I found that my statement would be too long to give you the trouble of copying in the form of a narrative from yourself as had been at first proposed. I therefore wrote it in a letter directly to Mr. Henry himself. Indeed I thought it a proper respect for the candid views with which he seemed to ask explanations. While it is in your hands make what use of it you judge expedient by permitting...

You have probably seen or heard of some very abusive letters addressed to me in the publick papers by a mr Martin of Baltimore, on the subject of Logan’s speech, cited in the Notes on Virginia. I do not mean to notice mr Martin, or go into the newspapers on the subject. but I am still anxious to enquire into the foundation of that story, & if I find any thing wrong in it it shall be corrected,...
I do not know whether you have seen some very furious abuse of me in the Baltimore papers by a mr Luther Martin, on account of Logan’s speech published in the Notes on Virginia. he supposes both the speech & story made by me to support an argument against Buffon. I mean not to enter into a newspaper contest with mr Martin. but I wish to collect, as well as the lapse of time will permit the...
Your’s of Dec. 25. came to hand yesterday. I shall observe your directions with respect to the post day. I have spoken with the Depy. Post. M. Genl. on the subject of our Fredericksburg post.

1798. Jan. 5. I recieve a very remarkeable fact indeed in our history from Baldwin & Skinner . before the establishment of our present government a very extensive combination had taken place in N. York & the Eastern states among that description of people who were partly monarchical in principle or frightened with Shays’s rebellion & the impotence of the old Congress. delegates in different...
I acknowleged, my dear Maria, the reciept of yours in a letter I wrote to mr Eppes. it gave me the welcome news that your sprain was well. but you are not to suppose it entirely so. the joint will remain weak for a considerable time, & give you occasional pains much longer. the state of things at Chesnut grove is truly distressing. mr B.’s habitual intoxication will destroy himself, his...
Your favor of July 6. was to have found me here: but I had departed before it reached this. it followed me home, & of necessity the enquiries after our friend Madame de Corny were obliged to await mrs Monroe’s arrival at her own house. this was delayed longer than was expected; so that by the time I could make the enquiries, I was looking again to my return to Philadelphia. this must apologize...
I recieved, my dear Catharine, from the hands of your brother, the letter you have done me the favor to write me. I see in that the excellent dispositions which I knew in you in an earlier period of life. these have led you to mistake, to your own prejudice, the character of our attentions to you. they were not favors, but gratifications of our own affections to an object which had every...
