Information having been recieved in October last that many intruders had settled on the lands of the Cherokees & Chickasaws; the letter from Genl. Dearborn to Colo. Meigs was written to have them ordered off, & to inform them they would be removed by military force in the spring if still on the lands. These orders remain still to be given, & they should go to the officer commanding at...
In the wild range which Tatham’s head takes, he often hits on good ideas. Those explained in the within letter merit real attention. He knows the localities of that quarter; & should the idea of an artificial bason on the Middle grounds be found impracticable (for want of foundation) Lynhaven bay, deepened at it’s entrance becomes the sole resource for defending the Chesapeake; & the...

Yours of the 20. & 21. were recieved yesterday. I have sent on the letter to Turreau without alteration. It was as little as either the stile or matter of his letter deserved. I shall be with you probably on Wednesday. Mr. Barlow stays with us till then, & returns at the same time. The bearer is Mr. Chisolm the bricklayer who wished to see you before your departure. Dinsmore has suggested a...

I return you all your papers except Irvine’s which I have not yet entirely read. As far as I have gone they abate much of the hopes which Montgomery’s letter might have excited. It is true that Irvine’s Erving’s opinions must be influenced by the French versions at Madrid, & Montgomery’s by the popular rumors always afloat in such scenes. No answer surely shd. be given to Bollman, nor should...

I send you a letter of Short’s for perusal, & one of Edgar Patterson asking what is already I presume provided for. One of General Armstrong which I do not well understand because I do not recollect the particular letter which came by Haley. I presume the counsel he refers to is to take possession of the Floridas. This letter of June 15. is written after the cession by Carlos to Bonaparte of...

I return you Pinckney’s letter the complection of which I like. If they repeal their orders we must repeal our embargo. If they make satisfaction for the Chesapeake, we must revoke our proclamation, and generalize it’s operation by a law. If they keep up impressments, we must adhere to nonintercourse, manufactures & a navigation act. I inclose for your perusal a letter of Mr. Short’s. I inform...
