My expenses abroad having exceeded unavoidable the compensation allowed me in the station I held & the mismanagement of my estate in my absence, make it an object to me to command on loan the sum of about 10,000 dolrs. I should therefore be happy to receive the accomodation from the bank provided it would be willing to make it, on su ch terms as I could accept, or indeed comply with. To enable...
I have recd. yours of March 30th. with a list of the documents lately submitted to Congress, and the papers sent you from this place. I return to you those latter papers, on a presumption that you have not copies, of them, or rather the originals; if you have they can be of no use to you, & in that case I will thank you to send them back, or that you will send me copies at your leisure. My...
I omitted to state in my letter of Saturday last that the copy which I then sent you of a proposition, which Mr Pinkney & I presented to the British comrs. relative to impressment which was mentioned in our letter to you of Novr. 11th. 1806. and which, as I believe, we afterwards renewed to Mr. Canning, was a copy only of the amendment which we offered to your original project: you will I...
I had the pleasure to receive yesterday your favor of the 21. instant. I have examined since, all my papers & cannot find a copy of the project of the article relative to impressment which Mr. Pinkney & I presented to Mr. Canning after the rect. of your insructions by Mr Purviance for the correctness of which I can vouch. I presume it was the same in effect, with that which we presented to the...
I have the pleasure to enclose you my letter on the subject of the treaty, in conformity with what passed between us when I was at Washington. I have had many other objects to attend to or I should have sent it to you much sooner. I have to repeat what I mentioned to you at Washington, that if there should be any remark in it which in the slightest degree departed from the friendship & respect...
These considerations induc’d us to sign the treaty & submit it to the wisdom of our government, after obtaining the best conditions that it was possible to obtain. We were aware that in several points it fell short of the just claims of our country. But we were persuaded that such an arrangement was made of the whole subject as justified us in the part which we took. In the rejection or...
It appears by your letter of May 20th: 1807, which was forwarded by Mr. Purviance to Mr. Pinkney & myself at London, & received on the 16: July, that you had Construed several Articles of the treaty which we had Signed with the British Commissioners, on the 31st. of December, 1806, in a different sense from that in which they were conceived by us. As the Course we were instructed to pursue by...
You promised to send me the documents which I left in your hands when at Washington as soon as copies were made of them, or Mr. Rose delivered to you the originals. As it will be necessary for me to recur to those documents in the letter wh. I intimated to you it was my duty to write you on the subject of the treaty lately signed by Mr. Pinkney & myself, with the British commissrs., and it is...
I ought to have answer’d sooner your favor of the 5th., but I have been so unsettled since my return, and so much interrupted that I have equally neglected my friends & my private affairs. I have recd. the note for 300. dolrs. wh. I did not wish you to have sent, being altogether ignorant of the claim wh. I have to any sum beyond what I had before recd. This however will be adjusted between us...
I arrived here to day, with my family in the American ship the Augustus in 28: days from Portsmouth. It is my intention to set out for Richmond without delay, & leaving my family there, to proceed thence to Washington, for the purpose of giving you all the information in my power respecting our affairs with the British government. We are much exhausted by fatigue & sickness on the voyage, &...
