New York, 23 Oct. 1787. Introduces Mr. Jarvis, a “Gentleman of New England” who brings this letter and a copy of the proposed plan of government; refers TJ to Jarvis for news on that subject. Is sending a full account of the convention in another letter of this day which is being carried by “the Chevalier Jones” who intended sailing on the packet but changed his passage to another ship because...
Being cut off from the occurrences in the Assembly I have nothing to write you upon, but the prospect as to my reelection. The Apostacy of one of our Delegates in the Convention, and the wavering conduct of the other, have re-animated the Spirit of Anti-federalism in the County to such a degree that much work is to be done before my object will be secured —the issue of the ten days for which...
I do myself the Honor to inform Yr Excellency that the business of the Merchant’s account & the sales of Hoaksley’s store are brought to a final close. The multiplicity of the Merchant’s accounts rendered the business more tedious than I apprehended. I am now on my way to Richmond, & will from thence transmit all the papers relative to either affair. I left the transmission till I shall arrive...
§ From Edward Carrington. 25 November 1805, Canton. “I have the honor to inclose you, a Duplicate of the Deposition of John Gardnier, first Officer of the Ship New Jersey of Philadelphia, stating the outrage committed onboard that Ship, by the Officers of His Britanic Majesty’s Brig, Harier, commanded by Captain Ratsey, and Duplicates of two Letters, address’d to Captain Ratsey on the subject...
I am just favored with yours of the 2d. Ult: also with that covering the report of the Attorney Genl. Accept my thanks for both. The subject of an Excise did sometime ago excite much apprehension here owing to its being contemplated, and industriously represented by some, with all the horrible circumstances said to attend that of England: much conversation has been held upon it through the...
Since mine of the 4th. Instant, covering some information upon Manufactures, I have received an additional report from General Stevens, Inspector of Survey No. 2, which, together with his letter, and a Copy of one he received from one of his Collectors I now do myself the pleasure to enclose. It was my intention, at first, to have obtained the Reports of all the Inspectors, and then have made...
By the last Mail I had the Honor to receive yours of the 29th. Ult. communicating the Presidents offer of the place of Comptroller of the Treasury. Calls to public Office from that source can never be received by me but with immotions of the highest reverence and gratification, dictated as they uniformly are by motives of public good, they constitute the most flattering evidences of merit,...
My going to Virginia this winter is indispensible. It is probable, from the state in which events has placed the delegation, that I shall not have an opportunity of going after the session commences without leaving the state unrepresented. Upon these considerations I have determined to seize the present moment and shall set out early in the next week. In the mean time I think it proper to give...
I have seen the decision of the House of R. upon the Quaker Memorial, nearly I suppose as the Committee reported. From the lengthy debates however and the Matter of these debates, I had been led to suppose it possible at least that the report was a different one asserting something like a power in Congress to meddle with emancipation. The very circumstance of such a subject being taken up in...
Previous to your Offer of the Office of Surveyor General to Genl Wood, some communications had taken place between you & General Marshal as to a proper person to fill that appointment which, as has been usual between him & myself, were made known to me—it was agreed in our examinations of characters within our knowledge, that Colo. Wm Heth would do great justice to the Office, and Genl...
