The expressions of esteem contained in the letter you have taken the trouble to write me, are very dear to me: notwithstanding your advanced age I cherish the hope of being permitted to see you again, and of saying a few words to you on the Subject of my somewhat extended travels, which are rather out of the usual course. I am at present examining a very interesting Country, where the Potomac...
The death of the late Chief Justice Marshall having justly produced a great sensation & a desire to retain every memento of so great a man, many resolutions on the subject have been passed by different bodies: the Bar of this city have decided to procure a portrait. You may perhaps remember that Mr. Marshall wrote you pending the session of the Virginia Convention in Richmond to revise or...
You will, doubtless, think me guilty of much assurance, as I certainly am, to address a note to so honored and worthy a gentleman as you, without ever having seen you, and consequently having no acquaintance with you as a private gentleman. But I have, thank God, been a youthful witness and admirer of all your virtuous deeds and services as a public officer and Chief Magistrate of a Free...
My increasing infirmities and fading vision have retarded my thanks for the copy of your valuable Geological Report, to which I have been obliged to give a perusal less careful than I am persuaded it merits, and I must add without a scientific capacity to do full justice to it.

I have received your letter of the 3. Instant. My handwriting is now so varied by the effect of rheumatism on my fingers that it may be best to comply with your request by its ordinary character when in health, of which the enclosed is a specimen. I well recollect your father as a cotemporary in public service, and the personal respectability which he combined with that of his representative...
I have just drawn a check on the Bank for $60. Having only fifty to my credit there I must request the favor of you to deposit the additional ten to with friendly respects please enquire for a box forwarded for Mrs. M. by the Steamboat & send it on— FC (DLC) .
I have duly recd. your favour, postmarked the 9th. inst. containing your suggestion on the subject of my manuscript papers. I am fully aware that these, as far as worthy of the public eye, could pass to it, under no editorial auspices with greater advantages than under yours; and I have a just sensibility to the friendly dispositions, as far as these could be properly indulged, with which the...
Casting around an enquiring look for the Causes which have lead to our present Internal National Embarrassments ; I find, next to the main or principal Cause, the total want of qualification in the President, is, the admission on the part of some of our ablest Statesmen, that the National Bank is Unconstitutional—The Cabal 1. finding this a weak Point, immediately attempted its subjugation—But...
