Accept my acknowledgments for your favor of the 18th. instant. The printed remarks inclosed in it are already I find in the Gazettes here. It is much to be wished that the discon[ten]ted part of our fellow Citizens could be reconciled to the Government they have opposed, and by means as little as possible unacceptable to those who approve the Constitution in its present form. The amendments...
Your favor of the 9th. was not received till it was too late to be answered by the last mail. I now beg you to accept my acknowledgments for it. The Newspaper paragraph to which it alludes discoloured much the remarks which it puts in my mouth. It not only omits the occasion which produced them, but interpolates personal reflections which I never meant, wch. could not properly be expressed,...
[ New York, October 26, 1789. On November 30, 1789, Coxe wrote to Hamilton : “by way of answer to the queries I had the honour to receive from you, the 26th of last month.” Letter not found. ]
Your obliging favours of the 30th of November, and 16th instant, with the communications accompanying them, have been duly received. Accept my best acknowledgments for the attention you have paid to my request; and believe that I mean not a mere compliment, when I say that your compliance with it has procured me much useful information, and many valuable observations. I have not leisure to add...
I have been some days in debt for your favor of the 21st instant. Accept my thanks for the Medal and copy of your new Constitution inclosed in it. I have delivered to Mr. Jefferson the remarks on a standard of measures, and communicated to him the several other interesting matters which you mention. The former will be disclosed to no one else, but remain in his hands for the purpose intended....
I have just received your letter of the 27th of April. Yours of the 6th of the same month also came to hand in due time; though peculiar reasons prevented an earlier acknowledgment of it. The appointment of his assistant is, by the act establishing the treasury department, vested in the secretary himself. The conviction I have of your usefulness in that station, and my personal regard for you,...
Reposing especial trust and confidence in your integrity, diligence, and abilities, I, Alexander Hamilton, secretary of the treasury of the United States, in virtue of the power to me given, by the act entitled “An act to establish the treasury department,” do constitute and appoint you assistant to the said secretary: To hold and exercise the said office during the pleasure of the secretary...
Mr. Jefferson’s compliments to Mr. Coxe: he [takes] the liberty of requesting him thro’ Mr. Madison to […] partake of his little dinner to-day. He shall be happy if Mr. Coxe can do it, and pardon his asking him to so unceremonious a one. RC ( PHi : Coxe Papers); upper right quadrant torn away; endorsed by Coxe. Not recorded in SJL . The suggestion that TJ’s little dinner was probably connected...
If I understand the statements rightly the money paid by the Collector of Baltimore namely 30000 Dollars is still an advance; but as nothing more is now asked, and as it is presumeable the expences of the expedition and supplies to the end of the year will exceed the sum advanced all is well. I have only conjecture as to what will be the situation of the troops after the termination of the...
Inclosed is a letter, which came under cover to General Knox, and which he sent to me as probably intended for me—on opening it, it appears to be your’s & I send it accordingly. Yrs ALS , Papers of Tench Coxe in the Coxe Family Papers at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
