On the subject of a certain office I can with truth assure you that no person can occur, who on the score of qualifications and merit, will appear to me better intitled than yourself; and that I shall take pleasure in mentioning you in this...

Last evening, my dear sir, I had the pleasure to receive your favours of the 12th. & 13th. insts. accept for them and for your friendly congratulation on my appointment to a seat in the senate, my sincere acknowledgments. Believe me, that event, however grateful to my friends, is not pleasing to me. I preferred a seat in the house to any public station whatever, but I had firmly decided to...
I received at Philadelphia your letter of the 27th of July the answer to which has been delayed by excessive occupation. You know, I trust, sufficiently my sentiments of you, not to need being told how much pleasure your appointment gave me, and how highly I value the confidence you express in me. It will probably be unexpected to you to be told that I am not yet in the exercise of the...
