Your favor of the 11th: instt: which has this moment come to hand, found me with pen in hand; on the very threshold of writing to you, for the purpose of offering you my very sincere & hearty congratulations upon the success of your Competitor Mr: Caldwell, who has obtained the appointment of Clerk to the Supreme Court of the U.S.— This exordium may appear singular to you, the more so, when...
Since the date of my last to you, I have received your favors of the 29th: ulto: and 4th: currt:—the latter enclosing letters for the Judges of the Sup: Court, four of which, I immediately caused to be delivered, to the judges present.

I have scarcely heard of you since my return excepting once through M r : Johnson, and as I had nothing interesting to communicate, I have deferred it till now, when an occasion seems to authorise it. On the removal of the Seat of Government to the City, the Office of Clerk of the Sup: Court of U. S. will most probably become vacant, as the present incumbent, M r : Sam: Bayard, has since his...
Your kind favor of the 26 th : ult o : was delivered to me by my Mother on my arrival, the 12 th : inst t : at this place. I thank you very much for it, and your friendly congratulations upon my safe return. I had before the receipt of your letter, learnt from M r : & M rs : Johnson that yourself & family were well, and I doubted not but a short time would bring me a confirmation of it from...
