I have duly received your favor of the 7th with the letter and Medal from Mr. Goddard, which you were good enough to forward under your cover. The use made of our expressed opinion on the temperance subject, denotes the peculiar zeal, with which its patrons are inspired. Should ardent spirits be every where banished, from the list of drinks, it will be a revolution not the least remarkable in...
Upon my arrival at home I discover that I cannot find the Letters referred to in the enclosed letter from Mr. Smith, and as his object is to republish them, I hope you will be good enough to lend him the use of any copies you may be able to spare him for the purpose, or to point his attention to the places where he may obtain them. The new office in which I am now engaged gives me unremitted...
The relation in which you stand to the Constitution of the United States has emboldened me to send an humble attempt of mine to defend it. It is with regret that I have seen in the public papers some accounts of your suffering health. This may render the controversies of the day very uninteresting to you—I have only to urge in apology for my intrusion my earnest desire to shew that even if...
Your favour of july the fourth, with the copy of "Horse Shoe Robinson" did not find their way to me until yesterday. This will explain the delay of my thanks which I tender you. Should the scanty limits to which my reading is reduced by my crippled health and faded vision prevent or retard the pleasure which these volumes promise, Mrs Madison will have an early enjoyment of this fruit of your...

I have received your letter of the 5th. instant in which you request my advice on the choice of a profession. Observing your decided bias in favor of the Law, and not dissenting from it, I need only express the pleasure with which find you so determined to aim at success, by distinguished qualifications for it—You will be apprized by better counsellors than I am, that you will have so much to...

I am well aware, My Dear Uncle, of the numerous calls upon your attention, yet as I am convinced it will not be withheld when any essential benefit can be derived from its engagement, I have been tempted to address you. It is to consult you on a subject too nearly connected with my future prospects to permit me to come to a decision without the advice of one, whose experience & good wishes for...
Your letter of July was duly recd. The recollections it so kindly expresses are very gratifying coming from one whose friendship I have always valued, & to whom I have been often indebted for attentions useful to me. I join in all your good wishes, for more tranquility & harmony in our public affairs: which will always be best promoted by a course avoiding the extremes to which party...
I received your very kind attention, which I ought scarcely to have anticipated from one so much above the most of mankind and so highly esteemed by all. I am entirely unable to express the thanks which I deeply feel are due for so great a favor. I have long wished to possess something from the pen of your honored self directed to me, even tho’ it were no more than your great name, which I...
