On the receipt of yours of July 29, I forwarded the Book intended for Mr. Davis, and take for granted it got safe to hand. He met with the ready concurrences of the Board in making him the successor to Mr. Lomax for one year, with a prospect of the permanency, to which I doubt not the probation will recommend him. I need not say that whatever be the future change of Theatre meditated by...
I recd. in due time yours of Mar. but suspended an answer till I could avail myself of a genealogical sketch made out some years ago by a relative of the family, which might furnish the information you wish. This paper I have not yet obtained. As soon as I can do so, I will make the intended use of it. In the mean time I beg you to accept this apology for the delay; with my thanks for your...
I recd in due time your letter of Aug. 19. On what relates to my manuscript papers, I could only repeat what I have heretofore observed. With respect to an Edition of the Federalist, with remarks saving it from an identity with that covered by a copyright, alth I am sensible that the work under that title would admit of pertinent comments having that effect, yet I can not conceal from myself,...
In the letter inclosed by the last mail, I omitted to insert in the margin, the extract from the "Federalist" referred to in the text. Be so good as to supply the omission by subjoining in the margin the following transcribed passages from No. 39.* *No. 39. "It is true, that in controversies relating to the boundary between the two jurisdictions, the tribunal which is ultimately to decide, is...
I take the liberty of addressing you on a subject of some interest to the public, & I feel assured, that the solicitude which you have always manifested for the public good, will induce you to excuse me, if you do not approve my suggestions. It has occurred to me, that a favorable period is at hand, for the friends of the University, & of our system of public education, to adopt to the extent,...
I inclose the letter promised. You will perceive that some of the topics deserved more development, than the state of my health, and the limited time would permit. The right of the States collectively to hold the States individually to a bargain, a breach of which by a single one would throw the whole into confusion, and essentially affect the interests of some of them, merits an illustration,...
I have duly received your letter in which you refer to the "nullifying doctrine" advocated, as a Constitutional right, by some of our distinguished fellow citizens; and to the proceedings of the Virginia Legislature in -98 & 99, as appealed to in behalf of that doctrine; and you express a wish for my ideas on those subjects. I am aware of the delicacy of the task in some respects, and the...
Your letter of the 20th. having passed on to Charlottesville instead of stopping here at Orange Ct House, has been but just recd. I doubt not the truth of every thing stated in the communication which pleads for the object you have at heart. But having been constrained to adopt a rule not permitting me to interpose in the manner you request, and having declined to do so in instances of...
I inclose $500, which with the balance in your hand, will make up $1000, for the Bank. Should I be under a mistake as to the amount of that balance, be so good as to supply the defic[icy] & the advance shall be immediately replaced. I am anxious that the approaching dates when the Bank will accept a payment without loss to the debtor, may be availed of. I have retained a memorandm. of the Nos....
I have recd. yours of the 11th. inst: & wish I could give the information it asks with the desired particularity and certainty. I believe, though I may possibly be wrong, that no answers to the Virginia Resolutions of -98, were given by States, other than those enumerated in the pamphlet you have. I have not the means of ascertaining the fact. If any instructions were given by the Legislature...
