I take the liberty to forward by post with this letter a pamphlet my friends have encouraged me to publish on the foreign relations of the United States, of which I beg your acceptance and perusal. As it is the first effort of the kind of a very young man, I rely on your indulgence for the many errors & imperfections which your superior intimacy with the subject must enable you at a glance to...
With this letter I presume to send you a pamphlet I have just published, on the foreign relations of the United States—which I beg you to accept, and if you have liesure, to look over.—It is the essay of a very young man—in many respects deficient, and in many more faulty—but as it was written with the best intentions, and in a temper of mind wholly American, and has not besides the sanction...
The author of Inchiquins Letters on the United States, who has the honor of being known to the President, begs his acceptance of one of the earliest published copies of that work; which, as it was undertaken with a view of putting this country in good humour with itself, by endeavouring to expose the prejudices that prevent its proper estimation, the author hopes will not be unacceptable, in...
Some weeks ago I took the liberty to trouble you with a pamphlet lately published, without communicating my name as the writer. But as this concealment will soon be no longer necessary, and I am very desirous of ascertaining your sentiments on the subject, I beg leave to make it known to you, that with a design, which I am confident ought to be approved, whatever imperfections may appear in...
As an inconsiderable testimonial of the deep veneration I entertain for your talents, virtues and patriotic services, allow me to ask your acceptance of a copy of an oration delivered at our last anniversary festival by your / Most respectful / and Sincere / humble servant— MHi : Adams Papers.
I beg leave to trouble you with enclosed paper containing a recommendation from most of the Pennsylvania Delegation in Congress in favor of Mr. Richard Bache’s appointment to the Philadelphia Post Office now vacant by the death of Mr. Robert Patton. I am aware that this appointment is to be made by the Post Master General and have therefore handed him a duplicate original of the...
In submitting the enclosed letter to your consideration I am actuated by no other motive than a regard to the public good. I know very little of the Lieutenant from whom it comes, nor whether his veracity or means of observation are unquestionable. Of course I do not vouch for either. But if what he states be true, the army certainly is jeopardized for want of a competent number of officers to...
I beg leave to ask your attention to the enclosed letter —besides which I have received two of a similar character, but anonymous, from Rawleigh in North Carolina. I have also been given to understand by a Gentleman of veracity in Washington that gross frauds are practiced by the Post Master General or his immediate agents in the contracts for carrying the mails. I have the honor to subscribe...
In the long debate which took place on the State of the Union during the last Session of Congress, which appeared to be a sort of ad libitum political disquisition, I said that it was the right & the interest of this country to assert and ma[i]ntain the principle that free ships make free goods, not as a point to wage war for per se, but as one which it behoved us never to lose sight of. I...
The interest of the subject itself must excuse this communication, if you should think it requires an apology. I am prevailed upon to make it by motives altogether of a public nature. Congress having supported your recommendation by passing an act authorising hostilities against Algiers a squadron is to be sent to the Medittarranean. The naval renown of this country stands now so very high...
