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.

I have duly received your much respected letter of the 6th inst with its enclosure for Mr Rush, which I forward under cover to the Collector of the Customs at New York, with directions to place it with those of this Dept to go by the Packet which sails on the 16th. I am truly thankful for the kindness which you have shown in searching for the Pamphlets respecting the first settlements in...
The inclosed letter, came by this day’s Mail under cover to the Secretary of State, which I take pleasure in forwarding. The late fine rain, has greatly revived vegetation, and refreshed the air; but came too late to improve the Corn, and the crop of Tobo is so short, that it scarcely deserves notice. There will not be, in Maryland, more than 1/5 of the usual crop—almost a total failure of...
