Before I recd. your favour of the 6th. instant I had a plain conversation with Mr. McHenry and represented the necessity of having you called into service. It is unnecessary to repeat arguments—you must know their nature. The Presidents permission has been applied for by Mr. McHenry as I presumed —since his illness Colo. Pickering has reinforced the request. You must my friend come on with the...
I shall send by this Post a Letter to Keeper of Debtors apartment in New York granting the priviledge recommended in your Letter of yesterday. As there are probably many persons ⟨liable⟩ to be held in close confinement, ought not the Governor, State Judges, and District Judges to direct the removal of the Prisoners to some Gaol in the Country? I am acquainted with the state of a delicate...
At the close of the last week or on Monday of this, a Letter was recd. by the Secy of War from the President covering the Commissions of the Major Generals, dated on one day . This circumstance taken in connexion with others which preceeded, fully justify an opinion that the rank may [be] considered as settled in the order in which the appointments were made—of course that you are established...
I have recd. your favour of the 20th. with Twenty Dollars. The sum I lent you was Thirty Dollars. Yesterday I sent you a small bill which you forgot to pay. No Consul can be recd. at present. The result of all the enquiries which I have been able to make is, that a small sum, might be raised by the gradual sale of 7½ ⅌ Cent Stock at par but that there can be no certainty, that a Loan would...
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...
I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 2d instant. The business to which you allude, relates to an application made to me by the Surveyor General, for a party of Men to assist in marking the Indian boundary line agreeably to, General Waynes Treaty; but, as the Surveyor General omitted to designate the time when and the place where the men would be required, I have written to...
Enclosed I have the honor to transmit to you, the copy of a Letter from the Surveyor General of the United States in Answer to my enquiries respecting the time when and the place where the troops required to assist in marking the Indian boundary line would be wanted. The opinion of the Surveyor General in relation to this business, confirms the expediency of directing the Commanding Officer in...
I have before me your favour of the 1st. instant. I have some knowledge of the circumstance referred to in Genl. Schuylers Letter. It is a fact that Mr. Shoemaker has either seen such a Letter from Mr. Jefferson as is described, or recd. such evidence that a Letter of the kind existed, as made a strong impression on his Mind. It has I know been proposed to make application to Mr. Smith’s son...
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 have recd. your favour of September 26th. and have made a few notes, which I will revise and send to you to morrow. The style & temper is excellent, no observations occur to me upon the first part of the Draught. You will judge of the expediency of sending the Letter, from the information which you possess of the public opinion. I have no lights beyond those which I suggested as from...
