Your friendly answer to the letter, which I took the liberty of addressing to you in favor of Colo. Heath, has increased the attachment, which your civility to me in 1775, and your public conduct since, first produced My application in that gentleman’s behalf being founded on a conviction of his worth, I conceived, that it might not be improper to make that worth known to all those, who might...
Mr Randolph presents his respectful Compliments to the vice president of the United States, and president of the Senate— In the communications, made by the President this morning, is an Act of the National Convention of France in the original. It’s length prevented an attempt to translate it; as it would occasion too much delay. But if on this or any other occasion when originals are, from the...
I do myself the honor of transmitting to the Senate, the translation of the French act of navigation. It has been executed by the best hand which could be procured; but it is possible, that the novelty of the subject, and certain technical phrases, may have produced inaccuracies. I have the honor to be, &c. Printed Source--American State Papers. 38 vols. (Washington, D.C.: Gales and Seaton,...
I do myself the honor of transmitting to the Senate the translation of a French letter; the original of which was addressed to Congress, and was delivered to me yesterday by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, to be translated. I have the honor, Sir, to be / with the highest respect / yo. mo. ob. serv. DNA : RG 46—Records of the U.S. Senate.
As soon as I received the resolution of the Senate, requiring an abstract to be made of the cases of vexation and spoliation, it was begun. At that time, notwithstanding the pressure of business in the department, I expected soon to accomplish what was called for. But after some days, new cases crouded in so fast; that the number and labour is increased more than four fold. Resuming therefore,...
I now do myself the honor of transmitting to the senate, the abstract of vexations and spoliations of our commerce, which was required by their resolution of the 13th. day of March last. The volume sent will shew, that such a business could not be immediately completed. Indeed, sir, I was compelled, by the burthen of business daily depending and arising in the office, to engage a gentleman of...
You will be so good, as to let it be understood between us, that the mention, which some time ago was made to you by me, of the nomination of your son, was purely confidential between us ; and that on any occasion, which you may have to speak of the time, when it was first known to you, you will refer to the communication of this day only . I am dear sir / with great truth / yr. mo. ob. serv...
E. Randolph presents his best respects to Mr. Adams and informs him, that Mr. Short’s nomination to Madrid must necessarily precede that of his successor to the Hague. Mr. Adams will therefore not be surprized at finding no nomination for the Hague, made to–day. MHi : Adams Papers.
The letter, which Mr. Adams delivered to me from you, was truly acceptable, as well from its friendly style, as the opportunity, which it presented, Of an Acquaintance with him. When he was first contemplated for the Hague, my mind readily embraced the idea, under the influence of his own merit. I must be permitted at the same time to own, that the public services of the father strongly...
I could not resist the impulse of my long affection for Geneva, to postpone for a moment the papers, which you were so obliging as to send me last night. Its fate is truly afflicting and injurious to humanity. The transplantation of its academy would fill up a vast chasm in the Education of the United States. For I do not believe, that a complete system is to be found in any state, and I...
