29401Catullus No. V, [24 November 1792] (Hamilton Papers)
For the GAZETTE of the UNITED STATES. It was my intention to have closed with my last paper, the discussion of Mr. Jefferson’s conduct in the particulars which have been suggested; but the singular complexion of the last number No. IV. of a series of papers originating in the American Daily Advertiser, obliges me to resume it. As if bold assertion were capable of imposing any thing for truth,...
For the Gazette of The United States To Aristides The “ American ” to confirm the inference resulting from the official connection between the Secretary of State and the Editor of the National Gazette, appeals to a conformity of the political principles and views of that officer, with those which are sedulously inculcated in that Gazette. If this conformity exists, it certainly affords a...
To Aristides Though there would be no great hazard of mistake, in inferring the Writer of the Paper under the signature of Aristides, from “the appropriate and prominent features” which characterise the stile of that paper; yet I forbear to imitate the example which has been set with too little decorum, by naming or describing the supposed author. The similitude of stile or any other...

Paris, “rue neuve Ste. Martin. No.18.” 3 May 1791 . It is the tender and sad cry of a father and mother for a son that moves them to appeal to TJ on account of one of their children, who departed from Le Havre 12 May 1790 under care of the Scioto Company.

I beg leave to acknowledge the receipt of your esteemed favor of 9th. Ultimo, which has been detained at Baltimore till two days ago.

Your esteemed favor of 2d. March 1822, in answer to my letter of 20th February preceding, duly came to hand.

Sep 1800 was obtained; but...

Dieppe, 20 June 1789 . Has no doubt TJ is aware of scarcity of wheat and other grain that has existed in France too long.

Dieppe, 24 July 1789 .
