Mr. Birkbeck, a very extensive, and one of the most scientific and best practical agriculturalists of England, not liking the present state of things here, and having a very exalted opinion of our Country, and being also a great admirer of its political institutions, has determined to remove to and settle in it with his Family. Knowing your partiality for agriculture, I take the liberty of...
As you and Mrs. M. were so kind as to say, at the moment of parting, that you would be gratified in hearing from me, of my safe arrival in this Country, and how I was employing myself in it, I take up my pen to comply with a request not less flattering to me than kind in you both. As I expected, when I left you, I overtook my people the day before they reached Brownsville in Pennsylvania, at...
I enclose you a receipt for the 10$ you sent by me for the Agricultural Society of Albemarle. I presume Judge Todd will be with you by the time this will be received. I beg you will urge him to come by and pay me and my friends here a visit. He will make us all particularly happy by doing so. I propose to set out for the West on Monday or Tuesday (the 3 or 4 of April) and should be very much...
It was my intention, as you know, to have remained here but two or three days. But altho’ I have made every effort in my power to complete sooner the little business I had to attend to, I have found it impossible to do so, and indeed I have not even yet done so. But I am now compelled to hasten off in the morning, and to ride very rapidly, by the most direct route, to reach Illinois in time...
In consequence of the great quantity of rain which fell, and the muddy roads, and high waters, I had an excessively disagreeable journey from Washington, which place I left the morning after I wrote you, and barely reached this State in time to complete the business of my old office, and to be ready to enter upon the duties of my new one, by the meeting of the Legislature. Altho’ there was a...
I left the Green Mountain this morning, and am this far on my way to Illinois. Altho’ I am fatigued I cannot retire to rest before I express to you my great concern at not having seen you, agreeably to my promise, during your late visit at Monticello: I set out on Monday, the day of the Court, in the rain, but with the hope that it would not rain much, and that I might reach Charlottsville...
I have only time to enclose you my late message to the Legislature–and to say that I expect to setout in a day or two for Albemarle, and hope to have the pleasure of seeing you and Mrs Madison about the 20th of January, when I trust I shall have the happiness of finding you both in good health. Your friend RC ( ICHi ).
It was my intention to have made you and Mrs. Madison a visit about this time—but unexpectedly I find myself under the necessity of going to Richmond—to which place I shall set out this morning, and after remaining there a few days, shall proceed to Washington, and after staying there two or three weeks, shall go on to Philadelphia , and expect to return to Virginia in march or april, when I...
My Brother has transmitted to me your letter to him of May 29., from which I perceive that you are in error in supposing that you are due me any thing on account of the Bank stock sold you, beyond the amount of your Bond. So far from it, that if any thing were due to either, it should be from me to you, & not from you to me. For the Stock has been sold by you for less than I believed it would...
