This letter will be delivered to you by Mr Strickland, a very respectable English Gentleman and a friend of mine, whom, as he proposes making a tour in the eastern states, I take the liberty of introducing to your acquaintance, and of assuring you, that I shall esteem any attentions and civilities shewn to him as personal favors conferred upon myself— I have the honor to be with the greatest...
In obedience to your Lordship’s instructions, I endeavoured to ascertain immediately, as far as it was in my power, the probability of this government’s acceding to any propositions that have been or may be made to it by Sweden and Denmark, on the subject of becoming a party to the convention into which those powers have recently entered. For this purpose, I took an early opportunity of having...
In answer to your letter of this date, it is only necessary for me to remark, that as you have not stated to me any principle whatsoever; relative to the sailing from ports of the United States of the vessels of nations hostile to each other, that can have dictated the Presidents determination on this point of the 16th cur[ren]t (and announced to me on the 18th) which ought not to have...

[ Philadelphia, March 10–April 17, 1794 ] “I have the honor of transmitting … a letter … which on the 10th. of March I addressed to the Secretary of State on the subject of the encroachments by the citizens of Vermont on the territory occupied by his Majesty’s arms. To this letter I have not as yet received any answer, though both Mr. Randolph and Mr. Hamilton have assured me that the...
[ Philadelphia, April 15–16, 1794 ] “… the answer … to Mr. Pinckney’s Memorial … was laid before the two houses of Congress … but it has not as yet been ordered to be printed . I have had however the satisfaction of learning from Mr. Hamilton that it has been well received by this government.” D , PRO: F.O. Transcripts or photostats from the Public Record Office of Great Britain deposited in...
The project of appointing a special commissioner to Great Britain having been … for some time in contemplation, I have necessarily been solicitous to obtain some precise knowledge of the objects of the negociation which will be committed to him. I therefore took occasion from the receipt of your Lordship’s last dispatches and in the course of one or two days afterwards to have some...
