I have just received the enclosed letter from Mr. Morris, & as it relates altogether to the subject of your enquiry, I have thought it proper to enclose it to you. I am sorry that it should be so unsatisfactory. It is probable that I shall hear again from Mr. M. on this subject; in which event, I will write you immediately. Should you still desire to engage my services on this or any other...
I send you by the mail which will bring you this, a copy of the pamphlet containing your letters, with the additional documents respecting Mr. Jefferson’s opinions, suggested to me by Mr. Rives. 2000 copies had been printed before these were handed to the printer. He then printed 500 Copies with the extra appendix. And the latter will go with all future copies. I received a letter from Mr....
Having discovered from the direction of the debate that it would be unnecessary and probably imprudent to use your letter to Judge Roane, in the discussion in the House of Delegates upon the subject of federal relations, and being hardly pressed by the opposition to my measures respecting the connection of the waters, I decided to suspend my communications with you till the end of the session,...
I regret, in common with all the Board, that your present delicate state of health should deprive us of the gratification of your company at the University. Col: Monroe, on his return home, will hand you the letters you were good enough to lend me, of which I have taken copies & filed with my papers. I have determined to publish in some of our newspapers, Chaptal’s two chapters on the Tariff,...
On my return home I found Mr. Tucker growing worse, and you have since heard of his death. Shortly after this afflicting scene had occurred I was compelled to hurry down to Corrottoman to procure some additional evidence in support of our claim for slaves carried off during the late war. It is only within the last few days I have had time to attend to my promise to you. Before I left home, I...
Since writing you my late letter from this place by Col: Monroe, I have received from the post office at this place, a letter from Mr. Richard Morris of Hanover, under date of 12th inst. of which the following is an extract: "Your letter of 2[3d]. of last month, in consequence of being mislaid in Mr. Johnson’s office, did not reach me until yesterday friday last. It will not now be in my power...
For some time past I have abstained from writing to you purely because I believed you might not wish to leave letters unanswered, and the state of your health rendered such drudgery painful if not injurious to you. I venture now to write a few hasty lines upon the subject of the debate in the House of Delegates on the 20th inst. upon a motion to print your letter to the Editor of the N. Am....
Your favor of 18 Ult., reached me by the last mail. On the subject of the Tilghman white wheat, I deem it proper to write you by the return of the mail, in order that you may not be put to inconvenience on my account. Having an Agent in Baltimore for the sale of my crops below, I have thought it would be best to get him to send me a parcel of the Tilghman wheat. I presume it can be had in...
Your favour of 2d. ult: was received in due time by the mail at this place. The copy of your letter to Mr. Townsend of South Carolina was communicated to Mr. Pleasants, agreeably to your permission: & it would have been returned to you in conformity to your request, before now, had it not been for my indisposition, leaving me barely time to attend to my indispensable duties at this place. I...
I have put off copying my letters which you were so good as to send me under cover of yours of the 4th March, and I have done so with the less hesitancy, because I had much writing to do in a debilitated state of health, and I supposed that their immediate return was of no importance to you. I write now, just on the eve of my departure for Corottoman, to say, that as it will be a convenience...
