I have to acknowledge & thank you for your favour of the 2 nd Inst: which I communicated to my friend Aaron Dexter Esq r President of the Mass as Agricultural Society . He and his friends are highly gratified by your account of Co l Randolph ’s success in ploughing hill sides horizontally—a desideratum long sought for, in vain, in this quarter. Several Gentlemen are anxious to begin the...
I have the honour to send You, herewith, another number of “The Massachusetts Agricultural Repository and Journal ” — By this it appears that the growing of Wheat is becoming an object worthy attention, in this section of the Union: which, for many years, has been deemed impracticable. The causes assigned were various: by the friends in Pennsylvania , to the persecution of the Quakers, so...

Under date of the 23d Ult. I took the liberty of trespassing on your time, respecting my personal concerns. Since that day I have exerted myself to procure Bondsmen as Collector of the Revenue—but in vain. I have informed the Commissioner of the Revenue that I despair finding sureties. In consequence of a Successor’s being appointed, it is my sincere wish that it may not be done under the idea...
It is with great reluctance that I ask for a moment of your all importa⟨nt⟩ time. I hope this liberty will be excused as it may materially affect the future comfort of myself and my family. This day I have written to the Comm⟨is⟩sioner of the Revenue, to inform him of th⟨e⟩ great, perhaps insuperable, difficulty in my procuring proper sureties for the sum requir⟨ed⟩ in the Bond to be given by...

The former Massachusetts senator recommends Edmund Jennings Lee for the vacant District of Columbia judgeship. “I am not capable of forming a correct opinion of his Legal Abilities,” but is certain satisfactory recommendations will be forthcoming “from Gentlemen who are Judges.” Hopes JM “will pardon this freedom.” RC ( DNA : RG 59, Letters of Application, 1809–17). 1 p.
Prevented by a severe cold from paying You my Congratulations, personally, on the 4th of March, I requested our mutual Friend Mr Deblois to present them, hoping, ere’ this day, to have had the pleasure of renewing them myself.
