I perused your affectionate letter of the 11 th ult o with lively sensations of pleasure excited by that additional evidence of your continued kindness and partiality. To have acquired and preserved your friendship and confidence is more than sufficient to console me for some late personal mortifications; tho’ I will not affect to conceal that these coming from an unexpected quarter, and...
On my return from an excursion to my farm on the Monongahela , I found your letter of 30 th May , applying for such papers relative to the Batture as might be in the office. It appears on enquiry & search that there were none, some printed documents excepted, which during my absence had been given to M r Graham , to be transmitted to you with other papers from the department of State , through...
Memorandum respecting the suit instituted by E. Livingston , against Th s Jefferson late President of the United States , for damage & a & a in the Batture case I. The law authorised the President to remove E. Livingston II. The decree of the territorial Court in favour of Livingston did not preclude the President from the right of exercising the general powers vested in him
I return the memoir on the batture , which to me appears complete and decisive. The legal parts of the argument being less within my competence I would probably have abridged; and my arrangement would have been somewhat different. But your’s may be better in itself, and I really cannot even suggest any important alteration or omission. I have in the enclosed paper , noted, as I read for the...

There is not now any vacant office of Receiver of public monies in the Mississippi territory . There was a vacancy last spring which was filled before the end of the last session of Congress. The series of misfortunes experienced this year in our military land operations exceeds all anticipations made even by those who had least confidence in our inexperienced officers and undisciplined men. I...
I enclose two letters from Europe, one from La Fayette , who desired that I should bear witness to his constant endeavours, under all circumstances, in support of the cause of liberty, and to his undiminished affection for his American friends & particularly for yourself. I was much gratified by the receipt of your kind letter of March last brought by M r Ticknor . Your usual partiality to me...
On my return from Washington , I found your welcome letter of Oct er 16 th which my friends here, daily expecting my return, had kept instead of forwarding it. Our opinions opinion of Bonaparte is precisely the same. In that, La Fayette ’s and every friend’s of rational liberty in France did coincide. The return of that man was generally considered by them as a curse. Notwithstanding the...
I have much regretted that a detention in my journey to this place prevented my arriving at Baltimore till after your nephew ’s departure . I had brought with me letters for Geneva which I have sent after him. M r Erving takes duplicates, and I will send triplicates on my arrival at Paris ; so that I hope that he will experience no disappointment on that account. I found the institutions and...
