I recollect with great satisfaction the many pleasant days, that in time of my departed Consort, we passed together in France, in England, and in America. And I now receive with peculiar pleasure your kind congratulations on a late event, which I devoutly pray may be propitious to this great and growing Country. Though I am every day awaiting my Summons, I should be very happy to see you here,...
I am much affected with your kind letter of the 4th. You are not alone Sir, in your change of opinion since 98. great numbers have since been convinced that at the sacrri sacrafice of my Popularity and my office I saved this Country from a ruinous and Foreign War and Civil War—. I thank you Sir for your two candid and civil letters—and for your kind congratulations on the choice of a...
I recollect with much satisfaction the friendly and familiar intercourse between Major Fuller his Lady and Daughter with my family in the days of my blessed Consort, and this recollection made your kind letter of the 14th. more pleasing and acceptable.— I thank you Sir for your Volume of defence which I perceive has softened the asperity of public opinion very much; I am no longer capable of...
Is not your lively imagination a little exalted, you certainly have exalted my name to a greater height than it would ever have arisen to, without your sublime compliment—I presume you have laid aside the thought of building an Hospital for despair on that height—I am sure my name ought not be associated with despair How I long to make you a visit, but I cannot get out of my Chamber yet, here...
I thank you for your kind congratulation of the Feby. 17—which you have fortified with so many strong reasons, none of which I can I contradict, or wish to refute; I have great reason to believe that the public opinion has changed with respect to me, since the year 98—great numbers have since been convinced that I saved this Country from a ruinous Foreign and Civil war, and some of them...
My father has this moment returned from Mr Owens lecture & informs me that he has not recieved any communication from the Senate relating to the confirmation of his nominations. If they have been acted upon he is not informed of the fact. The nominations you have seen—Concerning their confirmation you know as much or more than he does— Your’s &c 1/2 past ten o’clock— DLC : Peter Force Collection.
I have placed your Note in the hands of my father who has this minute returned home & he directs me to inform you that the Senate have not acted upon any one of the Nominations made to that body by him—And that of course the information mentioned in your note is incorrect. Perhaps it may allude to the confirmation three days since of some nominations made by Mr Munroe. If you do not possess a...
I have transmitted your letter to Mr Adams but in total despair of success. The heads of Department are jealous of the interference of the President in the appointment of their clerks. I never could get in one clerk into any office during the whole of my administration. You must apply to the heads of Departments if you have any hopes of success. The Representatives from N. York will probably...
John Quincy Adams was born in Braintree, now called Quincy, in the year 1767, in the white house, near the foot of Penn’s Hill, which you sir, once inhabited. I had been attending Plymouth Court the whole week under the greatest anxiety. Returning on Saturday afternoon from Plymouth, I met Dr. Tufts on Hingham Plain between Dr. Shute’s house and Mr. Cushing’s tavern, who informed me that I had...
I enclose you a letter from honest Spafford. I do it with great reluctance but he has so much merit in his New-York Gazetteer that I wish something could be done for him. I know however the difficulty indeed the impossibility that a President should get into any of the offices a single clerk. I tried to get Mr Dalton into an office in the Treasury Department. I proposed it to the Secretary who...
