I am happy to learn by yr. Postscript that all our Foreign affairs remain in Statu quo. You request some information with respect to the arming of private Vessels for St. Domingo —the subject is scarcely mentioned here— None having attempted to arm from this port. Many unarmed Vessels have endeavoured to pursue that trade but they have been mostly taken—no great alarm is excited on that...
From the size of the inclosed I presume Mrs. Cutts is supplied by her Sister with whatever in our present situation may be interesting to our particular friends. In the letter with which you favored me some time ago it was intimated that Dr. E. was not averse to some foreign employment. This is a subject on which as you may suppose it is the inclination & practice of the Ex. to enter as little...
The abuses committed occasionally on our vessels & seamen carried to Antigua, where there is a Vice Admiralty Court said to be little disposed to controul them, makes it desireable that a respectable agent should be appointed for that Island. A Mr. Rose has been recommended for this service; and Mr. Gray of Salem, and Mr. Green of Boston have been referred to for a sanction to the fitness of...
I have letters from Monroe of the 11th. of March ⟨He⟩ had conversed with Fox & Gray at some length, and found both not only w⟨el⟩l disposed; but avowing opinions which flattered his hopes of an adjustment of the most difficult points. Still nothing was avowed as th⟨e⟩ decision of the Cabinet. On the whole our prospect ⟨in⟩ that quarter ⟨i⟩s not unfavorable. You can’t expect me to dwell long on...
I am desired by the friends of Mr. John H Andrews the Son in Law of Colo. Hitchborn to recommend him as a suitable person to be appointed Consul at the Havanna tis said the present Consul has returned to the United States & is about to resign. Mr. Andrews has resided some time past at the Havanna, as a Merchant, holds a fair character & is beloved by his Countrymen. I am not personally...
I have two favors to thank you for. I can not yet satisfy your curiosity as to the progress of things at London & with Spain. Of the last we have no accounts since I wrote to you. We have letters from Monroe down to May 20. The knowledge of the prohibitory Act had reached England and produced some sensation. No reason appeared however for supposing it would otherwise affect the negociation...
Letter not found. 23 August 1809. Acknowledged in JM to Cutts, 7 Sept. 1809 . Mentions the favorable disposition of some New England Federalists.
Your favour of the 23d came duly to hand. I wish the favorable dispositions you speak of may continue to increase among those whose weight has heretofore been unfortunately shuffled into a foreign scale against that of their own Country, and even against that in which their own immediate and particular interests were placed. It will probably soon be seen how far the arrival of Jackson with his...
I have recd. your favor of the 16th. by the mail which brought the result of the Election at Salem. The general result I infer will fulfill your wishes. The atmosphere has for several days been filled with reports of an engagement between the Frigate commanded by Rogers and a British frigate. You will estimate the testimony by the Contents of the inclosed papers. The occurrence is in itself so...
Letter not found. 29 May 1811. Mentioned in JM to Cutts, 16 June 1811 , as transmitting the news of the Republican ascendancy in the Massachusetts legislature.
