A circumstance has lately transpired in the Western country which is likely to create great Litigation, and as I expect to be considerably employed in the investigation of the matter, I would beg leave to communicate the affair to you and request your opinion on it; I have presumed to do this under a confidence that you would have no objection to giving your opinion as you are not in any of...
James Patton late of Augusta County and others obtained an Order of Council in the Year 174 for 100.000 Acres of Land to be Located on the Western Waters in Augusta County in one or more Surveys. Patton who was Agent for the Company, employed a certain John Buchannan one of the Partners to Survey the Lands, who never was either cheif or Assistant Surveyor in the said County, nor had he any...
Your favor of the 3d. Instant came safe to hand yesterday and I can not forbear returning you my most grateful thanks for the particular manner in which you answered my Letter of Novr . I am again going to mention something farther in behalf of those people who wish to contest the Titles of Patton’s and Buchannan’s Representatives, and in this I am encouraged by your polite and freindly Letter...
Never was a person more perplexed than I am at the present moment. I have it in my power to communicate important intelligence, which not only affects the happiness of the Western Country but the prosperity of the Union. To what power then shall I make the communication? At the first view, it would appear to be most eligible to the Executive of Virginia; but this to me is exceptionable,...
I have the hono’r to acknowledge the receipt of your very polite Letter of the 30th of September with the several papers therein inclosed, permit me sir to return my most grateful thanks for the attention paid & the hono’r confered on me by the supreme Executive of the United States. The Office of Judge is of the first Magnitude, and when I reflect on its importance & my own imbecility it is...
After an interval of about nine years I have ventured to renew our slight acquaintance by presenting you with a curiosity lately found by one of the Settlers on the Cumberland River. It is the Image carved of Stone of a naked Woman kneeling; it is roughly executed, but from the coarseness of the Stone the instrument with which it was probably carved and its antiquity I think shews the maker to...
I have the honor to acknowledge the reciept of your favor of the 7th. of March by my friend Mr. Brown and feel myself flattered by the polite terms in which you acknowledge the reciept of my Letter of July the 8th. and your readiness to enter into an Epistolary correspondence, which I shall with pleasure continue having your assent thereto. If any circumstances in the line of Natural History...
I did myself the pleasure of acknowledging your favor by Mr. Brown in June. His leaving the District to return to Philadelphia presents so favorable an opportunity of writing again, that I cannot omit it and am encouraged by your invitation to a correspondence. Your ideas of the impropriety of attacking the Indians by Regular armaments I think will be justly verified by comparing the bad...
Impressed with an idea of the necessity and great utility which would result to government by uniting the views and interests of the Inhabitants of Kentucky with those on the North West side of the Ohio, and adopting some measures for reconciling existing jars between the Fœdral Troops and the people of this District, I take the liberty of suggesting to you an opinion on the Subject, with the...
Your polite and freindly Letter of the 23d. of May did not reach me till sometime in August. Be pleased to accept of my thanks for the freindly part you manifested respecting my Slaves who were captured by the Indians; there was a probability of recovering them; I had no hopes thro’ that channel, neither am I disappointed by the Indians refusing to Treat with our Commissioners. The campaign is...
