I have to acknolege the receipt of your two favors of May 26. and 29. which came to hand in due time and relieved my mind considerably, tho’ it was not finally done. During the vacation we may perhaps be able to hunt up the letters which are wanting, and get this tornado, which has been threatening us, dissipated. You have seen the speech and the address, so nothing need be said on them. The...
In several of the public Gazettes I had read your note to the Editor of the Philadelphia Gazette, with an extract of a letter addressed to me of the 8th instant; but it was not until yesterday, that the letter itself was received. It is not difficult, from the tenor of that letter, to perceive what your objects are; but that you may have no cause to complain of the withholding any paper...

It was sent by Lord Grenville to Mr Hammond; by him put into the hands of the Secretary of the Treasury; by him shewn to the...

No mail, at two oclock yesterday, had been received in Alexandria from Philadelphia since the 29th Ulto. I am sending up this afternoon to see if the expected mail of this day is in; altho’ I have little hope of it, as the violence, & continuance of the rains since thursday last, has been such, in these parts, as to sweep every thing before it; & to do great damage to the gathered & growing...
On Wednesday evening, I sent the packet, now under cover with this, to the Post Office in Alexandria; to be forwarded next morning at the usual hour (4 oclock) by the Baltimore mail; but behold! when my letter bag was brought back from the Office and emptied I not only got those which were addressed to me among which yrs of the 27th was one, but those also wch I had Sent up the evening before....

My letters for the Post office in Alexandria, had been sent off some hours before the enclosed dispatches were put into my hands, by the young Gentleman whose name is mentioned in Govr Clintons letter to me, also forwarded.

My letter from Baltimore, and the one written by Friday’s Post, dated the 22d instt renders it in a manner, unnecessary for me to add more on the score of the treaty with G. Britain, or on the movements which are taking place thereupon, in different parts than to inform you, that if circumstances should make it more eligable for me to repair to Philadelphia, than for you to come to this place,...
Both your letters, dated the 17th instt, found me at this place, where I arrived on Monday. The letter from the Commissioners to you, I return; as I also do the Gazettes of Pittsburgh & Boston. The proceedings at the latter place are of a very unpleasant nature: the result I forwarded to you from Baltimore, accompanied with a few hasty lines written at the moment I was departing from thence;...
At this place, and in the moment I was about to step into my carriage, I was overtaken by an Express bearing the enclosed dispatches. As the application is of an unusual & disagreeable nature; and moreover, is intended, I have no doubt, to place me in an embarrassed situation, from whence an advantage may be taken; I forward it to you with a request, that you, the other two Secretaries and the...
I have to acknolege the receipt of your favor of Apr. 11. and I now inclose the letter of Mr. Short on the diplomatic arrangement which you desire.

Your letter of the 22d instt I received yesterday morning.
