Colony, to be settled at New Holland , either in the gulf of Carpentaria or the unexplored bay opposite the Island of Timor. 2nd. do. to be settled in Africa, at Dalagoa Bay, opposite the Island...
The President’s message in answer to the call of the House respecting Genl Wilkinson has condescended to notice me. It is expressed in such a manner as not to leave it altogether certain, whether it does not hold me accountable for a bundle of Mr. Clark’s papers, before the public. On the one hand I place a value upon a good name, and on the other am elevated above much anxiety, by the...
Among the papers transmitted, by this post you will notice a copy of an award against the United States made by the Commors. under the 7 art: of the British treaty. The appropriation made for the payment of such demands having expired with the year 1800, there is at present no fund applicable to its discharge, and so I told Mr. Wood, the holder; at the same time suggesting that Congress would...
Your favor of the 26th. has found me here, on my way to Washington. I shall spend but a few days before I proceed thither, in the hope that I may be enabled to render such further services in my former station, as may be acceptable to you. With sentiments of the highest respect and attachment, I remain, Dr. sir, Your most humble servt. RC ( DLC ). Docketed by JM. Letter not found. Wagner had...
There having been no indication against my opening the enclosed, it was impossible to avoid it. It will therefore be best that it should seem to have been opened by yourself. Your’s Sincerely DLC : Papers of James Madison.
A blank temporary commsn for this office was sent to the Southward before the last session of Congress, which was returned with Mr. Chambers’ name after the adjournment. As therefore this will be the second temporary commsn for the same person and office, qu. how far constitutional? [ Draft of reply in TJ’s hand: ] Kirby’s lre of Feb. 5. gives reason to suppose that Chambers’s commn was dated...
I have been honored with your favor of the 2d. Having concluded from that of the 26th. ult. that you would commence your journey homeward early this week I have ceased to forward the letters to you: the arrears are however now enclosed; with the exception of letters from Genl. Hull and Genl. Wilkinson, detailing their installation, and some other papers of a secondary nature, which I forwarded...
I have had the honor to receive your favor of the 26th. inst. The letter to Genl. Armstrong, with the new commission and credence, was forwarded to New York to the care of Mr. Gelston, with a request to forward it by a safe and early conveyance, if there was no prospect of overtaking him before he left the port. By this post I forward duplicates of those documents for signature and by the next...
It gives me much pleasure to have the enclosed letter from Mr. Monroe to communicate to you, as it removes the unfavourable impression of the disposition of the British government produced by his former one. Genl. Armstrong has received your letter accompanying his new powers. The enclosed letter from Mr. Merry will perhaps be as unexpected to you as it was to me, and that you may have the...
Be pleased to sign and return to me the enclosed letters for the Secretary of the Treasury. I enclose a letter, which as it appears to be addressed in the handwriting of your overseer, I have not opened. Mr. Duffield has resigned the commission of Judge of Orleans Territory on account of the effect of the climate upon his health. I have enclosed the resignation to the President. A short time...
I have received your favor of the 5th. and now enclose the papers accumulated since I suspended communicating them. The two enclosures with Mr. Monroe’s letter of 6 Augt. were not received with the copy you have read. I have sent to Genl. Smith the extract from Blakeley’s letter marked by crotchets, that the fraud may be repelled. The answer to Messrs. McKims’ complaint may perhaps be a...
I have the honor to enclose drafts of letters to Mr. Prevost & to Governor Claiborne. It is so improbable that it will be found of importance to convene the Legislative Council of Orleans before November, and that thus the erroneous opinion of Govr. Claiborne will stand in need of correction, that I doubt the necessity of answering his letter: if you should suppress the draft, be pleased to...
I have been honored with your’s of the 13th. from Gray’s, where I am happy you have secured a safe and agreeable retreat. I had kept a copy of your letter to Genl. Turreau. I think it adviseable to publish the list of bills drawn by Genl. Armstrong, because it will convey useful information to the claimants, will free us from the trouble of answering numerous enquiries, and it is not too...
I beg your excuse for the liberty I take in covering the two enclosed letters to your address. Since I have been here I have had the injudicious medical treatment I sustained at Washington corrected; and by the change of air and use of exercise there is a flattering expectation of my being restored to even better health than I formerly had. It is at present faulty only in the appetite, which...
The three Captains, whose protests against L’Eole are herewith, came from Anapolis a few days ago to lay their complaint before you. They told me, that her commander set off for Baltimore shortly after their arrival at the former place without giving them an opportunity of demanding compensation, and that none was offered. I advised them to return to their vessels and proceed to the several...
I very much regret the accident, which retarded the dispatches from France. Upon the enquiry I made, after the receipt of your favor of the 4th. it appeared that they had been detained in the Georgetown Post office, from the monday on which they should have been forwarded to the succeeding friday, by the mistake of the Postmaster. All the letters and packets I made up for the mail on the...
I have received your letter of the 6th. inst. and enclose an answer for Mr. Wigginton. Mr. Lee’s statement accompanies it. If Mr. W. be innocent, it is necessary to suppose that his assurance to the latter was founded on a fraud of which he was made the dupe himself, and that his privity in the corrupt agreement, by drafting it, is falsly testified by Erving and the broker. Mr. Lee on a former...
The present vacancy in the Custom-house here, it is supposed by some friends may produce another by promotion, for which I might without impropriety apply: and their partiality has even recommended me not to consider the Collectorship as an altogether impossible object. Less insensible than they have been to the weight of several objections, and among them to my own unworthiness, I take leave...
This letter is a duplicate of one J. W. had the honor to translate, in the summer, containing a proposal from a Mr. Heise to carry a colony from Germany to Louisiana. He now adds, that he has discovered a method of preserving potatoes, the secret of which he offers for sale. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
On Saturday evening arrived in this city Capt. Rogers of the Maryland, accompanied by Mr. Purviance, the bearers of dispatches from Messrs. Murray and Dawson. I have forwarded them to the Secretary of State, after they were perused by the Secretary of the Navy, the Secretary of the Treasury being absent in the country with his sick child. The latest letter from Mr. Murray is dated 9th. July,...
By the Frigate President, Capt. Barron, which is now in the River, with about 100 of the late prisoners at Tripoli on board, dispatches from Mr. Lear with the Treaty have been received. I have the honor to enclose copies of the most important of the former and also of the leading articles of the latter. A letter from Mr. Pinckney dated 24 July mentions that Mr. Bowdoin had gone to England. Mr....
Observing that the newspapers are circulating a imperfect account of the law-case of Baring vs. Christie, I take the liberty of referring you to it entire in 5th. East’s rep. 398, and at the same time to enclose a note I made some time ago, with a view to the extent of the operation of the exception to the passport, under present circumstances. The tenuity of this exception is such, as, in my...
I have been honored with your favor of the 9th. Mr. Newman, mentioned in the memorandum it contained, is living at the place described viz. at the Grange near Port Tobacco. It was on his return from a visit to that gentleman (whose wife is a Rhode-Island lady) that Mr. Ellery was attacked by Mr. Rutledge. I have communicated to Mr. Newman the nature and manner of the enquiry, and in your name...
Note. The instructions of Mr. Lear were sent to the Senate with the Treaty. The cooperation of the Exile was to cost no more than 20,000 dollars at the utmost, but it was referred to as little important. In the Departt. of State , there is no information whether the Exile’s family have been restored. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
A favourable opportunity offering for Philadelphia, I have returned Mr. Duponceau his books. I do not see what we can do to assist Murray; but I have acknowledged the receipt of his papers. Mr. Harvey has been advised to collect depositions to shew that his Son was forcibly or deceptively placed on board the Leander, which he intimates he would have it in his power to do. The two cases of...
I was duly honored with your favor of the 15th. and another since received from Mr. Hooper. I am sorry it was not in my power to aid him in drawing the money from the southward, as the arrangements of the Paymaster General and Quarter-master General did not admit of their accommodating him, and as no other branch of Government, as I can learn, stand in need of funds there. Agreeably to your...
Mr. Erving has acknowledged the receipt of your letter respecting the colony-trade as involved in the case of the Aurora. Your private letter to Mr. Monroe has been copied and partly transmitted with the enclosures from the Gazettes, to which I have added Mr. King’s letter in which they were received, whence it will appear that Lord Hawkesbury knew of Mr. King’s intention to procure their...
I am honored with your two favors of the 21st. and 22 inst. The wine has been received from Norfolk and is stored in your house. Not being certain that you have with you a copy of Mr. Livingston’s cypher I have enclosed the original to enable you to translate his confidential letter. Mr. Dawson, who arrived yesterday from the Northward, informed me that the Marquis gave out, on his journey...
J. Wagner sends his best respects to the President with the letter from M. Heise & a translation. He has received a letter from Mr. Madison, informing of his arrival with Mrs. M. at Philada. and that Dr. Physic thinks he can relieve her without any operation more painful than keeping the limb in a fixt posture. Mr. Merry proposes to go for Philada. to morrow. Capt. Murray proposes to sail in...
