Letter not found. 5 July 1811. Mentioned in Jay to JM, 11 July 1811 . States that it would be agreeable to him if Jay’s request for permission to travel to Europe in a U.S. vessel could be granted but the secretary of the navy has made arrangements that will not allow private passengers.
By the Mail of this day, I forward you a single copy of the Review of Montesquieu , I hope you will find it executed in a style of neatness not discreditable to the work nor to the American press. By printing it on a larger type and a smaller page, it might have been made a large volume, but I believe it will be considered as preferable in its present form by those who prefer a book for its...
4 July 1811, Chelsea. Presumes on JM’s “known goodness” to make “a few quiries, and suggestions.” Asks if there is reason to suppose that any nation endowed with superior resources and imbued with the rights of man can remain in colonial subordination “and suffer her resources to be drawn from her by a remote power.” Is it possible that Spain’s American provinces might return to a dependency...
4 July 1811, Mount Locust, Jefferson County, Mississippi Territory. “This strange app⟨licatio⟩n will I have no doubt surprize you—but dire necessity compels me to it.” Relies on JM’s “known philanthropy” to save him and his three children.

I have seen with very great concern the late Address of mr. Smith to the public. He has been very ill advised both personally and publicly. As far as I can judge from what I hear, the impression made is entirely unfavorable to him. Every man’s own understanding readily answers all the facts and insinuations, one only excepted, and for that they look for explanations without any doubt that they...
