Your letter tho’ dated the 25 th. of November was delivered to me only the day before yesterday. I have this day laid it before the President, and I have to observe to you that the rule by which all governments conduct themselves in cases where injury has been done by individuals of one to individuals of the other government, is to leave the injured party to seek redress in the courts of the...
I received yesterday your favor of Nov. 30. and can assure you that the city is understood universally to be entirely clear of infection, not a single person having the yellow fever at this time, and that this has been believed to be the case near three weeks. The members of Congress here are entirely without apprehension. Still I have not learnt how a stranger is to know into what houses he...
I forgot in the inclosed to mention that my Model of the threshing machine is at length sent by the Ellice Capt. Weymouth bound from New York to Richmond, addressed to Colo. Gamble. I have written to him to hold it subject to your order. Knowing nothing of the size or construction of the model, I am not able to say whether it may not be too small or too delicate to trust by a waggon, or how...

I have now to acknolege the receipt of your favors of Oct. 21. Nov. 9. and 18. The second of these reached me only two days ago. You will remember that I employed Mr. Sarjeant to take care of your suit against Griffin on Barton’s retirement. You will have seen Sargeant’s name among the victims of the Yellow fever, tho’ it may not have been known to you to be the same person. On my first visit...
I have not been inattentive to your matter since my return. I sent your letter to Mr. Vaughan, and I wrote one to Mr. Homassel. The merchants were at that time much dispersed. I inclose you Mr. Homassel’s answer . All are now returned to the city, and I hope these two gentlemen will settle and liquidate your affair. They shall not want my sollicitations to do it. My respects to Mrs. Derieux...
I think I mentioned to you either verbally or by letter that I had the model of a threshing machine arrived at New York which I set great store by, and had taken the liberty of directing to be forwarded to Richmond to your address. My friend at New-York now writes me that he has sent it by the Ellice Capt. Weymouth bound for Richmond. Will you be so good as to receive it and hold it till the...
I have received and laid before the President your letter of Nov. 26. and after due acknolegements for the offers of service you have made, I have to observe that the measures already taken by the Executive of the US. for the establishment of their right to the navigation of the Missisipi, would not at all comport with those you are pleased to propose in your letter. I should have been happy...
I owe you a letter which should have been written by your servant from Fredericksbg., whom you were so kind as to send for me when I was there. But I had passed the day at Chatham, was returning about dusk, shivering, and snowing, when I met your servant in the streets. I desired him to apologize to you for my not writing, by telling you the place and state in which he found me, and I left...
