Owing to some accident I did not receive your letter of the 28. untill after Mr. Rush left me, which I much regret, as it deprivd me of the opportunity, of conferring with him, on the answers to be given to those of the French & Russian ministers, which accompanied it. I am astonished at the contents of both, as they put us to trials, which, if either of them had good sense or moderation would...
Col: Hawkins, will accept the offer of agent, for the boundary under Porter; and there is reason to think that they are on a very good footing. His name is "Samuel". He had better be sent in to day, and it will fortunate if he & Col: Austin go together. Consuls , I.C. Barnett (of Jersey) for Paris- Septimious Tyler of Connecticut for Bayonne- Joseph Ficklin, Kentucky, for St. Bartholomews-...
The Secretary of State, to whom was referred several resolutions of the House of Representatives of the 21st ult, requesting information on certain points relating to the French decree of the 28th April 1811, has the honor to make to the President the following report: In furnishing the information required by the House of Representatives the Secretary of State presumes that it might be deemed...
I have yours of the 12. Mr Rush and I shall set out for your house on friday eveng, with intention to get as far as Fairfx ct. H. that night. We shall move slowly, so that we may not arrive, before monday or tuesday. The letter to the dey of Algiers, will, as you will find, by the translation of his, sent to you, yesterday, require much attention. The state of things there, and in Engld., and...
I have not seen Mr. Tazewell & therefore can add nothing to what I have already said respecting genl. Taylor. I am under a strong impression that Winder, Howard & Taylor ought if possible to be appointed. Perhaps, if there should be any difficulty in the business, it may be well, to send in only a part of the nominations to day. By the above, I do not mean, that Parkers pretentions ought to be...
I send many letters recd. by this mail in favor of Mr. Beaseley, which I have not had time to peruse. On the subject of the marshall, to be appointed at New York, I shall direct, by next mail, a blank comn. to be forwarded to you, and it is probable I may be with you, by the time it arrives, as I shall leave this, according to present prospects, then, for your house on my way to Washington, to...
I intended to have written you by the two last mails but was interrupted at the moment I had allotted for the purpose. In truth I had little to communicate, which it was worth troubling you with, while ingaged in packing up & preparing for your departure for this place. Mr Cutts intimated to me that you would probably leave home the beginning of this week, which, coinciding with your intention...
I enclose you a letter from Col Humphreys & also one from Col. Pike. I am glad to see by the former that some expln. can be given of the proceedings in Connecticut different from what has been imputed & suspected. Mr Serurier was with me, to day, & repeated what he had before stated of the cause of delay at Paris, & intimated that if any plan could be devised within the limit of his govt’s...
The unceasing fall of rain has so broken in on my proposd visit to, & return from Washington, to take Mrs Monroe there, as connected with the movments of my whole family, that I hardly know how to act in it. Among the papers in the packet addressd to you, is a letter from Beasley, deserving of attention. It shows to what a shameful length the practice of trading by license between France &...
I wished to obtain an interview with Bizet before I answer’d your favor of the 16th., that I might communicate to you something decisive relative to its object. Owing to his engagments at some distance, and to an injury which he lately received in blowing a rock, I could not see him till today, when I explaind fully your wishes respecting his services. He seemed to be much gratified at the...
