I now forward the paper on the Batture promised in my last. It appears by Mr. Pinkney’s last letter that Brown the fugitive was in London & had engaged his attention. As no proceeding, answerg our purpose, can be had agst. him, other than a suit for recovering the debt, will it not be proper to forward to Mr. P. whatever documents may sustain the action, particularly his official Bond; or an...
I have recd. your several letters of the 15, 16, & 17th. The appointment for the Revenue Cutter at N. O. is approved & so noted to the T. Dept. and a Commission for Freeman ordered to be made out without delay. Poinsett promises, by his qualifications, every thing to be expected from a substitute for Gelston. I have sent the returned papers to the Dept. of State, that new ones may be forwarded...
I have recd. your favor of the 21st. Aug. I can not say precisely what use is to be made of the paper on the Batture, in its present form. If it be intended for publication, directly, as well as thro’ a report of the arguments at the Bar, some alterations will be proper. It appears that Brown, partly by the application of the Alien law, partly in consequence of his operations under a...
I have recd. your favor of the 5th. inclosing one from Mr. Aster. Whatever personal confidence may be due to him, or public advantage promised by his projected arrangement with the Russian Fur Company, there is an obvious difficulty in furnishing the official patronage which he wishes; whether the arrangement be regarded as of a public or of a private character. In the former, it would require...
I have recd. safe the manuscript of Dupont, and the pamphlet sent with it. The letter from Foster to you, I have handed on to the Secretary of State. The exemption of Articles for the use of pub. Ministers, from the impost, was founded in courtesy, & has been continued from respect to a course of precedents. The plea that it was required by the L. of N. cannot be sustained: Still less could...
The inclosed Letter was brought to me by the young gentleman in whose behalf it was written. He had other respectable recommendations addressed to you, which he has doubtless forwarded: His personal appearance does not make against him. He therefore stands in fair comparison with the other candidates to be taken into view, and who are better known to you than to me. The accounts by the Jno....
Will you ascertain by a line to Philada. this evening, whether Carswell will accept if appointed to the commisariate? As another person is under consideration, it will be best if it cd. be done, without disclosing the source of the enquiry. If you write & have no other occasion to send to the post office, Mrs. M. will take charge of the letter & have it delivered for the mail. RC ( NHi :...
29 July 1812. In accordance with the 3 Mar. 1809 “act further to amend the several acts for the establishment & regulation of the Treasury, War & Navy Departments,” directs that $450,000 “be applied out of the following appropriations Viz Pay & subsistence of the Navy two hundred thousand dollars, Provisions one hundred thousand dollars, ordnance one hundred & fifty thousand dollars, to...
The communications from the B. Govt. lately recd. thro’ Baker are of a curious character. They promise that the O. in C. would cease on the 1st. Aug: with a right reserved to renew them in May next, in case the conduct of France and of the U. S. should require it; and particularly in case the Non-Imp: Act should not be repealed within 14 days after a notification of the actual repeal should be...
I have just recd. your favor of the 13th. I had proposed to set out for Virga. on friday, and am very glad to learn that you will be with us before that takes place. I expect Mr. Monroe every moment; and Mr. Pinkney being within call, I shall be able to decide with the best advantage the several important questions on hand. Previous to the acct. of the loss of Michillimackin⟨ac⟩ orders had...
