I return herewith the Letters which you sent to me by Express. As soon as you have read that from Mr Bradford to me, you will send it tonight to The Secretary of the Treasury, together with the letter to yourself, for his perusal. I shall be in the City tomorrow morning before 8 o’Clock, at which hour I shall expect to see you; & I request you to notify the Secretary of the Treasy thereof,...
At five oclock this afternoon I reached this place, and shall proceed on in the morning. Mr Adams’ Commission, as Minister Resident to the United Netherlands, was signed, if I recollect rightly, before I left Philadelphia. If his letters of Credence are forwarded to me by the Post, they also shall be signed & returned to you; to supersede the necessity of his waiting for them in case every...
(Private) ⟨My⟩ dear Sir, Philadelphia Decr 24th 1793. It was my wish, for many reasons (needless to enumerate) to have retained Mr Jefferson in the Administration to the end of the present Session of Congress, but he is so decidedly opposed to it that I can no longer hint this desire to him. I now wish for your permission to nominate you to it the Office of Secy of State and will add that your...
Your favor of the 2d Ultimo came duly to hand. A tedious and painful disorder which deprived me for many Weeks of the use of my pen, and which consequently required the greater exertion of it when I was able to set up, is the best apology I can make for not having acknowledged the receipt of the above letter sooner.

Your private letters of the 24th & 25th instant have been received, and you will learn by the official letter of this date, my determination of returning to Philadelphia after Monday, if nothing in the interem casts up, to render it unnecessary. I am excited to this resolution by the violent, and extraordinary proceedings which have, and are about taking place, in the Northern parts of the...
In several of the public Gazettes I had read your note to the Editor of the Philadelphia Gazette, with an extract of a letter addressed to me of the 8th instant; but it was not until yesterday, that the letter itself was received. It is not difficult, from the tenor of that letter, to perceive what your objects are; but that you may have no cause to complain of the withholding any paper...
Both your letters, dated the 17th instt, found me at this place, where I arrived on Monday. The letter from the Commissioners to you, I return; as I also do the Gazettes of Pittsburgh & Boston. The proceedings at the latter place are of a very unpleasant nature: the result I forwarded to you from Baltimore, accompanied with a few hasty lines written at the moment I was departing from thence;...
Herewith you will receive two resolves—one of the Senate, dated the 24th; the other of the House of Representatives, dated the 25th instant; accompanying a letter from the Committee of public Safety of the French Republic to Congress requesting the President of the United States to cause the same to be answered, on their behalf. This answer you will prepare accordingly, in terms expressive of...
I have seen the form of the answer which you have drawn in Savages suit, and approve of it; presuming the references are founded on facts. Mr Fairfax was to have compared these, & will prepare a fair copy. I will remind him of the matter, & have it sent to you as soon as I can. The case of the depending petitions, in the General Court, is as follows. The Land was obtained under a Proclamation...
On Wednesday evening, I sent the packet, now under cover with this, to the Post Office in Alexandria; to be forwarded next morning at the usual hour (4 oclock) by the Baltimore mail; but behold! when my letter bag was brought back from the Office and emptied I not only got those which were addressed to me among which yrs of the 27th was one, but those also wch I had Sent up the evening before....
