I beg leave to congratulate you on your return to Monticello & hope you there enjoy that comfort in retirement which you had contemplated. I think the laws of the United States exempt from the expence of postage those who have served the high office you so lately filled: I therefore sent you a few days ago a packet of Newspapers: since the date of which the Duke of York has resigned . Annexed...
I beg leave to present you my congratulations on your becoming president of the United States, hoping you will experience that comfort in the office, which those, who undertake so arduous an one under the influence of such motives as your’s, so highly merit. The partial repeal of the Embargo law was indeed very unexpected in this country; but the late revocation of the orders in council has...
I have just received the inclosed from Mr. Joy & have the honor to be with perfect respect Sir Your Most Obt Servant RC and enclosures ( DNA : RG 59, Consular Despatches, Liverpool). Consul Maury enclosed a copy of George Joy to JM, 8 July 1809, which included a translation of a Dutch resolution of 30 June listing articles that could be imported into Holland “by our decree of 31 March,”...
I am much obliged to you for your consignment of Tobacco ⅌ Adeline, of which I am just advised by Mr Stone, with orders for insurance. It is done at 3 Guineas ⅌ Cent, so as to cover £20 ⅌ Hhd. This market now is so much overdone with Tobacco as to contain nearly double the quantity I ever knew. It is greatly lowered in value & of dull sale. Whenever the Vessell arrive & the cargo be landed &...
Annexed is the copy of what I had the honor to write to you on the 11th Ulto, since which the Adeline arrived safe in this river; but, before getting into Dock, recieved injury & considerably damaged her cargo, in which damage your consignment participated, & 1786 ℔ were cut off, for which I claim on the Underwriters. The immense influx of our produce since the expiration of the...
With this is a Copy of the letter I had the honour to write to you on the 14th November, since which I have not received any instructions about your Tobacco ⅌ Adeline. No part of it has been sold. It now is more than twelve months since the commencement of the Unparalleled distresses to which the Trading Interest of this Country has been subjected. They still are so great that Government offer...
Mr Joy has desired me to forward the inclosed. Wheat & Flour advanced very suddenly some days ago & the prevalent opinion is that prices are yet to be higher. I have not been able to do any thing satisfactory with the Tobaccoe you were so good as to consign me in 1810. It is all on hand. With high respect & esteem I have the honor to be your obliged friend & Servt Flour 70/ a 74/. ⅌ barrel...
I am requested by Mr Joy to forward the inclosed. I wish there was a better prospect than now presents for amicable adjustment between our country & this. It daily appears more & more the determination of administration to continue the orders in council; yet petitions for their revocation increase; as do the prices of Grain & other articles of food, which, adding to the distresses of...
Mr Joy requests me to forward the inclosed. The Murder of Mr Purceval has occasiond much consternation. A Successor is not yet appointed, but probably will be in a few days. Some speak of the Marquis of Wellesley. With high respect & esteem I am Your obliged friend & Sert RC ( DNA : RG 59, CD , Liverpool, vol. 3). See George Joy to JM, 16 May 1812 , and n. 1.
The perusal of your kind letter of 25 th april affected me much; as indeed always do those pleasing testimonies of attachment from old friends: and, by the by, I rather think you now are the oldest I have; for our knowlege of each other must have commenced about 1756. The alternate fluctuations of prospect as to peace & war between the two countries has, for years past, been most tiresome &...
The free shipping of Goods to the United States subsequent to the revocation of the orders in council suggested to me that some chease might not be unacceptable & I have, without order , sent you two by the Argo for Alexandria, which I hope you will recieve in good condition: to insure which they are in Lead as before. I inclose the bill of parcels. All your Tobaccoe ⅌ Adeline is on hand. I...
20 August 1813, Liverpool. “In october last I had the honor to inform you of the sale of Four hhds of your Tobaccoe [not found] at d4 ½, since which three more have been sold at d7½.” RC ( DLC ). 1 p.
On the 16th March last I had the honor to inclose you the account of Sales of the Tobo you were so good as consign me some years ago, with your account current, by which there appears due to you a balance of £204:15:4¼ which is at your disposal. I now inclose duplicates of those accounts. Accept the sincere wishes of an old friend with assurance of the esteem & respect with which he is your...
Peace having been at length agreed on, I take the earliest Opportunity of continuing the offer of my services in the situation of Consul, which I have so long had the honor of holding in this place: and, altho’ years must have, in some degree, rendered me less active, yet they cannot diminish the attachment I have to my countrymen or the desire I have invariably possessed of being useful to...
On the 2d instant I had the honor of continuing to you the tender of my services in the situation I so long have held in this port, as Consul of the United States. I now respectfully repeat the same tender, with the assurance of the satisfaction it ever has afforded me, & ever will afford me, of being useful to my countrymen. During the war I have, from time to time, written to you on the...
Since the conclusion of the peace at Ghent I have had the honor to address you by several opportunities, expressing my wish to be continued in the situation I have, for so many years, filled at this place & requesting to be so continued. By the National Intelligencer of 7th Ulto I have the satisfaction to find you have had the goodness to anticipate my wishes, for which I present you my...
I now resume the conveyance of public information to you in the old way, and will, from time to time, have that pleasure. The peace appears to have given in the United States a more general satisfaction than in this country ; where indeed it, at first , was by no means palatable to many; but now is, I believe, un i versally welcome: and I cannot help confidently hoping that, even should this...
On the 24 th Ult o I recieved your letters of the 15 th & 16 th of June & present you my thanks for them. From what I have read in the public prints of the U.S.A. the peace appears generally to have been there hailed with a sincere welcome: here not; & so it continued until the Sovereign of Elba returned to France : then indeed the people of this country were truly pleased that peace had been...
My last letter was of the 9 th Sep r 15. A State of war, for about twenty five years, appears to have so disqualified us for the sober habits of peace as to have occasioned great reverses in the affairs of many classes of persons in this country:—much so, even with the owners of the Soil; but, particularly, with merchants & Bankers, the failures of which last, I consider almost u n...
