I have recd. your favour of March 21st. Mr. Wharton is a young man of virtue modesty and industry—he is pliant and docile—but I have observed no indications of invention or what may be called Talents . He is what I recommended him for, a proper person to copy and assist a man who has much business—but I do not think it probable that he could perform more than what is commonly expected of a...
Lieutenant Colonel Fleury has credit on the Books of the Treasury as a foreign Officer for Seven thousand, five hundred & Seventy Dollars & fifty eight Cents principal, for which there exists an appropriation; this sum will therefore be paid at any time on the production of a power of Attorney and the original Certificates. If however a transmission of the original Certificates would be...
I have recd. your favours of the 16th. & 17th. —that of the 16th I communicated to Mr. Marshall & Mr. Sedgwick; the first has yet expressed no ⟨op⟩inion; the last mentioned Gentleman has been inclined to support Mr. Burr & this I find appears to be a prevailing & increasing sentiment of the Federalists—with what degree of seriousness the intention is formed & whether it can succeed are...
From what has passed between Mr. McHenry & your self and the agents of the War Department at Rhode Island, respecting the establishment of a Hospital there, I perceive that there exists a misapprehension which so far as it affects me, I am desirous of explaining. The Act of July 16th. 1798 for the relief of sick and disabled seamen, imposes a Tax on Seamens wages, which is to be applied 1st....
The President has decided that the Treaty shall be ratified & transmitted for exchange immediately and in my opinion he has decided right. I regret that this was not done long since, as I presume much of the party spirit which has been excited would have been prevented. A government like ours can rarely take a middle course on any point which interests the public feelings—delay for whatever...
Pursuant to your directions I herewith transmit the original statement of Jno. Blanchards Account of New Emissions, which was settled at the Treasury in Sept. 1790. It is true that he paid the following sums in New Emissions to Heza. Wetmore for which Credits are passed in the accounts of Jno. Pierce Esq. late P Master General viz 1781 July 1st 50.   Sept. 10th 377.30 being in the whole Four...
I am favoured with your Letters of the 3d. & 19th. instant. You will have thought it strange that the first has not been acknwledged—it has been out of my power: the effects of a new Climate want of exercise and too much application to official business, produced a serious indisposition, which disabled me from writing for a forth-night; I am now recovering, though I remain weak. I had...
I herewith transmit an extract from a Law of the Commonwealth of Virginia passed on the 26th. of Decr. 1792. Also extracts from a Letter written by Jno. Hopkins Esq. dated Jany 3d. 1793. & from a Letter written to him from this office dated February 22d 1793. These papers will shew, that the Commonwealth of Virginia authorised the Treasr. to issue from the State Treasy. certain Certificates of...
You may render great service by corresponding occasionally with your acquaintances in Congress, prompting them to vigorous measures, & dispelling whims & hysterics. Mr. Lawrence & Mr. Bingham have frequently created much embarrassment—The former is now firm—the latter troublesome —both want stimulants occasionally. No person here can say anything to them with advantage. Congress appears to be...
