I ought to have answerd yr. last favor sooner, relative to an advance made me sometime last year at Fredbg., but many interesting concerns have prevented it. That advance was I presume made to Mr. Jones, as I recollect writing by him to request abt. that sum to be applied to my use there. I think too you advanc’d him the cash as he paid the debt wh. I owed on his arrival at Fredbg., tho I...
I have just taken a transient view of my affrs. here for a day or two, & set out back to Richmd. to day. It wod. give me great pleasure cod. I extend my trip to yr. house but that is impossible, and altho’ I had this excursion in view for a fortnight past yet I cod. not ask you to meet me; as I expected that pleasure when Mr. Jeffn. arrived. I wish to be back to see some of the southern...
Mr. Alexr. Stuart brother of Archd. has desired me to make known to you his pretentions to a seat in our council with a view to yr. friendly aid in obtaining it. It is impossible to refuse saying of him what I think, especially as my acquaintance with him is of ten years, commencing with his study of the law & continuing since. He is a sensible young man, sound in morality & political...
… The conduct of the people on this occasion was exemplary, and does them the highest honour. They seemed aware the crisis demanded of them a proof of their respect for law and order, and resolved to show they were equal to it. I am satisfied a different conduct was expected from them, for everything that could was done to provoke it. It only remains that this business be closed on the part of...
I lately made a flying visit to albemarle with my family in hope the change of air and scene might be useful, but cannot say that much benefit has been derived from it. Mrs. M.’s health is in a very delicate state, but hope it will soon improve. Majr. Butler passed to the so. lately resolved to aid the republican cause all in his power. From the north we have nothing new except the publication...
I Just Write you a few lines Which Will Inform you that my Family and Freinds in these parts are all Well. I pray this may [find] you and our Freinds in Orange in the Same State. I have Nothing New to Write. We have had a Very Favorable Winter not having had More than 7 or 8 Inches Snow added Altogether. We are Very Anxious in this Country to know Who is to be our President We Understand that...
I wrote you two days since & sent the letter to Charlottesville. It is only this moment that I recollect I omited to enquire whether you had heard of the overseer you promised to endeavor to engage for me. I shall take no step relying on him till I hear from you. Perhaps he wod. be satisfied with £50. as it is in a healthy country, and the entire command of the plantation in his hands. But you...
By the bearer Mr Bell and you will recieve the packages mentioned in the inclosed Memo. Annexed you have a list of the packages received a few days ago from Phila. but not having a Bill of Lading I do not know whether they are right. However as they agree with the Manifest of the Captn. I hope & have reason to beleive they are so. Not a Vessel offers for Philadelphia. In consequence of the Low...
I tax you with H.’s pamphlet, requesting that you will return it by the post to Mr. Jeffn. You will be so good as tell me frankly yr. opinion of the footing upon wh. my correspondence with that Scondrel stands, and whether it becomes me to pursue him further. Mr. Dawson will be at yr. court I think on the 25. wh. I presume is yr. ct. day. If I can I will meet him at yr. house. My narrative...
If you can conveniently I will thank you to furnish to Mr. Jones for me abt. £45. wh. I am to pay at Fredbg. under an engagment wh. cannot be delayed. I have adjusted my affr. with Pickett by the payment of ⅔ ds. the amt. and otherwise securing him in the balance in three months, so that I am freed from that difficulty. This was done by the sale of my military land. I shall probably be down,...
I have yr. favor of the 27. (last) in wh. you inform me of yr. engagment with Mr. Macgee to overlook my business in albemarle, with wh. I am much gratified. I believe the one on the mountain will remain, but whether he does or not I shall put great confidence in Macgee, and altho’ in case he stays and in consequence Macgee’s attention be confined to the lower place, I shall if you advise raise...
You were so kind as intimate some time since you cod. accomodate me with a draft for two or three hundred dolrs. at Phil. At that time I thought I cod. get along without it, but the excessive charges attending the transportation of my furniture, far exceeding the real value inclines me to accept the draft if you can now furnish it with perfect convenience to yrself. I have read the speech &...
I take the freedom of sending you a Newspaper; and by next post, which will not be till Monday, I shall send you a copy, all but the first Sheet, of the conclusion of my Prospect. This trifle should have been done long since; but I find difficulties in getting the printer to move. I should have had not less than Seven Columns, this week, in the Argus and Examiner. But I have been curtailed to...
I observe in the Aurora a letter signed Junius wh. seems to incite the respectable marshall of France to continue his essays agnst me in a manner best calculated to forward the views of his prompter. I suspect that piece was written, either by the volunteer aid or the inspector genl. I am surprised such a piece shod. have been introduc’d in that paper without a comment. I gave Mr. Dawson the...

I have yours of the 23d. ulto. by Fredbg. We had hear⟨d⟩ of yr. indisposition and inferrd from yr. not mentioning ⟨it⟩ it had been slight, and were happy to learn from Mr. Maco⟨n⟩ that altho’ it was more serious than we supposed, you h⟨ad⟩ recovered entirely yr. health. Every ⟨an⟩ticipati⟨on⟩ of th⟨e⟩ views of the admn. in this State seems to have been verified, or so many facts established as...
I recd your Favr. enclosing Mr Patton’s Letter, and am greatly obliged for your Kindness in making those necessary Inquiries respecting the Land. The Sum demanded is beyond my Means. I could not, in my Purchase exceed 2000 £ for the Land alone; the other necessary Expences informing a Settlement would be considerable, & must be attended to as well as the Land. Mr Geo. C. Taylor has written to...
Letter not found. 12 September 1797. Calendared as a three-page letter in the lists probably made by Peter Force (DLC, series 7, container 2); however, no correspondence has been located between JM and Charles Louis, baron de Montesquieu (1749–1824), grandson of the famous French philosopher.
I returned from Richmond yesterday (wednesday) and found my child better than when I left him. The dangerous simptoms of the thrush seem to be past, and the hooping cough has nearly left him, so that extreme debility, is his present chief complaint. Perhaps I do wrong in sending you the enclosed letter, in reference to the veiws of the author, but as I know no harm can come of it, especially...

I recd. your Favour from Richmond, & am greatly obliged for your friendly Information respecting the Land purchased by Mr Patton. I should have answered it sooner, but wished first to see the Result of some kind of Negotiation that had already been opened for Land not far from you. That appears now to be at an End; & if I could get that Part of Patton’s Purchase, which you have described upon...
I am thus far on my way to Philadelphia, from whence I shall write to you as soon as I have any thing worthy communicating—in the mean time I will thank you for your sentiments about the situation of M. Lyon, and what steps we ought to take as it regards the constitution, and policy. I have some reason to think that another attempt will be made to expel him. Accept my best wishes! RC ( DLC )....
The Preservation of wheat against the Ravages of the Fly being of such Consequence to you, & to your Neighbourhood, I thought every Hint that promised any Success would be agreable to you. I have therefore inclosed an Extract of a Letter, which I found in a late Paper, from Norfolk. The Paper I beleive does not circulate in your Part of the Country. The Character of the writer seemed to render...
Have you ever recd. yr. wine from Mr. Yard. Presuming you have not, I intimated in a letter by Dr. Bache to Mr. Yd., requesting mine to be forwarded to the care of Geo. Jeffn. Richmond, that if yrs. had not already been, I doubted not it wod. be agreeable to you it shod. be by the same route. I hope we shall receive it, since to me it will be a most acceptable accomodation having had none of...
Your bill for 75 dollars appeard & was paid the 11th of last month, I have had the painters estimate it will amo[u]nt to 50 dollars at the utmost, the good it will do the house will far exceed the expence, which I will be as saving in, as if my own property—as soon as I have your answer I will begin. With great respect I am sir Your obedient Servant RC ( DLC ).
I had almost resolved to pay you a short Visit, during your Stay in Richmond; but my Engagements in College will not permit me to indulge my Inclination. Perhaps Mrs. Madison & yourself could spare the Time to spend a few Days with us, before your Return to Orange; if so, be assured, it would afford the greatest Gratification to me, as well as to my Wife, who remembers you with the warmest...
I presume you have seen Mr. Adams attention to me in his reply to an address from Lancaster. I send you however a copy in the enclosed gazette. I also send an extract from an oration delivered by Judge Addison of Pensylva. wh. seems to have collected all the calumnies heretofore circulated agnst me. My friends in Phila. think some attention due to the publication of this judge & Mr. Dawson...
