I intended to have availed myself before this time of the permission you was pleased to give me, at a moment which I shall never forget; but indisposition & an uncommon pressure of business have prevented. The last accounts from France mention that General Pinckney had gone to Amsterdam in consequence of orders from the Directory. The treatment he recd was rude and insolent in the highest...
I embrace the earliest opportunity to transmit a Copy of the documents refered to in the Presidents Speech. We hear nothing further that is interesting. It is remarkable that all the foreign Nations with whom we have public intercource bring forward their claims for Gratitude, even the Spaniard contends for his Share. With perfect respect & attachment I remain Dear Sir, your obedt servt ALS ,...
I have had the pleasure to receive your favour of May 15th—and while I rejoice that you enjoy that repose & tranquillity so richly earned by a life of services and benefits for mankind, the reflection, that he who so long directed public opinion, and whose council at this time would possess and deserve universal confidence, is a private Citizen, encites mixed emotions, which I am unable to...
I have the pleasure to acknowledge your favour by the Alexandria mail of May 26th. On applying to the Bank of Pensylvania I was told that no monies had been lodged on your account, by Colo. Shreve or any other person—on shewing your Letter to Mr James Ross, he paid me on account of Colo. Ritchie 3409 20/100 Dollars which I now remit in four Treasury drafts on Mr Fitzgerald endorsed in your...
Mr Ross was out of town when I recd your favour of the 7th instant otherwise I should have immediatly answered it—I have delivered to him, your Receipt. On enquiring at the Bank of Pensylvania this day, I find that no money has been deposited there on your account. Mr Ross says he will receive & prosecute Colo. Shreve’s bond, if you desire it. We have not much other news than appears in the...
I have recd your Letter of the third instant no monies have been deposited by Colo. Shreve, I shall accordingly transmit your Letter to Mr Ross; he went out of Town unexpectedly. I hear that my fathers health is declining, and shall set out for Connecticut to morrow. We have no news—Genl Marshall will sail this week. I am ever with perfect deference your obedt servt ALS , DLC:GW ; copy, CtHi :...
After a painful & inconvenient dispersion the public Officers have returned to this City & resumed business; Congress has at length formed; the Presidents speech at the opening of the Session is inclosed. It is certain that the Envoys have reached Paris; the report that they have been refered to Fauchet & Adet is not confirmed; though by many it is considered as probable. A Mr Barker, offered...
An apology is due for the long delay on my part in replying to your favour of Decr 17th—Mr Barker on the second application informed me that the 500 Dolls. had been placed in Bank to the Credit of Mr Ross, who was not in town—Mr Ross has just arrived & from him I have recd 1961 30/100 which I enclose in a draft on Alexandria—Mr Ross desires a rect. No dispatches have been recd from France the...
I have recd your favour of the 22d instant and feel much chagrin that I did not reply to your private Note: the fact is, that I destroyed it, after perusal & forgot the contents at the time I wrote: Mr Biddies Credit is as good as it has ever been; the misfortunes of the times have rendered his business more profitable than usual—he is understood to possess a handsome property. No Letters have...
I have just recd a Letter for you from General Putnam which he put under cover to me in answer to one transmitted by the request of Mr McHenry. Dispatches have been recd from the Envoys but the contents are yet but partially known; it is certain that no progress towards an accomodation has been made, & not a hope of success exists while the present men, shall continue at the helm of...
