I have the honor to respectfully to represent to you, that the Governor of Pennsylvania has been pleased to commit to me, the Clerkship of one of the state courts. This Appointment renders it impracticable for me to finish the business of the old revenue service of the United States. The Mass of what remains relates to the secondary & subordinate officers, who have in most instances disputed...
I hope this letter will find you restored to that state of health which your personal happiness, and those of your family and your country require. The new revenues will occasion the want of suitable officers for a very difficult service. I have not seen any of the bills which create the offices. I understand that the office of Commissioner of the Revenue is restored, that there will be no...
Since I had the honor to submit to your consideration the object to which my recent memoir related, accounts from GBritain & India, the arrival of unprivileged American Vessels with invoices of cotton wool from in our ports and other circumstances have more deeply impressed me with the importance of the Subject. I beg leave to add the enclosed document A as an appendix to the Memoir. A region...
I hope and trust, that the air and partial relaxation of Montpelier have restored you to the blessings of health, under the advantages of a constitution, which, tho not robust, has never been in any degree sacrificed to irregularity. Having seen the various laws in relation to the new revenues, which have been enacted, and hoping that you will indulge me with a few minutes upon my own subject,...
Mr. Eustis, the late Secretary of War, on his way to Boston, remained two or three days here. During the time I conversed unreservedly with him. He informed me that it had been understood at Washington that I was in a very good way in business. I had no opportunity to learn from what source such a representation could have arisen. I understood that it had reached you & was probably credited by...
In the course of my reflections upon the intended negociations at St. Petersburg, I find my mind equally solicitous for a pacific issue , and for an issue, which may be found regular at public law, as it was received and considered in 1783 & from thence till the commencement of the wars which have arisen from the late European revolutions. The Former object of solicitude is immediate peace:...
I presume you will receive, by the mail of this day, or tomorrow an account of the death of Gen. Macpherson. It took place last Night at his country house, near this city. This event has brought up to my mind the permission, which I had the honor to receive from you through Mr. Gallatin—to address you on the subject of the office on the expected occurrence of the event. Since Providence has...
From my knowledge of the Reverend Mr. W. White, Commr. of Loans & of John White Esqr Collector of the Revenue, I beg leave, on their application, respectfully to submit to you an opinion, that a Son & Nephew of those two gentlemen will be a safe & proper person to receive the honor of a place in the Corps of Cadets. I have the honor to be, Sir, your most respectful Servant, RC ( DNA : RG 94,...
An affair in which I have no interest, but that of a citizen, whose property is landed, has occurred to my observation with so much force, that I have considered it a duty to attempt to attract to it the most respectable notice. It is above thirty years since I submitted to you in our return from the convention at Annapolis, that the garden cultivation of cotton on the Chesapeak bay convinced...
The admission of new states, and particularly of Louisiana, and the representation, on consideration of slaves having been incorrectly used to create eastern dissatisfaction, in this Crisis of our country, it has appeared to be a duty to give those two points a careful examination. The inclosed paper relates to one of them, but it takes one more to do bare justice to that perverted topic. It...
