I did not return to Bladensburgh after an absence of 8 or 10 days ’till Monday the 1st. of October, the day of our Election when I found yours to me enclosing a letter to Colo. Mercer. Expecting to find him at Marlborough where the election is held for this part of the District I took his letter with me and not finding him there, I proceeded on to Annapolis, which place he had left for...
I am obliged to you for gratifying my request by sending me a Copy of Co. Mercers letter and of the Certificates of Mr. Hill and Mr. Crawford as it gives me an opportunity of removing any improper impressions that may be made on those who are unacquainted with all the circumstances. It was taken for granted Co Mercer would deny his charges if ever he should be seriously called on to support...
You have been so much harrassed that I am sorry to trouble you so soon—but as I see a Note in the Baltimore Paper that Co Mercer intends to answer my Publication I am induced to request you will favor me, as soon as you conveniently can, with a Copy of the Statement to the President respecting the Bribe, and of the other Communications you promised me—for I shall not be surprised if Co Mercer...
I expected before this Copies of your and Co Mercers Communications & the Statement to the President with the Certificates respecting the Bribe —& I need say nothing farther than that particular circumstances render me more anxious for them than ever. It is still asserted here that you attended the Coffee House on the Evenings the Purchases were made and that it was a common mode of expression...
As it is probable the enclosed might not have come to your knowledge from its contracted circulation I have sent it and you will see my reply to it in the Baltimore Journal of Monday next. Co Mercer has lodged the communications, with Mr. Angell except your last . Mr Angell does not mean to publish them unless he shall give more explicit directions than are contained in his of the 18th of...
Your “Democratic Society” with whatever good ⟨in⟩tentions it may be instituted by some yet I fear ⟨oth⟩ers may wish and hope to give it the conse⟨que⟩nce & power of a Jacobin Club—indeed the ⟨ver⟩y name of the Society holds out an idea to ⟨th⟩e People of America that there are such defects ⟨in⟩ our Government as to require an association to guard against them and will of course become the...
I take it for granted you are very much ingaged and not only on that account will not trouble you but the object of geting the publications signed “Pacificus” is done away by the Sentiment becoming so very general here in support of the measures of Government—& from the little countenance the “Democratic Society” is like to meet with even in Virginia where I was apprehensive a certain Party...
Co Mercer passed through this place yesterday in the Stage on his way as he says to Congress —yet he may perhaps be going no farther than Baltimore but if he should go on it is probable he will be satisfied to have the appearance of closing the correspondence with you as I find he never sent forward to the office your last & has now withdrawn the whole of the papers. If however I should be...
Being engaged in electioneering prevented my writing as soon as I intended that a Mr. Reese (formerly of Baltimore & now connected with a Whole sale Store in Philadelphia) is said to have circulated in George Town, that he had seen, or heard of, a letter of yours to your friends in one of the West India Islands, in which you boasted of the hand you had in promoting our General Government but...
The subject of the letter I alluded to in my last, did not relate to Colo. Mercer but to a public assertion of a letter of yours, being seen in one of the West India Islands in favour of a change of our Government to Monarchy. I had concluded you had agreed with me in sentiment that nothing Co. Mercer could say was worth your notice after I had furnished you with Capt. Campbells & my answer to...
