Letter not found. 27 August 1810. Calendared as a one-page letter in the lists probably kept by Peter Force (DLC, series 7, container 2).
The enclosed Bill was left with me a day or two ago by Mr. Whetcroft, with a request that I would forward it to you. Altho’ I took no Copy of the hurried Note I wrote you by the last Mail, I have an impression, that I pushed the idea, of part of the articles brought by the Blanchy being for me, to an extent not fully warranted by circumstances, or by delicacy, neither of which, I would...
I hasten to inform you of another Naval Victory, by the U.S. Brig Enterprize Lieutent William Burrows, over his B. M Brig Boxer, Capn. Blyth of 18 Guns. The action continued 45 Minutes.

Letter not found. 7 July 1810. Described as a one-page letter in the lists probably made by Peter Force (DLC, series 7, container 2).
We have just heard of the arrival of the Ship Neptune at New Castle. She left in England Mr. Bayard who was dangerously ill. Messrs Clay & Gallatin remained with him. Mr. Crawford came, and I presume Mr. Todd also; but I have heard no particulars. It is highly probable that you will receive letters giving a much more particular account of this arrival than I possess, but in case you should...
