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 &...
I beg leave again to remind your Excellency that in none of the french colonies have they received from the Court of France (officially) the Convention with the United States respecting Consuls &c.—therefore no one of their Governors or Commandants can grant me the necessary exequateur or receive me in any form.

States, who at present reside in the french W. Islands. Say. Geo. Patterson, St. Pierre M/que from Balto., brother of Mr. Patterson Director of the Bank....
Owing to the long and obstinate continuance of the unhappy disputes of Martinique, and finding myself on that account no less than for want of instructions from you, unable to render much service in my official capacity, I have within the last fortnight been induced to make this my place of residence, meaning to await the reestablishment of order in that distracted island and likewise the...
Richmond, 1 Nov. 1789 . He thinks it probable that TJ has heard through Short “of the almost unparalleled misfortunes, which through an act of Providence in one instance and the bankruptcy of a man in another, are likely to deprive me of a handsome Competence … made by prudence and industry.” An “evil of no less magnitude” is that he is likely to “be thrown out of all Connexions in business.”...
Bordeaux, 1 Feb. 1789 . Intends to embark for Virginia this month or next, and asks TJ’s commands, as well as whether he intends to embark in the spring, “that I may bear the pleaseing intelligence to your friends on Appomatox,” who were well in November but reported the sickliest autumn in memory.
