Judge Anderson seems to think that, some doubts exist respecting the situation of my nomination. Some of the Members think it still in the possession of the Senate, and others that a new one must be made, and as tomorrow is the last day, he conceives it would be well to have it ready in case it should become a question, for the new one to be used only in case of need. I think there is no doubt...
Having ascertained by an indirect inquiry that Mr. Pinkney had left Annapolis, I set out this morning direct for this place, where I found him. On reading your letter, he requested me to inform you, that he would accept with pleasure the appointment which you had been pleased to offer him, and that he would write you fully on the subject tomorrow.

I have just heard, that an appointment is about to be made of an Officer to Command the Revenue Cutter for the Chesapeake Bay; and having understood, that Captain Middleton, of the Flotilla, is desirous of obtaining it, May I beg leave to recommend him to your consideration, as an excellent man for that purpose? Mrs. Forrest and myself, were some time since, rendered quite unhappy, at hearing...
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...
I have this moment been favored with yours of the 23d. inst. enclosing a letter for Mrs. Cutts, which I have just sent to her. The fifteen dollars for John Freeman, I will hand him to day with the proper directions to ensure a co-operation between the Steam Boat and the Stage to Montpelier. I received a letter a few days since from my Son Julius, dated at Frankford, on the 14th. inst. in which...
Having let my two Houses to Mr. De Neuville, and stipulated to furnish him with a Carriage House and Stable, which I am afraid I shall not be able to get ready by the time promised, and as he has agreed to receive one at a reasonable distance during the approaching winter, I have thought it might be possible to obtain the one formerly used by Mr. Jefferson for that purpose. It is now entirely...
