I have recd. your letter of the 4th. & return the prospectus of your intended publication with my subscription to it. There is at present a more than ordinary desire of information concerning the Indian Tribes, and a just anxiety to save, every interesting peculiarity in their physical, moral & social features from the oblivion, threatened by the extinction or transformation which seems to...
I have recd. your letter of the 12th. with a printed Copy of the Report on the Claim of Mr. Monroe. No one acquainted with his great personal worth, and who reflects on his long and distinguished devotion to the service & welfare of his Country, but must feel a particular interest in the result of the Report. With my thanks for the communication, you will please to accept the expression of my...
I have recd. from the publishers in Boston, a copy of your "Sketches of Algiers"; forwarded as they intimate by your request. The work is welcomed by the public here, as it well deserves to be, as a very valuable addition to what was hitherto known of the singular and interesting quarter of which it treats. Your Country gains credit also from the example of such a publication by one of its...
I have recd. yours of the 21st. The refusal of the offer to Mr. Wirt, inviting as it was, does not surprize me. It is very gratifying to learn that Mr. Lomax takes so well with everybody. I hope his success will make some amends, for the delay in filling the Chair which is to receive him. I have made a beginning with Capt. Peyton as the consignee of my business at Richmond, as recomended in...

J. Madison presents his respects to Mr. Hayne with many thanks for his politeness in forwarding the copy of his Speech on the "Mission to Panama". The subject appears to have been discussed with great ability on both sides; and the Speech is of high rank among the ablest on the side which it espouses. FC (DLC) .
I will not attempt my dear Payne to express what you have added to our preceding distress by disregarding your Mother’s last letter inclosing the means for your immediate return. You have not even mitigated her feelings and gloomy conjectures, by acknowledg. the rect. of it. And I now hasten to a subject which if disclosed to her, would but inflict new tortures. I learn that the arrears for...
I have just recd yours of the 24. with the articles referred to in it. Subjoined is a list of what you will be kind eno’ to send by the bearer. I am not sure that some of them may not be out of the range of your plan of business. In that case you will not be again troubled with such. I return the rect for the last load of Tobo. and wish you to retain the ensuing rects. I am sorry to find the...
I have recd. your favour of the 22d. and at the same time, under another cover, the paper containing your observations on the depending modification of the federal Courts. The Judicial Department is evidently not a little difficult to be accomodated to the territorial extent to which the Legislative & Executive may be carried, on the federal principle. To prevent the gradual departure from...

I return the correspondence inclosed in yours of the 3d. inst. The reluctance of Mr. Emmett, & probably of his colleagues, to the enlargement of their duties, is neither to be wondered at, nor yielded to. You have put the matter on a ground to which I can suggest no improvement. It may be well perhaps that what has passed, should not be generally known. With some it might produce reflections...

I have recd. yours of the 4th. inst. I hope your Guest will very soon set out, if he sd. not already have done so. On the subject of yr. charges agst. him, I must refer to my last, adding only that speedy attention will be given not only to any necessary advance for his journey, but to what may become due for his ordinary expences, during his detention if that sd. happen. The bill for the past...
I am very sorry that a lapse of attention on my part, shd. have given you the trouble denoted in yours of the 13th. The communication inadvertently addressed to you was intended for your colleague of the War Department, to whom as existing Presidt. of the Agricultural Society of Albemarle, the Botanical Box ought to have been transmitted.

I have duly received your letter of April 28th. and with it a Medal of Gold, commemorating the completion of the Erie Canal, presented in the name of the City of New York by order of the Common Council; the Medal being accompanied by a box made of Maple brought from the Lake in the first Canal boat the Senaca Chief. I beg the Corporation to be assured that I feel in its full extent, the value...
I have, just recd. yours of the 14th. and inclose $15. in discharge of the acct. transmitted. When I became a subscriber for the Franklin Gazette My letter to Mr Bache mentioned that it was a departure from a rule I had found it expedient to lay down, and that my subscription was not a permanent one. As no special request however has been made for a discontinuance of the paper, I very...
I received by yesterday’s Mail, your letter of the 14th. inviting, in the name of the Committee of arrangement, my presence at the celebration in the Metropolis of the U.States, of the fiftieth anniversary of their Independence. I am deeply sensible of what I owe to this manifestation of respect on the part of the Committee; and not less so of the gratifications promised by an opportunity of...
Your favour of the 22d. did not come to hand till yesterday afternoon. We are so fortunate with respect to the hooping cough, that it maybe safely brought in the case of your little patient who may herself be benefitted by an excursion. Mrs Madison and myself will, therefore, with much pleasure, receive the fulfilment of the promised visit from yourself and Mrs Dunglison, as soon as your...
The Editor, tho’ he cannot be insensible to the genius, the learning, the philosophic inspiration & the love of country displayed in the writings now committed to the press, is restrained not less by his incompetency than by his relation to the Author, from dwelling on themes, which belong to an eloquence that can do justice to the names of illustrious benefactors to their country and to their...
Understanding that an important cause to be argued at O. C. House brings together among others several professional strangers, be so good as to ascertain the day on which the Judge & the Counsel on both sides can conveniently take a dinner with me, and present my invitations to them accordingly: making yourself one of the party. P.S. Should Mr. C. Johnston attend on the occasion, I hope he...
I have but this moment recd. your letter of June 16. inclosing the invitation from the Committee of the Corporation of the City of N. York. The delay was occasioned by an error in the Mail which carried the letter to an office South of me. The last post mark is "Charlottesville June 29". To this explanation permit me to add the expression of my personal esteem & respects FC (DLC) .
Your letter of June __ inviting me, in behalf of the Corporation of the City of N. York to the celebration of the approaching anniversary of American Independence, having passed on to a post office South of me, has but this moment come to hand on its return. Had the present State of my health therefore which obliged me to decline a previous invitation to a like celebration less distant, not...
I have just recd. yours of the 4th. A few lines from Doctr Dunglison had prepared me for such a communication; and I never doubted that the last scene of our illustrious friend would be worthy of the life which it closed. Long as this has been spared to his country and to those who loved him, a few years more were to have been desired for the sake of both. But we are more than consoled for the...
I have received, Sir your letter of the 6th. instant, requesting such information, as I may be able to give, as to the origin of the document a copy of which was inclosed in it. The motive & manner of the request would entitle it to respect, if less easily complied with than by the following statement. During the Session of the General Assembly 1784-5, a Bill was introduced into the House of...
I received by the last mail yours of the 8th. inst: The article bequeathed to me by your grandfather, had been delivered by Dr. Dunglison, and received with all the feelings due to such a token of the place I held in the friendship of one, whom I so much revered & loved when living and whose memory can never cease to be dear to me. I must beg you my dear Sir, to assure your excellent and dear...
