M r Coles , whom I saw yesterday, informs me you propose to set out for Washington this day week. I have been waiting in the hope that little Benjamin would so far recover as that his mother might leave him. but his recovery, tho’ steady, is very slow. we barely discover every day some little additional proof of his getting better. I shall wait till the day after tomorrow in the hope of mrs...
It is long since I have had occasion to address a line to you, and the present is an irksome one. With all the discouragements I can oppose to those who wish to make me the channel of their wishes for office, some will force themselves on me. I inclose you the letters of several merely to be placed on the file of candidates & to stand on their own ground, for I do not know one of them...
Being to set out in a few days for Bedford from whence I shall not return till about a week before our Rockfish meeting, I have been preparing such a report as I can, to be offered there to our colleagues. It is not such an one as I should propose to them to make to an assembly of philosophers, who would require nothing but the table of professorships, but I have endeavored to adapt it to our...
Declining in every possible case to harrass you with sollicitations for office, I yet venture to do it in cases of science and of great merit, because in so doing I am sure I consult your partialities as well as my own. mr Hassler furnishes an occasion of doing this. you will find his character, his situation and claims stated in the inclosed letter from Rob. Patterson , whose integrity &...
M rs Randolph , Ellen & myself intended before this to have had the pleasure of seeing mrs Madison and yourself at Montpelier as we mentioned to mr Coles ; but three days ago mrs Randolph was taken with a fever, w
I send you the inclosed as you may perhaps not have seen it. Return it if you please. I have not yet seen the treaty, but suppose tomorrow’s post may perhaps bring it. Mr. and mrs. Randolph set out the day after tomorrow for the springs, to see if any of them can restore the nearly hopeless state of his health. Nil mihi rescribas. Attamen ipse veni. Vale.

Should not Claiborne be instructed to enter into a correspondence with Casa-Calvo, to insist on keeping things in their present state, and to let him understand that if any new settlement is made in the disputed territory, and particularly the one meditated on Trinity we shall break it up. DNA : RG 59—ML—Miscellaneous Letters.
I recieved last night yours of the 27th. & rode this morning to Colo. Monroe’s. I found him preparing to set out tomorrow morning for Loudon, from whence he will not return till Christmas. I had an hour or two’s frank conversation with him. The catastrophe of poor Lewis served to lead us to the point intended. I reminded him that in the letter I wrote to him while in Europe proposing the...
Mr Wirt declined the offices proposed to him. Mr. Lomax has accepted the Professorship of Law, and will open his school on the 1st day of July. He has paid us a visit, and his appointment appears to have given the highest degree of satisfaction to every body, Professors Students, Neighbors, and to none more than to myself. We have now 166 students, and on the opening of the Law school, we...
I return you the letter of DeWitt Clinton & your answer. I think that if he can deliver or send to Mellimelli the refractory members of his family under the ordinary laws of N. Y. it will be better; but that force should be employed if other resources fail. Airth’s letter & the anonymous one from Havanna are also returned. I send you a letter from the new King of Wirtemberg, one from some...
