He has died full of years and of honors, at the very hour which he would have chosen, if I know anything of his heart, had the decision been left to him. On the 4th. of July 1826, at , fifty years, probably to an hour, after he had signed the decleration of his country’s freedom,—at the very moment, when the whole...

I saw Col: Perkins, who said that the Directors could not determine until the sale and that this would depend upon circumstances .—By which, I understand—However you can conclude as well as myself.— I think, however, that one or other and possibly both pieces—are deemed important, and that they intend to purchase one or...
