I shall make no apology for addressing to you with this a paper which has lately been received by me through the post office, with a few lines from an anonymous hand, together with a copy of a Note which that paper has induced me to address to his Excelcy. the Minister of Exterior Relations.—I am ignorant whether this paper will not soon, or may not already have been Communicated to you in a...
I received by Genl. Armstrong the letter you have done me the favor to write in date of the 11th. of July last. The sentiments, which that letter expresses in support of the high character & personal independence of the General, I would at all times have been disposed to respect; but under existing circumstances, how much more consolatory to my feelings is it, to add that, after acquaintance &...
For some time past, I have been waiting to obtain from Havre & Rouen, a note of the expences paid by Mr. Mitchell & Mr. White on the ten hampers of Wine shipped from Havre for your account, in order to furnish you with a general account of their cost & charges, which are as follows fs. C. fs. for 400 Bottles non-mosseux Wine a 3.75 1500.—. 101 do    Chambertin  do. 3.25 353.50. Expences paid...
I was favored about the middle of June with your letter of the 4th. May, with a remittence, in a bill on Messrs. Dupont de Nemours pere et fils & Co., for 2100 francs, to be invested in Wines, principally of the non-mosseux Champagne. Your predilection in favor the Wines raised formerly by Mr. Dorsay induced me to address myself to his family, he though living being ruined & insane. By his...
The bearer of this Mr. Thos. L. Halsey , a Gentleman of very distinguished connexions in the State of Rhode Island informed me of his intention of waiting on you soon after his return to his native Country, and having expressed his design of soliciting a grade in the army of the U.S. is willing to charge himself with a letter of recommendation from me, with others from several of your friends...
I cannot let pass the opportunity by Mr. Dupont, of saying in this private manner some things which I am desirous of communicating to you, my dear Sir, but which I should feel an awkwardness in making the subject of a letter to the Department of State.—I shall in doing this expect your indulgence; perhaps, because I have so often experienced it. In a sketch here inclosed I have hazarded, for...
I leave to Mr. Barlow , who writes to you by Mr. Lee the confidential bearer of his and this letter, to trace the rise and progress of the present alarming indisposition of this Government towards ours; but being more frightened than perhaps my friend Mr. Barlow is at the dangers which threaten the peace and safety of my Country, I am irrisistably led to express my fears to the man of my...
Many details of the disaster which have befallen this devoted Island have doubtless reached you e’er this—and in no one can any great exaggeration have been made of the waste and horrors mutually committed by the two contending parties. The Royalists, however, are entirely driven from the Island with the British armament at their heels. Whether they will repeat their visit or not after the...
It is now a week since the Vessel in which I took my passage from Boston, came into this place, (a small port in the Windward part of the Island) where is exhibited the most terrible scene of distress and Confusion immaginable. About a month ago it seems that the Planters were advised of the arrival of the British fleet, at Barbados, and at the same time they received Assurance that the object...
In order to save the remnant of a little property, which, from the Situation of Martinique, I have been obliged to leave behind me, I am under the necessity of returning once more to that unhappy Island. What the posture of affairs there, may be on my arrival I can hardly hazard a conjecture; should, however, its Inhabitants have been brought under obedience to the reigning Government of...
