It is with great diffidence that we make the communication, which forms the contents of this letter.—The subject has for a long time seriously engaged our attention, and that of our confidential republican friends—It is indeed of a very delicate nature.—Our troubles have been imbittered by the recollection that our own former measures have led us into the present dilemma.—A conviction, that we...
I had the honor of addressing to you several letters which I fear have miscarried, as I have received no communications from the seat of government since my arrival in this territory. The Board of Commissioners at its first formation adopted a system of rules for the government of its proceedings, which were published to the people.—This led to regularity in the preparation and presentment of...
I take the liberty to offer for your perusal and amusement the enclosed effusion of anti-republican malice . It is a true specimen of the present temper of the party in Connecticut.—The mass of the People begin to discern the danger which they have escaped, & to resort to the republican standard; but the work of reformation will be slow.—The priesthood are armed against us with all the powers...
Being recently elected a member of the Legislature of Connecticut, and feeling unwilling to disappoint the wishes and expectations of my constituents, I have to solicit a discharge from the office of Supervisor of the Revenue . The business of this office is so far advanced toward a conclusion, that I apprehend the public can experience no essential inconvenience from my discharge at the...
I presume I need offer no apology, for taking the liberty to communicate to the chief executive magistrate of the United States, such circumstances respecting this remote and secluded district, as are supposed not to be fully known at the seat of government. The people inhabiting this section of the Mississippi Territory, are peculiarly cut off, from all communication with other parts of the...
In your letter of the 15th. of July last, you was pleased to say, that “the number, nature, and extent of our settlements east of Pearl River was yet but imperfectly known,” and to request that during my continuance in this part of the country, I would endeavour to obtain full and faithful answers to certain queries, which were at the same time proposed. My attention has been turned to this...
It has been mentioned to me, that expectations of the removal of the Surveyor at Saybrook in this State, from office, are generally entertained. Should such an event take place, permit me to name Mr. George Wolcott as a candidate for the appointment. He is a Gentleman of fair and unblemished moral character, whose integrity, amidst the conflicts of party, I believe, has never been questioned;...
A few days since I had the pleasure of an interview with Mr Granger—He being acquainted with the fact of the Blank Comn. of Register being confided to me, we conversed on that subject. It appears that two young Gentn. of about twenty five or thirty years, both Lawyers, the one from the State of New York, and the other from the State of Connt. are desirous to establish themselves in that part...
Having been absent from home about two weeks, the letter which you did me the honor to write on the 15th. ulto., and the blank Commission which followed by the next Mail did not reach me until this day. The Secretary of State has conveyed the Commission which was filled for myself.— The confidence which you have been pleased to repose in me, meets my grateful acknowledgement, and so far as a...
I avail myself of the first moment to announce my arrival, with my associate (Mr Nicholas) at this place. It is not from any defect in reasonable calculation, or want of proper exertion, that has prevented our being at the place assigned for the discharge of our official duty on the first of the present month. I commenced my journey in the month of Septemr and have been twelve weeks pursuing...
