I send a Copy for Capt Marston P.S. I have much alarmed myself respecting the probability of a separation of the states. My friends generally are tranquil on the subject.

Your favour of the 29th. ult. which I recd yesterday, distressed me. I cannot, however, allow myself to believe for a single moment that you anticipated such a consequence. It appears to imply that for the sake of disposing of a few more copies of the Naval History, I had departed from your instructions; & sent states that instead of one per every mail, I had sent two or three. Were I capable...
I am sorry to inform you that I cannot procure a copy of The Life of Jackson, of wh this Edition is sold out. I send by this mail a copy of the Olive Branch, of which I request your acceptance. The very brief vindication of the work on the American Constitutions, is contained in page 39. I regret that it is so concise. If you have duplicate copies of any of Your recent newspaper or other...
I have recd your favour of the 20th and should have before now sent you a copy of the Olive Branch; but the first Edition is so very imperfect, having been very much hurried in the execution, that I determined to wait till the second is ready. This will probably be about the middle of next week. Mean while I send you by this opportunity such part of the new one as is ready. You may from thence...
Your favour of the 9th. I have only recd. & Feel gratified that the note in the Olive Branch is satisfactory. It was an amende honorable, called for not only by justice to you & the valuable work it refers to, but a Regard to my own feelings. I have always regarded the acknowledgment of error as more honourable than the defence of truth. For one person capable of the former virtue, there are...
I recd from my venerable & respected friend, Dr Rush, sundry communications from you , forwarded by you for the use of the author of the Naval History, which I have just published. I now return them with thanks. A mistake of the post office prevented the first of them coming early enough to answer the purpose. I request your acceptance of a copy of the work, which I send herewith. Any As it...
Your favour of the 1st. which I recd yesterday, is before me. I observe its contents. While I sympathize with you in the domestic afflictions which produced the chasm in our correspondence, I must needs observe that your letter gave me sincere pleasure. I was seriously apprehensive that I had inadvertently, in some of my letters, given you offence. I most perfectly accord with you on the...
Absence from home, & want of Leisure, have prevented me returning an earlier answer to your very kind & friendly letter of the 9th. inst. Should any such intermission occur at any time hereafter I rely upon your goodness to ascribe it to the real cause, my being borne down by the pressure of business. It is highly gratifying to find that notwithstanding the various disadvantageous...
