I have received in the due course of the Mail your letter of June 2d. notifying my election as an honorary Member of the Erodelphian Society of the Miami University. The pamphlet containing a catalogue of the names of the members has since come to hand and it affords me pleasure that mine will be associated with them. In accepting the honor conferred I beg leave to present my thanks to the...
I have received your very friendly favor of the 15th. enclosing the Diploma of Honorary Membership of the United States Naval Lyceum. As I acknowledged through Captain Ridgely, soon after its receipt, the notification transmitted by him, that the Society had conferred on me this distinction, it may suffice to ask the favor of your communicating to Lieut. Hudson the safe receipt of the diploma....
I have received your letter of June 17th. with the paper enclosed in it. Apart from the value put on such a mark of respect from you in a dedication of your "Life of Mr. Jefferson" to me, I could only be governed in accepting it by my confidence in your capacity to do justice to a character so interesting to his country and to the world; and I may be permitted to add with whose principles of...
Having some time ago obtained your permission to inscribe my life of Mr. Jefferson to you, I herewith send you a copy of the form in which I shall execute my purpose, if no part of it is deemed objectionable by you.

I have just recd. your letter. Having entire confidence in the judgement & accuracy of Col. Miller, with respect to your services in the battle of Bladensburg, I could not, if my impressions were less in accordance than they are with his statement, withhold my good wishes that you may be successful in obtaining an enlargement of your means for a comfortable subsistence—These wishes cannot but...
I have received your friendly letter of May 7th. and the box of Sherry wine I owe to your kindness came safe to hand the day before yesterday. I thank you for both. Your letter I observe is written by your own hand. I wish I could answer it in like manner; but though your years somewhat outnumber mine, my fingers are de facto older than yours, and are at present, as is my general condition,...
J. M. with his best respects to Mr. Robertson thanks him for the copy of his speech delivered in the H. of Reps on the 5th & 6th. of April. In this present condition of J. M. the combined effect of his very advanced age & of indisposition much increased within a short-period he has been able to make himself but slightly acquainted with some of subjects embraced in your speech. He may safely...
