The Secretary at War has informed you that the General Superintendence of the Recruiting service is confided to me, as an incident to the Inspectorship. As a preliminary to this, it is requisite to distribute the States respectively into Districts and subdistricts the latter to correspond with the number of Companies to be raised in each State assigning one company to each subdistrict & the...
A garden, you know, is a very usual refuge of a disappointed politician. Accordingly, I have purchased a few acres about 9 Miles from Town, have built a house and am cultivating a Garden. The melons in your country are very fine. Will you have the goodness to send me some seed both of the Water & Muss Melons? My daughter adds another request, which is for three or four of your peroquets. She...
I have received your letter of the 28th. ultimo. I approve of your reasons, & the plan you propose, for the disposition of the fifth sixth and seventh Regiments. Captain Ingersoll & Captain McClellan will proceed to join you as soon as Capt. Huger, who is hourly expected, shall arrive with his company from the Southward. Major Tousard I believe will be employed, in the Eastern Quarter, by the...
Agreeable to a conversation which we had while you were in this city I have directed Lieutenant Walbach to repair to your Head Quarters for the purpose of assisting in preparing a system for the Tactics and police of the Cavalry. It being of importance that this object should be accomplished in the course of the ensuing winter I shall count on your obliging disposition towards me no less than...
Not knowing certainly what may be the communication to you from the Department of War, I think it proper that you should be apprised of what is doing here towards the disbanding of the army. For this purpose, besides the general orders which will be sent you, I shall keep you advised by letter of my views. I now send you the copy of a letter which I wrote yesterday to the Secy of War, and of...
I have received your letter of the twenty fourth of March. You will find its general object anticipated by mine of the 17th. of the same month, a copy of which is enclosed. I do not think it advisable materially to vary the plan indicated in that letter, as it is desirable that the troops for reinforcing General Wilkinson Should avail themselves of the Situation of the rivers in the Spring,...
I duly received your letter of the 6th of September; and have sent an extract of it to Mr Church for the explanation which is necessary. I feel myself truly obliged by your friendly allusion to my unpleasant situation, and for the consolation you are so kind as to offer me. The esteem of the discerning and virtuous must always support a mind properly formed under the pressure of malevolence...
You will probably have learned before this reaches you that the act of last Session for the better organization of the Judiciary Department has been repealed, and I take it for granted, that you will with me view this measure as a vital blow to the Constitution. In my opinion, it demands a systematic and persevering effort by all Constitutional means to produce a revocation of the precedent,...
Pursuant to a conversation which I had with you while in this city I have concluded to offer to Lt. Izzard the place of Aid de camp in my family. I have mentioned to Mr. Izzard that you will dispense with the form of an application to you as Commanding General of the district. Df , in the handwriting of Thomas Y. How, Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress. H to George Izard, November 18, 1799 .
The S of War mentions to me that the recruiting service still continues in some of the corps under your command. I presume from this that my intention has been misapprehended. The General order of the eleventh of March was sent to you under the idea that you would communicate it to the respective posts in your district. I would thank you to have this done as soon as possible. Df , in the...
