I have the honor to inclose three draughts of a letter to the Queen of Portugal, in answer to hers of the 12th of October last, now inclosed, which the Chevalier de Freire handed to me since your departure, with an open copy of which he has favoured me with the inclosed translation; stating the birth of a grandson. The Chevalier about the time of your departure was going to wait on you to...
Of the two applicants for the office of Treasurer of the mint mentioned by Judge Patterson, one of them, Mr. Huger, must be in some measure known to you. I have several times seen him at the boarding house of Mr. Goodhue, Hillhouse &c. in Philadelphia, and from his conversations I had placed his abilities in the lowest grade. I understand he was sometimes disabled by the gout; & am much...
The President set out early this morning for Mount Vernon; and soon after, his address to the people of the United States appeared in Claypoole’s news-paper. Of this public declaration, that he will not be a candidate for the office of President, at the ensuing election, I supposed it would be grateful to you to receive the earliest advice. The sentiments he has expressed on the occasion may...
As the information contained in the inclosed letter from Theodore Foster esqr. may possibly become a subject of public speculation, I think it proper to lay it before you. My information of Gerbier’s enquiry of the Christian name of Mr. Foster comes from our consul at the Cape, who knew not the object of the enquiry. Mr. Foster’s letter explains it. I also have the honour to inclose a copy of...

On the 9th I wrote you a...
This morning I was honoured with your letters of the 28th, 29th & 30th ult.

Within two or three days past you will find that I sent a...
The Secretary of State has prepared, as directed, and now respectfully submits to the President of the United States, copies of the papers, which probably were contemplated by the House of Representatives, in their resolve of the 4th. instant: Altho’ no requisition, as the resolve supposes, has ever been received, nor any communication made to the Judge of the District Court of South Carolina,...
Since closing my other letter of this date, I have received a packet from Mr. Pitcairn, with the inclosed note and pamphlet (Le Spectateur du Nord) for you. In his letter to me, he says he sends 1. one large letter for the President & do. for you; both from Mr. Adams. There was none for you, except the pamphlet & P’s note. Mr. Adams was near concluding a commercial treaty with Prussia: I will...
I have the honor to inclose the petition of Robert Worrall, a prisoner in the gaol of Philadelphia, convicted of a misdemeanor, in offering a bribe to Tench Coxe the late Commissioner of the Revenue. I formerly mentioned his case to you, in consequence of the application of two respectable citizens of Philadelphia, whose information greatly extenuated the offence, and satisfied me that Worrall...

I inclose a letter which came to hand yesterday under a cover from a Christopher McPherson at Norfolk. A letter...
