It is with much regret I inform you of the unfavourable result of the election in our State. Mr. Bayard is reelected by a majority of 300. votes. The Federal ticket having succeeded by about 90 votes in Kent County, the Governor is about convening the legislature, who will choose the Electors of a President & V. President. From what I have understood in conversation from some of our leading...
Your esteemed favor of the 21. inst: was transmitted from Wilmington this morning to me at this place, where I generally spend Christmas week ever since my marriage with the daughter of Capt: John Hunn of this City. I most sincerely regret the situation in which an equality of votes for the Republican candidates is likely to place us, but in case of such an event I should calculate with great...
I had the pleasure of writing to you some time since from Philada. in answer to a letter I had the honor to receive from you whilst on a visit there. Our legislature have adjourned after passing the canal law on such terms I hope, as will secure the execution of the design. It was not done however without a great struggle. We did not appoint any senator in the place of Dr. Latimer & I...
The ardent wishes of the friends of the revolution have been realized in the exaltation of yourself who laid the corner stone & who has ever been a firm & uniform supporter of its principles to the Presidential chair. The universal joy diffused over the whole face of the Country on this happy event is better felt than described. I believe among all who rejoiced none experienced more heartfelt...
Altho’ as I stated in conversation before I left Washington, I was convinced the public mind here would be excited, by the extraordinary manner in which the appointment of Marshall was obtained, as well as by the appointment of the person himself, yet I did not suppose the impression would have been So deep and so general. It has turned out on enquiry as I apprehended when I saw you, that not...
Some time after my return home I wrote a letter to Mr. Madison on the subject of the late appointment in this State, in which I gave a pretty full account of what had occurred relative thereto. I shall not trouble you therefore on that head. I will only observe that every day furnishes us with new proofs of the propriety of the opinions contained therein for I really do scarcely know of a...
I returned late last evening from a political tour of about two weeks in the lower counties of this State. I travelled with the acts of congress the annual reports of the Secretary of the Treasury & other documents in my hands to meet the Federalists on their strongest grounds. We have followed the example of the worthy Duvall & the other Republicans of Maryland in addressing the people on the...
I had the pleasure of receiving your letter in answer to mine announcing the election of Col: David Hall as Governor of this State. Since that time I have been on the Circuit attending to the duties of my profession, but at the same time to those which demand a due portion of care in relation to society. Our small majority gave birth to a sentiment in some breasts favorable to controverting...
Notwithstanding the Opposers of the Republican Administration have prevailed on our Chancellor (whose age had rendered him an easy prey) to resign, & by that means have obtained the appointment of his successor who will be our present Atty. Genl. N. Ridgely whose place will also be filled by them they have contrary to my expectation & that of our friends determined I understand to dispute the...
The paper enclosed directed to yourself I wrote a few days ago. Since that time I have been waiting, in order if possible further to discover their real intentions & penetrate their designs. Unless we are serious in the business I am persuaded they will persevere to the end. If they do, they effectually destroy all hopes of success on our part at the next election & I fear will blast all our...
