If you think me competent to make the contemplated selection for the Mediterranean presents &c., and that they can be procured at Baltimore (beyond which I should be unwilling to go in the present situation of my family) it would give me pleasure to undertake it; as the whole might be accomplished in a few days, and the commission would amount to something handsome. If there should be any...
Mr. Tayloe called on me last night to enquire if the Government had engaged any one as the next Bearer of Dispatches to England; to which I told him, that I knew of several applicants; but was not certain whether a selection had been made or not: He then informed me that Governor Ogle had just arrived at his House, and begd. leave to tender his services on the usual terms, as his Physicians...

It is now entirely...
The nine Marble Slabs which you requested me to purchase for you, were shipped on the 3d. inst., on board the schooner Gift, Capt. Palmer bound to Fredericksburg. The size is 19 Inches square, Freight 9d. Virginia Money each. The Hail-Storm on Saturday week, did considerable damage to the corn, in many parts of Maryland; there will however, from present appearances, be a large crop made. I...
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...
