I received some weeks ago from our excellent friend Mr. Corrêa, his farewell to Virginia, and to all whose kindness has made it dear to him. It was natural that the friendship with which you had honored him, and the repeated civilities he had received from you, should be remembered when he was about to leave our country. He especially charges me, to preserve in your memory, the sentiments of...
In the mission on which, you, and the other visitors have deputed me, I must of necessity rely a good deal on the representations of others abroad. It is of great importance therefore, that I should have the assistance of men of talent, learning, and integrity. Excuse me then for asking of you the favor to give me two letters, one to our Minister Mr. Rush, and the other to Sr. James...
It was my intention on leaving England, to have drawn up during the voyage, an extended report of all my proceedings on the mission with which I was entrusted. A most boisterous passage, with continued & severe sickness prevented me, and since my arrival, I have had neither leisure nor strength for the undertaking. A short account of my pecuniary transactions however, I feel myself bound to...
I am penetrated with regret at the death of your illustrious friend, and I would fain call him mine— Mr. DuPont (de Nemours) —It is a consolation to me that I had redeemed before his death every promise which I ever made him.—His treatise on National Education was translated, of which I apprized him before I heard that he was indisposed. So long as he lived his own genius preserved the...
I have now the honor to inclose you the subscription to the central college . I have set about manuscript papers in some other counties with a request that they be forwarded to you or M r Madison . Some subscriptions will be made in Fauquier . P.S. one gentleman from particular circumstances has subscribed 300$ less than he at one time promised—which makes the whole amount that much less than...
I inclose this letter to Mr. Jefferson both because it is an injustice to Ticknor to deliver even a message from him in any other words than his own, and because I am sure it will give him pleasure to hear young Terril thus spoken of by such a man. In the ‘ darkness visible ’ of Richmond , it is a happiness, a privilege, to be illuminated by the radiance of such a mind. If the enemies of...
I have heard with great pleasure of your convalescence. by winter you will be quite well to enjoy the triumph of the university which is now beyond all danger. It is highly probable that you will be consulted by friends from Philadelphia as to a successor to Dorsey & our excellent friend Doct r Wistar . Should you be—I must beg of you to converse with Colo: Randolph on the pretensions of...
It is never without self-reprehension that I make a request which can for a moment draw your mind from the great concerns in which it is constantly engaged. But you are the only person living who can answer a very interesting question which has arisen in the general court. A citizen of Virginia has been indicted before that tribunal for a felony committed in George Town in the district of...
Mr William B. Page of Frederick has put into my hands as counsel a long record, from which I find, that on the 3 d Augt. 1787. a judgement was obtained by yourself and Mr Eppes executors of Mr Wayles against Col: Byrd for £96.. 12. 9.. 3. and costs—when assets. Mr Page is executor of Mrs Byrd who was executrix of her husband: he will soon be able to pay the debt: the attention of counsel will...
The court of Appeals has given judgement in one of the usury cases [Taylor. v. Bruce] and I hasten to apprise you of the result. I should have done it with more pleasure had the decision been different. I do not understand the particular nature of the transaction in which you are indorser for Col. Nicholas. I must therefore give you an outline of the case of Taylor & Bruce leaving to you the...
