I have the honor to inform you that declarations on the part of France and England for the continuance of peace were signed last night at Versailles, of which be so good as to notify the citizens of the U.S. concerned in commerce at your port, for their future government. I have the honor to be sir your most obedt. & most hble. Servt., PrC ( DLC ); in the hand of William Short, signed by TJ;...
Being called to Holland at a very few hours warning I have only time to notify you that I shall be absent from this place three or four weeks to come. In the mean time should any thing pressing occur, Mr. Short, my secretary will attend to it. I have the honour to be with great esteem Sir Your most obedt. humble servt., PrC ( DLC ); at foot of text: “M. Limozin M. Carnes M. Bondfeild.”
By the inclosed paper I presume there are arrived for me on board the packet three small boxes of seeds or plants, and a large box, the contents of which I know not. I will beg the favor of you to pay for me the freight and other expences, and to send the three small boxes by the Diligence. As to the large one, I conjecture it may contain bones and other objects of Natural history which should...
I should not so long have delayed answering your favor of the 6th. of Oct. but that I have been extremely engaged, and particularly by the Arret of Sep. 28. which prohibits the importation of foreign whale oil, without any exception in our favor. At length I have a prospect of obtaining an exception for American oil. Should any arrive before the matter is finally decided, the Ministers...
I have duly received your favor with my account, balance 180. 7s which shall be paid to your order. I observe it supposed with you that the differences between the courts of London and St. James are nearly settled. But be assured on the contrary that no accomodation is expected, and that war is as certain as it can be, without being actually commenced or declared. There remains indeed a...
According to the desire expressed in your letter by Capt. Yeaton I have enquired into the practicability of getting him naturalised here, and authorised to command his vessels, but the information given us, rendering it probable that more time would be consumed, in attending here till the objects could be obtained, than he chuses to spare, he declines pursuing it. I will beg permission to...
I received yesterday your favour informing me that your Ship Eolus would sail on the 5th. inst. As you had expected she would not sail till the 15th. when you wrote me before, I had so informed the two Mr. Fitzhughs, two gentlemen of Virginia who wished to go in her. When I received your letter yesterday therefore, the warning to them was too short to get ready. Of consequence they have...
His excellency Count Dugnani archbishop of Rhodes and Nuncio of the Pope at this court supposes that there may be in the post office of Havre a packet addressed to him from America. I have promised him I would ask the favor of you to have the post office examined and to forward the packet if it be there; which I have the honour now to request of you. Since the date of my last no new...
Mr. Jefferson begs the favor of Monsieur Limozin to deliver the inclosed to the same Monsr. Bourgoin, passenger on board the packet, to whom he desired his last to be delivered. This contains the copy of a letter from the minister promising the reduction of duties on tar pitch and turpentine, which Mr. Jefferson had sollicited, and to interest himself with the city of Rouen to reduce the local...
I have received your favor of the 17th. Mine of the 14th. which did not go from here till the 15th. got to your hands probably on the 17th. after you had written. It will have given you the necessary information relative to the boxes, and I shall be glad to know if they went by the packet. The bust of the Marquis de la Fayette went by the Diligence d’eau la bonne union a M. Gonard and left...
