This is the last day of the chancery-term; with which and the terms of other courts I have been occupied ever since the first day of March; sometimes with two at a time, and always with an indisposition, from which I am just recovering by the observance of a Regimen. This must be my apology for not again writing to you earlier; but I shall certainly do so in the course of the week. The general...
I beg you to attribute my late delay to any thing, but inattention to your wishes. I have not only been hurried off from home, since I wrote to you last, but returned, and found another court, which, from the involution of jurisdictions by the Act of the Congress, which expired with Adams, I had utterly forgotten.

Does the bequest of negroes and other personal estate in the will “to his children” exclude the representatives of those deceased between the date of the will and the death of the testator. This question may perhaps be...
E. Randolph, with best respects, to Mr. Jefferson. Yesterday your suit with Johnson was tried; when the judge declared it to be perfectly clear in your favor, and dismissed the bill. Johnson’s counsel said, that she should make no remarks in opposition to the decree. I presume, therefore, that an appeal is not meditated. If it be so, the present result can never be varied.

As the terms for an arrangement, including Mr. Short’s claim on me, will soon be perfected with the comptroller, permit me to obtain the favor of you, to forward to me the order, which I formerly gave in Mr. Short’s favor, on Messrs.

Before the departure of the attorney of this district for Norfolk, I wrote to him, with his permission, a letter intended to be conveyed to the President of the United States, upon the subject of John Moss, who has lately received a sentence of ten stripes, and of imprisonment for four years, for robbing the mail at Petersburg. I know not, whether, in his hurry, he may not have forgotten to...
I have the honor to acknowledge your favor, of the 28th. of December, on the subject of John Moss. Some of the difficulties which you were pleased to suggest, had occurred to my self; but that which I now remove by the inclosed copy of the judgment, was supposed by me to have been obviated by a communication from the attorney of the District. With the application for mercy, you would never,...
