Be not offended that I write to you from the Cells of a Bastile—You are Acquainted with the Chief Justice of Pensylvania, and if my own sentiments does not inform you , He can, inform you Whether I am worthy Your attention or not— And however I may be viewed myself, I view you and him as having co-operated in the same principles through the Revolution and as Two shining stars in that political...
After a very arduous struggle our election has terminated against us apparently . I say apparently because I beleive had they voted in Sussex no more than they have actually qualified votes we must have succeeded. In that County I had One thousand & fifty three votes & my friend Hasllet who resides there One thousand & Forty one: I presume they polled none for either of us but what were good;...
The enclosed is from a Republican of Sussex County in our State. He has long been a surveyor there, & is very well acquainted with that business. This has called his attention to the subject of the magnet of which he attempts to give a theory, which he requested me to submit to your consideration. He has been much prosecuted in our State & tho in very moderate circumstances has been compelled...

At the term before he did not attend, because he was preparing for his trial. At neither term however was there any business for him to do, notwithstanding all the noise & clamour on the subject...
I cannot avoid transmitting you the enclosed letter from my father, which was forwarded to me this day from Philada. Tho’ the Government may perhaps have received more correct & detailed information on the subject, especially if the directions given by my father have been complied with. If the Spanish Government are concerned in the business, I suspect, their agency is concealed in the...
On my return to this place (where I took refuge from the yellow fever) from attending the Circuit & State Court below I had the pleasure of receiving your favor of the 23d. ulto. It is matter of deep & lasting regret that any division should have taken place in the Republican party, but more especially such an one as paves the way for the triumph of that pernicious system & its adherents which...

His political principles are those of a genuine Republican. He is going on business to Virginia & wishes on his way to call & pay his personal respects to you. I am Dear Sir Yours Very...
The intelligence contained in the enclosed, is at this crisis, so interesting & important, that I transmit it to you by the return of the same mail which brought it on, lest by some accident the official dispatches may not have yet reached you.

I cannot but express the sincere satisfaction, I feel on the appointment of an old Revolutionary officer, to a post which will render him comfortable. Genl. Shee is entitled to great credit for the purity & uniformity of his principles & conduct. He withstood persecution in the Federal reign of terror in 98’ & resisted temptation in the unfortunate struggle of 1805. in this state. From the...
