I returned from Albemarle on saturday & had the pleasure to receive your favor of the 28. ulto. on Monday last. I perceive that the idea which I suggested of a new and decisive effort, to avert the dangers interior & exterior of the present crisis, by a special mission to France & England, has not obtained your approbation. As the idea was suggested without illustration you will permit me to...
An idea has occurr’d to me which I will take the liberty to submit to your consideration. I have thought that you might command my services before you retire from office, in a mode which might prove advantageous to our country & equally honorable to you & myself. Our affairs are evidently at a pause, and the next step to be taken without an unexpected change, unless some expedient consistent...
I omitted in my last letter to state to you that in the publication of our late correspondence, some few verbal alterations had been made in my letter of March 22d. & a short passage omitted. In speaking of special missions it stands in the publication that they were never well received &c. I think I substituted to those terms the word “agreable” in the letter; and towards the conclusion the...
Our correspondence will be printed today in a pamphlet, a copy of which shall be sent to you by the mail if it is completed in time. I have omitted in the publication every passage which had been noted by you, and added to the list of omissions, one passage, in your letter of April 11th. which speaks of the use made of my name for vindictive purposes, the publication of which could only serve...
Immediately after you left Albemarle, I was forc’d to go to Loudoun to make some arrangements in the estate with which I am charged there, & having returned by the same route, I did not reach this place till yesterday late at night. I had not therefore the pleasure to receive your kind favors of the 12th. & 13. till to day. The papers noted in your letters to me shall most certainly be omitted...
I have just returned from Richmond & send the inclosed for yr. inspection in the hope that you may not have set-out to day for Washington, knowing that you have heretofore frequently staid a day longer than that which you had appointed for your departure to arrange more completely your private affairs. I take the liberty to submit to your perusal a copy of my letters to Mr. Randolph, being the...
I arrived here on Saturday evening from Kentuckey & shall proceed to Richmond as soon as I recover from the fatigue of the late journey. The object of this is to request your sanction to the publication of our late correspondence on certain important publick topicks. It is interesting & will I doubt not be satisfactory to the publick and to many friends to be made acquainted with that...
On information of the death of John Page which gained general belief here, I wrote you a letter two days since, which had relation to an object connected with that event. The present accounts contradict that report & as I hope & believe on good ground. I hasten therefore to correct the error into which I had been led.   You are I presume by this time return’d to Washington. I hope that you...
I had the pleasure to receive some days past your favor of the 11th. & that of the 13. to day. Being perfectly satisfied by the explanations & assurances which you had given me in your preceding letters that I had taken an improper idea of yr. disposition towards me, the details contained in your last one were not necessary in that view. I receive them however with great interest, because in...
My expenses abroad having exceeded unavoidable the compensation allowed me in the station I held & the mismanagement of my estate in my absence, make it an object to me to command on loan the sum of about 10,000 dolrs. I should therefore be happy to receive the accomodation from the bank provided it would be willing to make it, on su ch terms as I could accept, or indeed comply with. To enable...
