The bill relative to the debt having passed thro the House I hope an handsome conclusion will be made to the business of the Departments. I should not have troubled you again upon [it], but that I am well informed that a Member of the Senate, who opposed the bill in its present Shape said a week ago that “the whole of the Treasury clauses except the Compensations would be struck out in the...
The Secretary of the Treasury, in obedience to the order of the house of Representatives of the fifteenth day of January last, has applied his attention, at as early a period as his other duties would permit, to the subject of manufactures, and particularly to the means of promoting such as will tend to render the United States independent on foreign Nations for military and other essential...
I am sorry to inform you that since I had the honor to write you last no offer, within my Knowlege, has been made for Mrs. Keppele’s house, tho a bill was set up on it at an early day. I presume your Son has duly communicated this to you before. You will see by our public prints that Pennsylvania has commenced openly its electioneering movements. Two meetings have been held in the Hall,...
The inclosed paper A contains a list of the articles which it will be expedient to import from Europe without delay for the naval armament. A ship the Pigou is expected to sail for London on the 28th instant. Considerations relative to certainty and to secrecy if the state of things in Europe should require it, appears to recommend the confiding the direction of the business to our Minister in...

Notes on the Report of the Secretary of State, made in consequence of the reference of the House of Representatives of the day of 1791 [pa]ge 1 1 Nations —substitute Countries —or change the words “ Spain &ca.” 2 Quere the difference between Breadstuff and meals page 2 1 its Dominions —to prevent mistakes might be inserted as above
Mr. Whelen & I do not understand that he had made a proposition to you to let Mr. Church take back what remains in their Hands of Mr. Church’s original interest in the lands sold him & Company. You will find on a revision of my Letter of the 17th. inst. that it does not convey that Idea and you will perceive on reflection that it could not. The matter stood thus. When you were here at the...
I recd. your favor of the 28th. instant by yesterdays post. I find the idea of a landed fund for the encouragement of manufactures is an old one in my mind. On looking over the little address to the frds of Manufactures in 1787 I observe I have hinted it there. You will excuse me therefore, if I wish not to part with it sooner than can be avoided. An infringement of the constitution is a...
A few days ago I forwarded to you, per post, a “state of our navigation,” which I presume you have received. I have the honour to transmit you in this inclosure some notes upon two subjects, one of them of great importance, that may be useful when arranging our affairs with France and Spain. The rough draughts of these papers were made a few weeks before I received your letter, and I then...
From the manner in which you have been pleased to communicate with me both verbally & otherwise I have been led to write to you without reserve and with less ceremony perhaps than could be justified but that I generally had in view the public good. I trusted you would believe that such was my end, and therefore hesitated not to trouble you. On no occasion perhaps has such an apology been more...
