It has occurr’d to me it might possibly be of some use for me to give Mr. Livingston a letter to the consul Cambaceres. I was well acquainted with him, while in France, had much intercourse on publick business & he was often at my house. Still I am not aware it will produce any good effect; perhaps there may be an impropriety in my writing him. I send you a letter to him for mr. L., and submit...
Letter not found. 11 October 1801. Acknowledged in JM to Monroe, 24 Oct. 1801 . Encloses letter for Robert R. Livingston.
Letter not found. 15 October 1801, Richmond. Calendared in the lists probably made by Peter Force (DLC, series 7, container 2) as a two-page letter “recommending sund[r]y persons” and concerning “a sword for the heir of Gen. Campbell to be presented by Virginia.” Acknowledged in JM to Monroe, 24 Oct. 1801 .
I requested Major Coleman to enclose you lately 300. dolrs. which are intended as a remitance or deposit to enable Mr. Livingston to purchase two swords, one for the heir of Genl. Campbell the other for John Jouett, for services rendered in the course of our revolutionary war. You will receive herewith a letter to Mr. L. on that subject which you will be so good as peruse, seal & forward him...
The duties preparatory to the meeting of the Genl. assembly prevented an earlier appropriation of the 300. dolrs. sent you by Major Coleman. You will now receive a letter for Mr. Livingston informing him that you have been so kind as charge yourself with that sum as a fund for the payment of two swords which he is requested to purchase for this commonwealth. I must trouble you with another...
It is particularly grateful to me to hear by yr. letter of the 8th. instt. that my communication to the legislature has yr. approbation. It is in the power of the President & Executives of the States who are republican, to open a cause to the people which has heretofore been obscured by a cloud, or if seen, branded as jacobinic. This may be done without even looking at the weak and unworthy...
I enclosed you today from the council chamber a copy of my correspondence with the bankers relative to the 120,000 dolrs. remitted by the late Secry of the Treasury to me at Paris for them, intending to write you fully this afternoon on that & some other subjects, but am prevented by compy. I have the original letters of the bankers, and other papers referr’d to in that correspondence, which I...
Two incidents occurr’d in the course of the last session of our Assembly which are worthy some attention. These were, the attack on the Executive respecting the disbursements of the publick money, and the meetings which took place in the Capitol towards the close of the session of some of the members from the western counties for the purpose of promoting a dismemberment of the State. The first...
Since my last respecting mr. Skipwith’s claim to reimbursement of the money advanc’d by him to replace what was robbed from him in Paris, of the sum entrusted to him to be remitted to our bankers in Holland, I have been in Albemarle & brought down with me many documents, most of which are original, relative to that affair, which are forwarded you by the mail. In these you will receive the...
I took the liberty lately to forward to yr. care by Major Coleman who went to Alexa. a box containing the three pieces of tapestry, which are intended for Mr. Fenwick, he having promised to take charge of and sell them for me. Can you possibly convey them to his possession. He is I believe some where ⟨in th⟩e neighbourhood of the federal city. Will you also be so good as put the enclosed...
