J. Madison requests a consultation with The Heads of Depts. to day at 1 OC DLC : Papers of Richard Rush.
You will observe in one of the inclosed letters several legal points stated by Commodore Patterson relating a distribution of property taken in the Fort on Apalachecola. Will you be so good as to examine them, and communicate the result? The report of the Land Commander has not yet come to hand but will probably not be delayed. It may throw light on some of the facts. In consequence of your...
As I have taken the liberty of throwing on your attention the business of fixing on a site for an Observatory at Washington, I pass the inclosed to Mr. Dallas thro’ your hands. You will see that the turn which the subject is likely to take, will relieve you from further trouble with respect to it. I have recd. your favor of . We regret that we shall not have the pleasure of seeing you, and we...
Col: Lane informs me that Mr. Hassler has selected for the scite of an Observatory which will have relation to the survey of the Coasts, the square North of the Capitol, which includes the spot on which the House formerly Gen. Washington’s stood; and that Mr. H. considers it necessary that the entire square should be exclusively appropriated to the object. I can have no doubt of the intrinsic...
Your favor of the 29. Ult: with the remarks on Mr. Wirt’s letter came duly to hand. The latter were communicated to Mr. W. with an intimation, that if he had any further observations to make on the subject, they might go in the first instance to the Treasury Dept. It is more than probable that your view of the subject will be satisfactory. I inclose for your perusal a letter from Judge Tucker....

The President, Requests the honor of Mr. Rush’s Company at dinner Tuesday the 19h. inst. at 5 o’clock The favor of an Answer is desired DLC : Papers of Richard Rush.

Not being possessed of the answer from the War Dept. referred to in the inclosed, I can not compare the grounds of it, with the opinions to which it has given rise. It would seem however that the Soldiers in question must be entitled to such a discharge as will seem to them all the recommence stipulated for serving during the war. Will you be so good as to take a legal view of the subject, and...
I can not do better with the inclosed communication than to put it into your hands, with a request that you will give effect to the ideas of Mr. Dallas if you concur in them, by a few lines to Mr. Dick, who appears to be well disposed to sustain the interests of the U. S. I see by the newspapers that J. B. had passed thro’ Baltimore for Washington. I have recd yours acknowleging the rect. of...
I am informed thro’ confidential channels, that Joseph Bonaparte is arrived at N. Y. under an assumed name, that he considers it proper to report himself to this Govt--that he would set out from N. Y. on tomorrow (tuesday) accompanied by Commodore Lewis, for that purpose; and be in Washington on thursday or friday on his way to Montpelier, under cover always of an assumed name. The motive to...
I return you the note of your conversation in the year with Miranda. It presents him in a favorable and interesting point of view, and it can scarcely be doubted that he possessed a mind of more than an ordinary stature, improved by diversified acquirements. I suspect however that his greatest talent lay in giving them a bold relief, by a colloquial eloquence. In the single conversation I had...
The Convention with G. B. the original of which Mr. Brent will shew you, raises the question whether a call of Congs. before the 1st. Monday in Decr. be expedient. The shortness of the period of difference, and the season of the year it embraces, seem to render the measure of so little practical moment as to dissuade from the inconvenience & expence of it. As the question however involves...
I have recd. yours of the 2d inst. with the papers inclosed with it, and thank you for having so comprehensively provided for the objects of mine to which it is an answer I return the Proclamation which was properly varied from that of 1806, which had more in view than the one now in hand. To avoid questions or feelings of State Prerogative, I have pencilled for erasure the words specifying...
I return the Ed: Review with my thanks for the opportunity of perusing the chapter on France, which has all the interest which you attach to it: notwithstanding the occurrences subsequent to its date. On casting an eye over the Chapter on corn laws, I was surprized to see so acute & learned a Critic puzzled in a case which appeared so plain & familiar. I have noted it in the margin of page...
The inclosed letter from Commodore Patterson inclosed to me by Mr. Homans, presents several points on which your advice to him may be useful, so far as the instructions already issued from one or other of the Departments be found inadequate. It seems entirely proper that naval protection of it can be spared, should be employed agst. the Carthaginian Corsairs, in pursuance of the rules lately...
The occasion which led to your favor of this morning merits all our congratulations, and I heartily join in those you have expressed. The terms of the peace will I hope be satisfactory to our Country. With the events of the war, they can not fail to command the respect of every other. … Be so good as to return the two papers after a leisurely perusal. The newspaper is the latest that has...
