I send you by this mail some of my recent lucubrations, of which I request your acceptance. I flatter myself into the hope that some of the facts & reasonings on them, will fully establish the soundness of the Hamiltonian System of policy, of which I have been the unceasing advocate for nine years. Until it is fully adopted by this Country, we shall never enjoy the high degree of prosperity...
Taking the white sheet in which the papers were wrapped, for a mere envelope; I did not notice your "iterum", until I came to put away my letters, after my last to you was despatched. The extract you desire, is now enclosed. Mr Gilmer’s information leaves it uncertain whether the contract be in this county, or with his uncle, in Liberty. To the latter, I shall write by the first mail. In the...
J. Madison has received the copy of the "Observations on the proposed amendment of Mr. Foot", with which Mr. Van Buren has favored him. Tho’ not according with some of the views applied to the occasion, he is fully sensible of the ability and advantage with which all of them are presented. J. M begs Mr. Van Buren to be assured of his great esteem, and to accept a return of his best wishes, in...
It is much to be regretted that most subscribers to newspapers are negligent in remitting the small sums which, although comparatively nothing to individual subscribers, form, when multiplied by thousands, as in my case, an amount of great moment. Struggling under many difficulties, I have been compelled to contract heavy debts, under the hope that those who have taken my paper will furnish...
Wishing a safe & early conveyance for a letter to Mr. Maury our Consul at Liverpool, I take the liberty of enclosing it with a request that you will be so good as to forward it by the 1st. vessel bound thither from Philada. & under the care of a friendly passenger, if there be such an one. Pardon this trouble & be assured my dear Sir of the continuance of my cordial esteem & of all my best...
My search among the papers here, has proved equally ineffectual. I shall see Mr Gilmer to-day, however; and, ascertaining from him where his late uncle’s papers are, obtain that in question with as little delay as possible. I was sorry to learn, on further enquiry, that the report concerning Mr Wirtembaker is unfounded: he certainly remains, I am told, during the next session. Perhaps,...
I have searched the papers here in vain, for the power of attorney; and it will be impossible to return to Monticello and get back, in time for to-day’s post. You may expect to hear from me again, by the next. Meanwhile, with thanks for the English papers, accept my affectionate salutations RC ( ViHi : Nicholas P. Trist Album Book). Docketed by James Madison.
Do me the favor to have the enclosed handed to Genl. Cocke, if he should be at your Court on Monday: if not, to let it go on to him by the mail. I take this occasion to thank you for the statement sent me for the gentleman in Kentucky. It came in good time, and ought not to have been allowed to interfere with any of your official attentions. With great esteem & friendly respects RC ( ViU ).
Your favor of Jany 29-30. with the interesting Gazettes then & afterwards kindly sent, have been duly recd. Your friend Mr Hagarty has not yet afforded me an opportunity for the welcome I shall feel a pleasure in giving him, over my threshold. Your advice to the Tobacco Planters is very good but it will not be followed for 3 reasons: 1. because good advice it apt to be disregarded. 2. because...
I have recd. your two letters of Mar. 30. and Apl. 1. the letter inclosing a copy of the contract with Mr. Long; to which I must ask the favor of you to add a copy of the power of attorney to Mr. Gilmer to enter into such engagements. I ought to have done this in the first instance. I feel the greater regret in imposing the trouble, now that I learn the new calls on your time in which it will...
