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...
The perusal of your letter to Judge Tudor, published in a late number, of that valuable work, Nile’s Register, has given me great pleasure & satisfaction. You have done justice to departed worth, by rescuing form oblivion, the conduct & character of one of the earliest & ablest defenders of American rights & liberties. The memory of the illustrious James Otis, too long neglected, will be thus...
It was very flattering to my pride, and grateful to my feelings, to receive your friendly & acceptable favor of the 12. inst. with which I was honored, by the mail of yesterday. This mark of distinguished attention, more prized, as it was unexpected, claims my warmest acknowledgments. To speak with frankly, it was with extreme reluctance I obtruded my hasty note, penned under the impulse of...
Your much esteemed favor of the 26th. ulto. was received, a few days since, when I was occupied at court. My stock of letters & papers, left me, by my father & c uncle, is very large; and it constitutes my principal inheritance, which I prize, beyond any estate, preserved from the wreck of the revolution. The patriotism of that period was without alloy. The perusal of the productions of those...
In the late irreparable loss, you have sustained by a severe dispensation of Divine Providence, I sincerely sympathise with you; but hope that time, reason & religion have administered their consolations, and restored your mind. Permit me to enclose you copies of two letters, from my uncle to my father, at memorable epochs in our Revolutionary annals. The first from New–York when the Stamp Act...
I hope the occasion will induce you to pardon this trespass, on the tranquility of your retirement. The original letter, of which the enclosed is a copy, was lent, some years since, to a friend, who, by accident, mislaid it, and did not find it, until lately, when he returned it to me. This paper relates to the occurrences of that day, the most important, perhaps, in history, on which the...
By this day’s mail I send you Lofts’ Reports which contain Somerset’s case. I found on my way home that the merchants were eluding the embargo, by surrendering up their registers & taking out licenses for coasting. This Mr. Gallatin had an amendment drawn up to prevent. It should pass as soon as possible in the shape of a supplement to the original act. It is a pity the resolution as proposed...
I received this morning your letters with the papers enclosed for Mr. Jackson. You will see by the inclosed letters to the President my opinion of the depositions & the use I contemplate making of them. The President writes me that he will be at Washington by the 16. Inst. so that my letters must not go on to him, but wait his arrival at the seat of Government. Our friend Mr. Jackson merits...
On my arrival here, I found that the District Attorney was at Princeton, & I determined if Burr had not left the city to apply immediately for a warrant & arrest him for treason, so as to secure & have him sent on in custody to Richmond for trial, unless some good natured judge released him upon Hab. Corpus. He has been obli ged in order to elude the Sheriff’s officers who ha ve been in for...
Agreeably to your request contained in your favor of the 1st inst. I enclose a draft in favor of Mr. Milliken for $350. I also have forwarded to J. G. Jackson Esq. an order for $. 500. 5/ 100 in consequence of your letter of the 30th. ulto. & another order, to Mr. Brent as agent of Mr. Gra ham for $.380: 25/ 100 agreeably to your directions of the 26. ulto. Judge Toulmin’s packet, I find on...
