You have laid me under the greatest obligations. The favour that you have done me will be forever remembered. The caution that you suggest shall be observed.

I have obtained a list of all the French Vessels that were captured by the vessels of the U. S. upon comparing that list with your report I find it contains upwards of twenty vessels not included in your report, I have marked all...
The distress of the people of this country under the embargo, is and will be such, that every effort ought to be made to convince them not only of the propriety but the necessity of that measure. In the various communications to Congress, and the publications in the news papers, the justification of this measure is to be found. Unfortunately there is such a Mass before the people, that the...
I have in a few days past received from Virginia $2500, which will prevent the necessity of my availing myself to the utmost extent of your goodness to me. I now only want $2000, for which I have sent a note. Be pleased to return it by the bearer. I am Dear Sir your hum. Serv. RC ( DLC ). Docketed by JM.
