I have received information that measures, imposing serious restrictions on our navigation and commerce, are taking in the North of Europe, with a view to guard against the disorder called the yellow fever. It is represented that these restrictions are likely to be generally extended in that quarter thro’ the means of a concert, promoted by one of the most influential powers and it is probable...
I had the honour to write to you, & also to the President of the United States on the 1st of May l ast, since which, no alteration in the posture of our affairs, has taken place. I avail myself of ye. earliest opportunity of transmitting you, co pies of the treaties of Peace, concluded b etween the Emperors of France & Russia, and the king of Prussia, this day published by authority. I have...
I have the honor to enclose you a very important decree of the Emperor of France made at Berlin on the 21st. ulto. and this day published by authority at Paris. I have not time to offer any observations upon the subject of it: But shall content myself with forwarding a number of copies to the different sea ports in hopes that by some vessel which may be found ready to sail you will receive the...
I cannot resist, Sir, the disposition which I feel of writing to you, from the renewed instance of your politeness & condescension, in readily dispensing with my attendance at Washington, from motives, which refer to my Health: this indulgence, rather than to accept of my Resignation, demands from me my most respectful acknowledgments; and you will permit me upon the occasion to present you...
As the present posture of our affairs in this country may require, that you shd. receive information from every source by which it may be obtained, I have thôt it my duty to state to you the result of such observations as I have made relative thereto, since my late arrival here; & perhaps I cannot do it better than by enclosing you a copy of a letter written to David Williams Esqr. at his...
Being quite unwell when your obliging letter of the 23d Ultimo & its enclosures reached me, I embrace the first moment of convalescence to thank you for them. Your letters to me while in france, with one exception, intercepted by means as I have reason to believe, as unjustifiable as dishonourable, would have afforded me much satisfaction, had I have duly recd. them; but left as I was without...
I take the liberty of acquainting you with the sudden death of Mr Lewis oBrien, late Consul of the U States for the Port of St. Ander in Spain. He was at Madrid making reclamations of the property of our Citizens, condemned in the lower [prvat] Courts, where he died in a most distressing manner on the 24th of April last, as will appear by the enclosed letters. I was not personally acquainted...
Since I had the honour of writing to you on the 26th. Ulto., I have had a return of my complaint, which has abundantly proved the prudence of not having undertaken the Journey to Washington, as I could have wished: my indisposition was however but short, & I consider myself at present, much better than I have been for these three months past. I am now more particularly to acquaint you, that my...
Since my arrival in europe, I have had the honour to address you on the 18th. of June, & 8th. of July from St. Ander: on the 31st. of July & 3d. of Septr. from London: on the 7th. & 27th. of dec: feb. 17. & mar. 9th. from Paris; since which I have received your circular letter of the 24th. of July; & your Letter of the 18th. of mar. last by Mr. Skipwith, wherein you acknowledge the rect. only...
§ From James Bowdoin. 18 December 1805, Paris. “I had the honour to write to you very fully on the 7th. inst. by Capt. Jarvis of the brig dispatch a fast sailing vessell bound from Rochélle for Savannah in Georgia: I understand it is probable, that this Letter may reach Rochélle before Capt. Jarvis may have sailed, wch. gives me the oppty. to transmit to you this Govt.’s acco. of a late...
