A nephew of J. M. with the approbation of his father, is desirous of finishing a mercantile education, begun at Fredericksburg about a year & a half ago, in the Counting House of some respectable Merchant in N. York. The youth is about 19 or 20 years of age, believed to be of amiable temper and of virtuous habits. His father is willing to conform to the conditions usual in such cases. J. M....
I recd. your favor written the day before your intended departure from Washington, and complied with its contents. The inclosed letter from Dr. Bache, has just come to hand. I can not do better with it, than to give you an opportunity of extending to a distressed family, whatever accomodations may be permitted, by fidelity to the public interest. You will be the better judge of the case, as a...
I inclosed to you, a few days ago a letter from Docr. Bache stating the complaints of Mrs. Jones, agst. the proceedings of the District Attorney at N. O. I have just recd. & inclose one from Mrs. Trist which is more full on the same subject. I am aware, that the business may lie, rather with the Controler, than with you; but it is not amiss that it should be under your view also. As Grymes’...
I understand that the measures taking by the Bank of the U. S. for provisionally winding up its affairs, are likely to bear hard on the other Banks, and that the evil will be increased, by the drain on the latter for paying the bonds, as they become due in the hands of the former. Would not some remedy be afforded by a distributive transfer, (which would also have a provisional reference to...
