I affirm to you, that the delay, which has occurred in the arrival of my letter of the 8th instant to your hands, is not to be ascribed to me. It was sent to the post-office on friday the 9th; but too late, I believe, for the mail of that day. If I am not misinformed, it reached Alexandria on Wednesday, the 14th; from whence it was brought back on saturday, the 17th; you having passed thro’...
Until monday last I did not obtain from the office those of my own letters, which I deem proper to be introduced into my vindication. But I still want the inspection of a letter from you, dated July 22. 1795, and received by me. I applied personally at the office on Saturday last for the sight of your letters to me. The Chief Clerk went into the room, in which Mr Pickering sits, to consult...
I returned yesterday from German Town; and this morning I shall proceed to the examination of the necessary papers. Finding it important to one branch of the subject, that I should ask a small addition to the narrative in your letter of the 20th ultimo; I have to request, that I may be informed, as far as may be in your power, when Mr Hammond put Mr Fauchet’s letter into the hands of Mr...
I have this moment received a letter from Colo. Pickering, dated yesterday, informing me, that it was your “desire, that the other copies of the ratification might also receive my signature, as secretary of state at the date of the ratification.” Altho’ for many reasons, this cannot be supposed to be a pleasant business to me; yet to shew to you, that by my resignation I never intended to...
In my letter of the 19th ultimo, I informed you of my purpose to overtake Mr Fauchet, if possible. I accordingly went to Newport in Rhode Island; where I had an interview with him. The abrupt and unexpected sailing of the French Frigate, La Meduse, on the morning of the day, after I arrived there, had nearly deprived me of the object of my journey. But I trust, that I am in possession of such...
Immediately upon leaving your house this morning, I went to the office for the department of state, where I directed the room, in which I usually sat, to be locked up, and the key to remain with the Messenger. My object in this was to let all the papers rest, as they stood. Upon my return home, I reflected calmly and maturely upon the proceedings of this morning. Two facts immediately...
E. Randolph presents his respectful compliments to the President; and forgot to inform him, that the balance of the money, left by Mr Dandridge has been returned to his credit in the bank; and has been and is ready to the draught of the President or him—The sum left was 350 dollars—Paid to Mr Kit 105—Balance two hundred and forty five dollars. AL , DLC:GW . On this date, Randolph informed the...
Neither the mail of Saturday or yesterday is arrived from the Southward. So that I have no letter from Mount Vernon before me. Our consul at Bristol confirms the existence of the British order for seizing provisions, destined to France, by a letter on the 17th of June last; and many of our vessels have fallen victims to it. Very little is said here about the treaty; and I should not be...
The mail, which was expected on Saturday morning, did not arive until sunday. at least the letters were not delivered before ten o’clock on sunday morning. But no letter came from Mount Vernon. A Mr Lowndes of South Carolina was charged with the enclosed letter, containing the proceedings of the town-meeting at charleston. He gave it to me on saturday last At two o’clock P.M. I requested Mr...
Private. The only letter, which I had the honor of receiving from you by the mail of yesterday, was one written on monday the 27th instant late in the evening. I mention this circumstance, solely because the first paragraph of it renders it possible, that some other had been sent to the Post-office for the same mail. Mr Woolcott, Colo. Pickering and myself agree in the draft of an answer, now...
