The House of Bird, Savage and Bird, in London, had, when they failed, property, to the amount of nearly £4000 Sterling, belonging to my father in their hands; for which I had drawn bills in October and November last—These bills are now returning protested for me to take up, with all the costs and charges upon them—I now write you, not with an expectation that you will find any property of...
I find by the newspapers that a Commission of bankruptcy has issued against Robert Bird, and as it is impossible for me to attend personally before the Commissioners to make proof of my debt, and demand my claim, I take the liberty of inclosing them to you, with an earnest request that you would present them for me, at the next meeting of the Commissioners which I think is to be on the 10th:...
I received last Evening your favour of the 23d:—The appointment of Mr. Schenck had been two or three days before confirmed by the Senate—I most sincerely lament your removal from the Office of Surveyor; but this act is exclusively within the power of the President, and the only notice he usually gives to the Senate of a removal is by a new Nomination to the Office—Such was the case in the...

The above is a list of debts, stated by the House of Bird, Savage and Bird, as due to them in New-York—If you can find among them enough to attach on a demand of mine for fifteen sixteen thousand dollars, I will thank you to have it done—If you can from your knowledge of the persons, let me know, what proportion of them promises to be good for any thing, I shall be grateful for the favour....
As your brother has heretofore intimated to mine, that it would suit his convenience to discharge his note of hand to me, by a conveyance of lands belonging to him, and adjoining the settlement upon which he resides, I am disposed, as well from the desire to make such an arrangement as shall best accommodate him, as from the wish to settle this affair in a manner advantageous to myself, to...
