I have had the Honour to receive, by the British Packet, your Letter of the 9th. & 10th. of last Month. The Assurance, contained in the first of these Letters, of the President’s Approbation of the Manner in which my late Instructions were executed, affords me the most lively Satisfaction; and I beg you to accept my sincere Thanks for the kind and flattering Terms in which you have been so...
I had a long Interview this Morning with Mr. Canning; which has given me Hopes that the object repeal of Orders mentioned in your Letter of the 30th. of April, (a Duplicate by the Packet, for the St. Michael has not yet arrived) may be accomplished, if I should authorize the Expectation repeal of Embargo which the same Letter suggests. Some Days must elapse, however, before I can speak with...
The Committee of Merchants trading to the U. S. have just made an ineffectual attempt to obtain such a Change in the late Orders of Council as should exempt the whole of our Native Commodities from British Duty upon their going on to the Continent. They are said to have required also that American Vessels should be allowed, after touching here in Consequence of being warned under the orders,...
In the absence of the Governor, we have received information from General Smith, that the Spirit of insurrection in the Upper Counties of this State has arisen to so alarming a Heigth, as actually to prompt a part of the misguided Inhabitants to embody for the purpose of marching to Frederic Town, with the object no doubt, of obtaining possession of the State’s armoury and Magazine. The prompt...
I received from Mr. Canning Yesterday, after Lieut. Gibbon had left Town for Plymouth, an official Communication, of which a Copy is enclosed. Mr. Canning had mentioned the Subject of it in a Conversation, to which he had invited me, on Saturday last, but had requested me to consider what he then said as extra official & intended merely for my own personal Information. When the Communication...

I am not able to tell you how much pleasure I have received from the kind Letter which you did me the Honor to send to me by Mr Forrest. When I have said that I consider it as a full Pledge of the Continuance of your good opinion & Regard, I have said every thing. My professional prospects here are as flattering as I could have hoped or desired; and they assure me that, if I am spared for a...
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 22d. of March, and, the packets accompanying it, which were sent to me yesterday by Mr. Rose. That of the 8th. of March has not yet reached me; but Mr. Foster has just told me, that the packet is arrived, and that her letters are in town. We are still without other intelligence of the Osage than that she was visited, (as I have,...
I have the Honor to acknowledge the Receipt of Your Letter of the 18th. of August with its Enclosures extending in some Degree my Powers on the Subject of the Maryland Claim in this Country. As this Letter came to Hand only on Yesterday it will not be expected that I should at this Moment be in a Situation to determine whether the additional Discretion which it confides to me can be made the...
I regret sincerely that my professional Engagements here are so pressing and importunate as to put out of my power to be where my Duty to you requires. I am sure, however, that you will make Allowances for me—especially when you are aware that I am not unmindful, though absent from the Seat of Government, of what I owe to the Strength and prosperity of your administration. The particular...
Mr. Canning had just sent me a note, of which a copy is enclosed, relative to an intended alteration, upon the subject of cotton, in their bill for carrying into execution the late Orders in Council. You will perceive that he lays some stress upon the accidental observations, which (as already explained to you in my letter of the 26th: of last month) were drawn from me, some time since, upon...
The letter herewith enclosed was found on Board a Vessel lately brought into a British Port as Prize. It was sent from the Court of Admiralty to the Foreign Office, & thence to me. You will see in the Morning Chronicle of the 13th. Instant a Copy of an Instruction to British Cruizers; which the Courier of the day before announced as likely to appear in the Gazette of Tuesday last. It has not...
Upon comparing the Copy of the order in Council of the 21st. instant, as delivered to me by Mr. Canning on Saturday last (for his Official Letter did not in Fact enclose any Copy) with the Copy published in the Courier of last Night and the Gazette of Tuesday last, it appears that the Words "until further order shall be made therein" are in my Copy omitted. I have enquired into the Practical...
I intended to have forwarded by this opportunity (via Liverpool) a Duplicate of my p rivate Letter of Yesterday, as well as of my pub lic Letter of the 24th., actually enclosed; bu t there is not Time to have it copied. The orginals go by the Jane for Philadelphia. I transmit, however, another newspaper Copy of the Instruction to B. Cruizers remarked upon in that Letter. I have the Honor to be...
I saw Mr. Canning this Morning, and, taking for granted (as the Fact was), that he was apprized of all that had happened relative to my Dispatch of the 23d. of November last, I thought it prudent to afford him an opportunity of shewing the Effect it had produced upon him, by leading to the Subject myself, as being suggested by the American Newspapers. He had evidently received an Impression...
I thought it possible that the Hornet would touch at Cowes—although I gave no order to that Effect. But I did not expect that Mr. Spence wd. come up to Town, or that the Brig wd. be detained a Moment. My Despatches were sent to Mr Auldjo —to be delivered with the least possible Delay to Mr Spence on Board in Case Circumstances should render it proper for the Brig to call. Mr Spence, however,...
I have received a Letter of which a Copy is enclosed from Mr. Thomas Goodchild, of the Island of Malta, but now in London, the object of which is to solicit through me the Appointment of American Consul and Agent for that Island which he supposes to be vacant. He is introduced and recommended to me by Benjamin Rotch (whom you know I believe) and by William Vaughan who is a respectable Merchant...
I beg your permission to mention to you that Mr. William Kilty calculates upon losing his office of Chancellor of Maryland, on account of federal ascendancy in that State, and that I have reason to believe he would be much gratified by having an opportunity of accepting the Station of Comptroller, which is said to be vacant. I believe Mr. Kilty is well known to you—and consequently that it is...
As Mr. Erving leaves Town early in the Morning and it is now past Midnight I have scarcely Time to do more than acknowledge the Receipt of your kind Letter by Dr Logan. In a few Days I will trouble you with a Letter of some Length. The newspapers will apprize you of the Violence & Injustice of France towards the U. S. I hope it will be found possible (at least until England does us Justice) to...
I send you enclosed a Duplicate of my public Letter of the 2d. Instant, and by the same opportunity the interesting Correspondence between the Danish Chargé d’Affaires and Lord Howick, in March last, relative to the British orders in Council of the 7th. of Jany. 1807; together with printed Copies of some other papers laid before Parliament, and Packets of Newspapers & Pamphlets. You will find...
I have the Honor to enclose a Duplicate of my private Letter by Dr. Bullus, to which I beg leave now to add that, as it appeared on a Re-examination of Mr. Canning’s Note to which it refers, that he had probably supposed the Commission-Extraordinary to have expired, it was thought proper at a late Conference with the special Mission to suggest to him that it was still & would continue to be in...
The Letters herewith enclosed, marked in red Ink No. 2. 3. 31. 32. 34. 35. & 36, were found on board the American Schooner Hope lately captured on a Voyage from Bourdeaux to New York by an English Privateer. They were brought into the high Court of A dmiralty with the other Letters & Papers found on board the captured Vessel; a nd upon my Application to Mr. Canning have just been sent to me...
The Case to which the enclosed papers relate may perhaps be thought to require the Interposition of the President. I have not supposed it to be proper to mention the Subject to this Government; but it appears to be certain that the Functions of the Consulate at Hull ought not to be left with Mr. Knox, and that the person employed by General Lyman is in all Respects qualified for such an...
I have the Honor to acknowledge the Receipt of your Letter of the 4th. of April by Mr Bethune, tog ether with the printed and other Copies of the let ters mentioned in it. I am to have an Interview with Mr. Canning in a few Days (which he will agree to consider ex tra official) in the Course of which I intend to press, by every argument in my Power, the pro priety of their abandoning...
We have the Honor to transmit herewith enclosed a Copy of a List lately prepared by us of the American Claims depending before our Board, in which the actual State of each Claim in reference to the judicial Remedy, and of course to the extraordinary Title to Redress under the Treaty is explained. To render this List perfectly intelligible it may be proper, after so long a suspension of our...
Mr. John Lloyd Halsey, who is about to return to the U. S. and will be the Bearer of my Dispatches, proposes soon after his Arrival in America, to go to Washington, and has requested me to introduce him to you, and through you to the President, altho’ he is already, as I believe, known to both. I do this very readily because I have understood & believe him to be a Man of Worth & Honor. He has...
An Opportunity offers of sending P ackets of Newspapers to Falmouth; but I have no Time (as the Person leaves To wn this Evening) to write; and I have, indeed, nothing of Importance to communicate. Your Letters &c by Mr. Bethune we re delivered to me this Morning. Th e Packet sails very soon; and I will not fail to write by her. I have the Honor to be with sincere Esteem and Respect Dear Sir,...
I have only this Moment seen your obliging Invitation to Dinner for Monday last. It was left in the office of the Clerk of the Supreme Court and was delivered to me upon my coming into Court today. I gave a Sketch of the Clauses, which I undertook to draw, to the Chairman of the Committee of foreign Relations of the Senate, yesterday. The principal Clause will I suppose be offered as an...
I do not perceive that the General Government could well interfere upon the subject of the Letter, which you did me the Honour to enclose to me even if it were desirable that it should; but I am quite sure that it will be wholly unnecessary. There is no Disposition to Riot here except with a mere Handful of low people, who can and will be restrained by the Authority of the Majistracy of the...
I omitted to mention in my late Letters, that at my second Interview with Mr. Canning he suggested incidentally that the late Order in Council or Proclamation, relative to Spain, opened the Ports of that Country, not in the occupation of France, to a direct Trade between those Ports & the United States. As I had in View a complete Revocation of the Orders of Jany. & November 1807, & the orders...
I take the Liberty to trouble you with a personal Concern, which I ought perhaps to have mentioned sooner. I have understood it to be the Rule of the Government that an Envoy Exty. has his Expences to the Place of his Mission, and his Salary. I came here as Special Envoy, with an eventual Commission as the ordinary Minister at this Court, in which Character, it was supposed, not only when I...
As I know you take an Interest in the Views & opinions of our Friends in England I take the Liberty to enclose a short Letter just received from Alexander Baring. There is not much in it—but it may be worth reading. I hope to be in Washington on Sunday next. With true Attachment I have the Honour to be—Dear Sir, respectfully your faithful & Ob Servant RC ( DLC ). Enclosure not found.
The Gentleman who takes my Letters (to go by the Science) not having yet left Town, I have an Oppy. of saying, that the Admy. has recd. Advice from the Senior Officer of the British Forces cruizing off L’orient, dated the 22d. of last Month, that an American Merchant Vessel, about to enter that Port as a Flag of Truce, had just been brought to & examined & suffered to proceed, having shewn the...
I have the Honor to enclose an En glish Newspaper containing a Copy of the additional orders of Council, p ublished in Saturday’s Gazette, s upplementary to those already tra nsmitted. The Attempt which I suggested in my Letter of the 23d. would probably be made, by some of the Merchants tr ading to The United States, towards the Modification of the Orders of
