After exactly a week’s balloting there at length appeared 10. states for me, 4. for Burr & 2. voted blanks. this was done without a single vote coming over. Morris of Vermont withdrew, so that Lyon’s vote became that of the state. the 4. Maryland federalists put in blanks, so that the vote of the 4. Republicans became that of their state. mr Huger of S. Carolina (who had constantly voted for...
The H. of R. has been in conclave ever since 2. aclock yesterday. 25. balots have been taken at intervals of from half an hour to an hour. they were invariably 8. 6. & 2. divided. I can venture nothing more by the post but my affectionate salutations, to yourself & my dear Martha. P.S. 1. P.M. the H. of R. suspended the balloting from 7. to 12. this morning & after trying a few balots with the...
Your’s of the 24th . came to hand last night. on application to the Postmaster Genl. it seems that I should have put my letters into the office here on the Thursday, instead of Friday. this accordingly goes to the office this day, which is Thursday, and therefore ought to get to you on Thursday next. it may very likely therefore go with my letter of the 23d. I am very glad indeed to find that...
Your’s of the 17th . reached this on the 21st. from Saturday to Wednesday. this will leave this place tomorrow (Saturday the 24th.) and ought to be with you on Thursday the 29th. but it seems that a week is lost somewhere. I suspect the Fredsbg rider leaves that place an hour or two before the Northern post reaches it. on this subject I will this day write to the Postmaster genl. I am...
I promised to procure for the Chevalier de Freire , minister of Portugal an account of our manner of cultivating tobacco so detailed as that a person might, by it’s instruction, pursue the culture with exactness. I always intended to have got two or three judicious planters to state to me their methods, which I should have noted down, and out of the whole have made out one. I now see that it...
Your favor of the 3d. came to hand yesterday. I suspect that I mistook our post day when I first arrived here, and put the letters you mention into the post office a day too late. I shall be glad if you will mention when that of the 1st. instant gets to you, as well as the present & future letters, that if there be any thing wrong in the post I may get it rectified. the mail for Milton is made...
I wrote you last on the 19th. acknoleging yours of Dec. 8. from Richmond which is the last come to hand. we have nothing from Europe more than you see in the newspapers. Congress seem to be resting on their oars, uncertain what to do. we think the less they do the better, and therefore concur in all adjournments, postponements & whatever else will rid of time. the election is still...
Your’s from Richmond is recieved. as soon as Colo. Cabell comes, within whose district Goochld. C.H. is, that matter shall be attended to. the French convention is recieved. it will meet objections from both sides of the house; but I am not at liberty to mention it’s contents. the event of the election is now pretty well known. the two republican candidates have 73. each, mr A. 65. & P. 64....
I believe we may consider the election as now decided. letters recieved from Columbia (S.C.) this morning, & dated Dec. 2. which was the day of appointing their electors, announce that the republican ticket carried it by majorities of from 17. to 18. the characters named are firm, & were to elect on the next day. it was intended that one vote should be thrown away from Colo. Burr. it is...
You are probably anxious to hear of the election, and indeed it is the only thing of which any thing is said here: and little known even of it. the only actual vote known to us is that of this state . 5. for A. & P. and 5. for J. & B. those who know the Pensva legislature best, agree in the certainty of their having no vote. Rhode isld. has carried the Fedl. ticket of electors by about 200 in...
