Your favour of march the 21st. with a letter from Col: Hurd came duly to hand. It is a long time that I have had an agreable acquaintance with that gentleman, and the best opinion of his virtues and talents. He cannot have better advocates than his friends Govr: Langdon and Judge Livermore, for any appointment in New Hampshire or Vermont, if that state should be admitted into the union. How is...
I received your Letter, before my Departure for Philadelphia, but had not time to answer it. It is not probable that any Special Agents will be employed in the Business you had in contemplation. The Board consists of Men, who will Study Æconomy, in that as well as in all other Affairs committed, to their Charge; and therefore the Loan Officers or Collectors or some other known Character will...
It would give me great Pleasure to comply with your request, and to be of Service to you, in any way in my Power: but I am not at Liberty to communicate the most distant hint to any one, relative to the Subject. One Anecdote which flatters my Pride, if it does not comfort my Conscience, among the many mortifications of my Social Feelings, which I am obliged to Submit to, I will relate to you....
I thank you for your kind Letter. The Elections in Massachusetts have done honour to the Principles and Dispositions of the People. The Error of my old Friend is no surprise to me, for although I knew his the Abhorence of Jarvis in his heart, I have lately seen his Versatility in so many Instances, that his Character, always Subtle fine and and Slippery, is now become lubricated to a degree...
I thank you for your favour of the 25th Ult. and its Contents. A Governor of a State in a Solemn Speech to both Houses, at the opening of a session, expressing a private Opinion only of a Treaty and that in the most rude insulting and unmeasured Language is such a Complication of Imbecility Hypocricy and Superannuation, As I never heard of. I pray that my Country may take from me all...
I have just recd your favour of the 15, by Mr Coolidge and Mr Parkman. There has been no Vessell up far a s Boston a long time. When there is I will endeavour to Send your fifty Pounds of Clover Seed, with my own, if I can get any. It is said it will be very dear. It is to be lamented that a Man of Such popular Talent and such an ardent Spirit as Dr Jarvis, should be always disposed to Seize...
After wishing you many happy and Proserous Returns of the Season and a Speedy mitigation of The Severity of the winter I wish to know whether you have any Letters from my Sons, I have Seen a Short one from Thomas to his mother of the 5th October which Came I Suppose by the vessell from Rotterdam and gave me hopes that more might Come by the Same Oppertunity I Should be Obliged to you if any...
After wishing you many happy and prosperous returns of the Season, and a Speedy mitigation of the Severity of the Winter, I wish to know whether you have any Letters from my Sons. I have Seen a Short one, from Thomas to his Mother of the 5th Oct. which came I Suppose by the Vessell from Rotterdam and gave me hopes that more, might come by the Same Opportunity. I Should be obliged to you, if...
I have recd your favour of 30. Ult.—Thank you for your good Wishes. I know not the reason why the Chroniclers should wish that Mr Jefferson would not accept the office of V.P. The Reason is obvious why the “highest Partisans” on the other Side shd. wish so.—But neither the Jacobins nor Antijacobins, knew the Temper and Character of Mr Jefferson So well as I do. I have known these Seven Years...
