I have received your Favor of the eighth Instant and am looking out for an Opportunity to send on the Plate, concluding you will some how or other take the whole Set. You say you have Forks and Spoons enough. In that Case it will be better to sell them, which can always be done to Advantage, and take those belonging to the Set which if I remember right are made of a Pattern to suit the Rest....
I have your two Letters of the 27th. of Feby. and the 4th. Instant. I thank you for them. In Reply to what you tell me in the Close of the former I can only say that your Talents if not your Birth entitle you to the Rank of an American Citizen. To be born in America seems to be a Matter of Indifference at New York, an advantage in New England, a Disadvantage in Pensilvania. You say I am not....
Mr Morris presents respectful Compliments and is much oblig’d to Mr Jefferson for his kind Attention Mr M. will endeavor to have the Plan of a parquet executed if his Carpenters have not already gone too far in preparing Materials for one of their own Contrivance RC ( DLC ); undated; endorsed by TJ as received 23 Apr. and so recorded in SJL . Morris began building a new mansion at Morrisiana...
I am asham’d at this late Day to reply to your Letter of the sixth of June. I waited at first for an opportunity to send round the Plate intending to let you have the whole on such Conditions as would have perfectly agreed with the State of the Funds which you was so kind as to communicate. I could meet with no Opportunity and lately the Chancellor being on his Way to France where a Service of...
Enclosed you have a Letter for you I have this Instant received from Leray. I must add a word respecting that same Bill of Exchange. I have agreed to pay to Mr. Tillier whatever the Company shall owe him and Thereby confirm what I have said to you upon that Subject but it is upon the express Condition that the Bill in Question be deposited, in your Hands if you please, so that I may be possest...
You Must pardon me for telling you I am sorry that you opposed sending a Petition to Congress against the Repeal of the Law of last Session for amending the judicial System. It will stop I suppose any such actions which might have come on from the Eastward and thus leave our Enemies to conclude against us from the Silence of our friends. Moreover it will enable your personal Enemies to say...
I have received your Favor of the first. Accept my Thanks for the Communications which it contains. Time will eventually give us whatever Great Britain may withhold in a commercial Treaty. It is probably fortunate for us that she had not the Good Sense to accede at an earlier Period to our reasonable Propositions. I am glad to find it is so clearly your Opinion that Spain will yield to proper...
I receive this Instant your Favor of this Date. Were I at Home, I might perhaps find some Memorandum respecting the Transaction which it alludes to. Certainly I should find the Letters I have received, and Copies of those I may have written on the Subject. By the Copy Mr houdon has transmitted , of a Note from Mr Grand, it is evident that he at least must have misunderstood me. Hudon...
