I have the honor to present to you a Silver medal which I have had struck commemorative of the Certificate which you Signed in aid of the Glorious cause of Temperance on which are Symbols of the happy effects of Temperance and of the direful effects of Intemperance and on the reverse the Certificate with facsimiles of the Signatures thereto and I beg your acceptance of it and am with profound...
Your letter of the 4. instant having gone by mistake to Montpellier in Vermont, has but lately come to hand. In my 85th. year, and under continued inroads on my health, I can not fail to be excused from undertaking a compliance with its request; for which indeed I could not otherwise be at all qualified, without a fuller knowlege of all the considerations which ought to influence the choice of...
Your favor of the 2d. inst gave me great satisfaction, I thank to you very much for your kindness of recommending me for the Professorship vacant at the Virginia University. I have since written to Mr: Joseph C: Cabell, Rector of it, in more detail, as by the Prospectus the place is to be filled by the 1.st Septr. I delayed troubling you again upon it, to try if possible to save from...
I have received your letter of the 20th. informing me "that I have been unanimously elected President of the Washington National Monument Society, in the place of its late lamented President Cheif justice Marshall." I am very sensible of the distinction conferred by the relations in which the Society has placed me; and feeling, like my illustrious predecessor, a deep interest in the object of...
Your favour of the 2d. inst. was handed to me at the post office in Richmond, shortly after my return on the 16th from a short and hasty journey to the North. It did not find me at the University as you expected. I was unable to attend the last meeting of the Visitors, in consequence of my absence on the journey to which I have referred, which I deemed of higher obligation in the circumstances...
Your valued letter of Novr. 4th. was recd. in due time and would have been promptly acknowledged, but for the daily expectation of being able to thank you at the same time, for the article so kindly provided for my crippled feet during the rigor of Winter. It happened, that a mistake which forwarded the article to Richmond instead of Fredericksburg delayed its arrival, ’till it became...
I have the honor to inform you that you have been, this day, unanimously elected President of the Washington National Monument Society, in the place of our late lamented President, your friend & co-patriot, Chief Justice Marshall. That great and good man felt a deep interest in the object of this association; the erection of a great National Monument to the memory of him who was "first in...
I have long since intended writing to you to let you know that altho we are situated at a distance I have not forgotten our early friendship and the esteem in which I continue to hold you in my sincere and affectionate rememberance—I have not been wanting in my frequent enquiries in reguard to your & your families health—I am gratified to hear by the late information I have recd., that it is...
I have received Sir, your letter of the 13th. and regret that I cannot find among my papers the letter of Chief Justice Marshall to which you refer. Such a letter was certainly presented to me, and left an impression very favorable to your talent in taking likenesses. As your portrait of Mr. Marshall doubtless exists and his opinion of it can thro’ his family be obtained as well as their own...
I have been near committing a great Faux pas. The Times of the 9th reported merely that the Seamen’s Enlistment Bill went through the Committee and the report was ordered to be received on Wednesday following. As none of the points were discussed in the House I concluded of course that it was the Bill of Sir James Graham to which Lord John Russell had before assented and which in my letter to...
