I recd. your favor written the day before your intended departure from Washington, and complied with its contents. The inclosed letter from Dr. Bache, has just come to hand. I can not do better with it, than to give you an opportunity of extending to a distressed family, whatever accomodations may be permitted, by fidelity to the public interest. You will be the better judge of the case, as a...
I inclosed to you, a few days ago a letter from Docr. Bache stating the complaints of Mrs. Jones, agst. the proceedings of the District Attorney at N. O. I have just recd. & inclose one from Mrs. Trist which is more full on the same subject. I am aware, that the business may lie, rather with the Controler, than with you; but it is not amiss that it should be under your view also. As Grymes’...
I understand that the measures taking by the Bank of the U. S. for provisionally winding up its affairs, are likely to bear hard on the other Banks, and that the evil will be increased, by the drain on the latter for paying the bonds, as they become due in the hands of the former. Would not some remedy be afforded by a distributive transfer, (which would also have a provisional reference to...
Yours of July 14. with the welcome paper it covered, has been most thankfully recieved. I had before recieved from your office, and that of State, all the printed publications on the subject of the batture, that is to say the opinions of the Philadelphia lawyers & of E. Livingston himself, the publications of Derbigny , Thierry , Poydras , & the Pieces probantes. I had been very anxious to get...
I now forward the paper on the Batture promised in my last. It appears by Mr. Pinkney’s last letter that Brown the fugitive was in London & had engaged his attention. As no proceeding, answerg our purpose, can be had agst. him, other than a suit for recovering the debt, will it not be proper to forward to Mr. P. whatever documents may sustain the action, particularly his official Bond; or an...
I have recd. your several letters of the 15, 16, & 17th. The appointment for the Revenue Cutter at N. O. is approved & so noted to the T. Dept. and a Commission for Freeman ordered to be made out without delay. Poinsett promises, by his qualifications, every thing to be expected from a substitute for Gelston. I have sent the returned papers to the Dept. of State, that new ones may be forwarded...
I have recd. your favor of the 21st. Aug. I can not say precisely what use is to be made of the paper on the Batture, in its present form. If it be intended for publication, directly, as well as thro’ a report of the arguments at the Bar, some alterations will be proper. It appears that Brown, partly by the application of the Alien law, partly in consequence of his operations under a...
I have recd. your favor of the 5th. inclosing one from Mr. Aster. Whatever personal confidence may be due to him, or public advantage promised by his projected arrangement with the Russian Fur Company, there is an obvious difficulty in furnishing the official patronage which he wishes; whether the arrangement be regarded as of a public or of a private character. In the former, it would require...
Yours of the 10 th came safely to hand and laid me under new obligations for the valuable observations it contained. the error of 12 f. instead of 7. for the rise of the batture really sautoit aux yeux , and how I could have committed it at first or passed it over afterwards without discovery & having copied Pelletier’s plan myself, is unaccountable. I have adopted also most of your other...
I send you three letters from mr Fitz , improperly sent to me, but as they may contain something worthy your notice, I forward them to you. I believe I have before informed you that he is as purely honest & inoffensive a man as lives, and well qualified as a Surveyor. he lived with me a year or two. his letter of latest date must have been extorted from his good nature. M rs Jones has...
