Inst. and am much obliged by your information as to the state of public opinion in the Eastern & Middle states in regard to the approaching presidential election. In return I will give you such as I possess Southwardly; yours however must be far the most perfect, as to particular circumstances, from your late tour through the...

[ Richmond, July 5, 1799.

I beg you to be assured that I have not been inattentive to your request in regard to an Aid de Camp—From my more early enquiries I was apprehensive that the appointments in Virginia would not afford you a choice to your satisfaction; But finding that Colo. Bentley was about, from time to time, to have meetings with his officers at this place, I thought it best to wait until that better means...
Since I enclosed you, on the 31st. Instant the plan which I had formed for Recruiting divisions of Virginia, I have seen Lt Colo. Bentley who satisfies me that Abingdon which I arranged as in Colo. Parkers circle, more properly applies to the other. I have therefore written to Colo. Parker that this Station is to be considered as arranged in Colo. Bentleys circle, and that this plan is so far...
I received your letter of the 3d. Instant inclosing two plans which have been in contemplation for a division of the State of Virginia into districts for the Recruiting Service, and mentioning that it was probable I had before recd. from the Secretary of War one of the plans, A, as a guide in forming Contracts. I have never recd. from the Secretary of War either of those plans. In a letter...
I have been honored by the receipt of your letter of the 30th Ult. and take pleasure in complying with your request as far as my information enables me. In our Congressional Representation we have eight Federal Members towit, Genl Marshall, Evans, Lee, Powell, Robt Page, Goode, Gray, Parker—the first six are certainly in real disposition firm supporters of our Government and the administration...
Knowing the anxiety of your mind on the subject of General Marshalls election I can not omit, for a moment, after being ascertained of the State of the polls, to communicate to you the satisfactory intelligence of its having issued fortunately by a majority of 108 Votes. So small a majority after so long and so active a canvas, is an evidence of the deep root which jacobinism had taken in the...
I have had the honor to receive your letter of the 5th Instant. Observing the omission to which you refer, in the list of appointments, I was led to read the Act for augmenting the Army; and the defect noticed by the Secretary of War in the paragraph of his letter which you have been so good as to quote, gave rise to an anticipation in my mind, of the cause he mentions. I had not noticed the...
By this evenings Mail I had the honor to receive your letter of the 15th Instant, and am impelled by the very great sensibility with which it fills my mind, to reply to it immediately. It is impossible for me Sir, to disobey your call to any station which, in the threatened crisis, you may suppose me capable of taking. were I even insensible to the honor resulting from the circumstance, the...
I have had the honor to receive your letter of the 28th Ult. and have delayed a reply over a mail in order that the event of a meeting which took place in this City on the first instant, and upon the issue whereof the subscriptions have been closed this afternoon, might enable me to be the more perfect in my information. The events which have lately unfolded themselves have unquestionably had...
By this evenings Mail I had the Honor to receive yours of the 7th Instant covering one for Mr Booker who is now somewhere on the south side of James River in the line of his business. He was apprised, before he left this, of the probability a letter from you arriving by this Mail, and will certainly put himself in the way receiving it. In the mean time I can assure you of his considering it as...
I have had the honor of receiving your letter of the 26th Instant covering one for Mr William Booker; and on conferring with his Freind & immediate correspondent in this place, learn that he will probably return to his residence, about 18 Miles from hence, being now engaged abroad in building Machines, about Sunday or Monday next. I have placed your letter under cover of a few lines from...
Richmond, January 3, 1797. “I have just now seen Mr Wade Mosby of my Neighbourhood in the Country, whose Agent … has just returned from N. York where he has employed you in a Suit to which Mr Mosby is a party. He wishes me to say to you what his Character & circumstances are. I have known him from his Childhood to this day, and can with confidence say he is a man who has supported the...
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...
I have been honored with your favor of the 1st Instant, and have the satisfaction of seeing in the papers, the decision of the House of Representatives on the Resolution for carrying into effect the British Treaty. I presume the struggle will not be renewed on the appearance of the Bill—the party in opposition has evidently been weakened by the memorials received before the passage of the...
The meeting of the people of this City & vicinity, of which I did myself the Honor to inform you a few days ago, as being in agitation, took place the day before yesterday, the 25th Inst. and the enclosed paper of Davis of this date, contains the proceedings of the day, also a very correct statement of the manner in which they were conducted. While I enjoy the satisfaction of being enabled to...
The late Votes of the House of Representatives which have just reached us, and from which it appears that appropriations are not entended to be made for giving effect to the Treaty between the U. States and Great Britain, have in my opinion brought our political maladies to a crisis. The disorganizing machinations of a faction are no longer left to be nourished and inculcated on the minds of...
I have been honored with your favor of the 12th Instant, and with Sincere pleasure, complied with your request in getting your advertisement inserted in Davis’s paper, it having much the most extensive circulation of any published here, or elsewhere in this State. The enclosed paper contains the first publication, and it is to be repeated twice, with intervals of a fortnight each, agreeably to...
On the 20th Ultimo I did myself the honor to communicate to you the result of a proposition in the lower House of assembly here, approving the vote of the two Senators from this State, against the Treaty, and at the same time, took pleasure in mentioning the decorum observed during the debate respecting yourself and the ratifying Senators. on the next day however, the active persons of the...
In mine of the 10th Instant, the day on which the assembly convened, I did myself the honor to give you, as nearly as I could, the temper in which it had met, and that which I supposed existed amongst the people at large, in respect to the Treaty & the administration of the Fedl Government, to which I added a conjecture, founded on former experience, that the spirit of dissatisfaction might...
I did myself the honor to address you by the last Mail in regard to the temper with which our assembly has convened. nothing has yet been proposed in the House on the Treaty or any other federal subject, and I am much inclined to believe the discontented party are under some doubts what they can, with prospects of Succeeding, attempt. they will probably delay their measures in order that, as...
I have been honored with yours of the 1st Instant covering Twenty five dollars, the expence of the Express to Mr Henry, and receive with great Satisfaction the entire approbation you are pleased to express of the manner in which your several late requisitions have been attended to. you must before this have received the result of that which related to Colo. Innes, & I wish it had issued...
Colo. Innes has just returned to Town and Genl Marshall, on a conversation with him, has formed an opinion favorable to his appointment to the Office of Attorney General. judging that too much time would be lost in my waiting for your notification of our powers on this subject being still in existence, we thought it best to sound him on the score of his acceptance, apprising him of the...
The Express returned yesterday from Mr Henry—He was at a plantation more distant from hence than his place of residence, which occasioned the delay. I do myself the Honor to enclose herewith his answer to your letter. the agency you had been pleased to give me in your communication with that Gentleman, however unlimitted, would not have led me to take the liberty of opening his letter, had not...
I have been honored with yours of the 9th Instant, and immediately consulted Genl Marshall thereon. As to a change in Mr Henrys opinions upon the Constitution, he has been so little within the circle of our movements that we must rather rely on the intelligence of Genl Lee, who has had much communication with him, than our own observations. Mr Henry has for several years been in a degree...
