Your letter of May 10 was received during the absence of the President as well as myself from the seat of Government; and since our return the preparations for the meeting of Congress, have prevented an earlier acknowledgment of it. In communicating to you the Presidents acceptance of your resignation, I have the pleasure to inform you, that you hold the same place in his favorable opinion, as...
The President having given his permission to Governor Claiborne to be absent from the Territory of Orleans; provided nothing of a public nature to render it inconvenient should intervene, and that he should not leave it before your actual return. You will therefore be pleased to regulate your return, according to the knowledge you have of the time when the governor intends to depart for the...
I herewith enclose the instructions in pursuance of which you are to make an investigation into certain projects Said to be on foot in the western Country adverse to the Unity and the peace of the nation. I am persuaded that this trust will be executed by you in the manner expected by the President, and with the effect which public considerations require. You will feel the importance of...
I avail myself of an express going from the War Department, to acknowledge the receipt of your several letters, as marked below, and the last of which informs me that you were at Nashville, on the 14th. Ult, on your return to New Orleans. I have the pleasure at the same time to express to you the satisfaction which you have given to the President, in the execution of the important & intricate...
Presuming that it was not essential to provide for remittances to Mr. Short and that arrangements for it might leak out, I omitted to say any thing on the subject. It will be proper however to let him know on what fund he may draw in Europe, or desire him if not too late to name one himself, and get Mr. Gallatin to provide accordingly if necessary by some general deposit. An immediate line to...
I have recd. yours accompanied by the Resolution of M. T. recommending 10 persons &ca. with Poindexters seclection [ sic ]. As I presume there is no blank commission signed for such a case, I must ask you to forward one without delay; and you will oblige me further, by any lights you can throw on the characters in question. I am a stranger to all of them. Should there be a blank Commission in...
I now return you the Copy of Clarke agst. Wilkinson, with my thanks for your attention in forwarding it. I have not had time to do more than to turn over a few casual pages; but having just recd. another Copy, it is unnecessary to detain that belonging to the office. I return also the letters recd. by yesterday’s mail. Would it not be proper to let Mr. Rodney have the contents of that from...
The arrival of the Mail has just brought me yours of the 1st. inst: and with it the inclosed letters from Govr. Holmes. You will observe that he concurs with Mr. P. in three of the Selections; and that the two names on which he differs, stand first in the legislative nomination. I have signed the Commission, leaving the blanks to be filled; according to the Govrs. recommendation; substituting...
I drop you this merely to intimate my purpose of setting out for Washington on friday next and to request that nothing may be forwarded after Wednesday next. Letters &c. put into the mail on that day will get to hand in time, as I shall be at home after the hour at which the Rider arrives. You will have noticed the return of the letter of Turreau, supposed to have been omitted at the office of...
The writer of the inclosed letter, sent ⟨me⟩ a long time ago, a most voluminous manuscript in French on the subject of F. & English grammer, with a wish that I might approve & patronize its publication. Having neither time nor competency to decide on the merits of the work, it was examined by a Critical judge on such subjects; who discouraged the experiment of printing it, tho’ he did justice...
I have just recd. your favor of the 8th. with the copy of Mr. P.’s letter of June 13th. The same mail brings me a letter from Mr. Erving, in which he says he should be in Washington in a few days. Having not time to write to him, be so good as to tell him, that if it should be within the scope of his arrangements, not to be stationary, I shall be happy to find his movements take this...

Mr. Gelston declines the service, & Mr. Joel Roberts Poinsett, now in N. York will undertake it; but, to guard agst. contingencies, the documents may leave a blank for the name, to be filled by Mr. Gallatin, to whom they may be inclosed. The alterations wished in the new form are noted. The blanks for Peru & Chili are to be filled with the ports of consequence, nearest the seats of Govt. If...
Your favor of the 20th. has come duly to hand. I well recollect the rect. of the paper you were searching for, and can not but think that it is somewhere in the office. It would seem, that Barnet either had not recd. the order of Skipwith to deliver the Books, or had disobeyed it. The retention of them is so palpably improper, that it justifies the suspicions entertained of some improper view...

I have recd. your favor of the 26th. I can not recollect off-hand, very much about the letter from Turreau to R. Smith, of which a Translation is printed in Georgetow⟨n⟩. My general impression is that it was considered at the time as highly exceptionable in several passages; that it was noticed that T. by a ruse diplomatique, which distinguished between the existing & preceding...
¶ To John Graham. Letter not found. 13 May 1815. Described in Stephen Pleasonton to JM , 18 May 1815 , as requesting Graham’s assistance with “business mostly private,” including a payment to “Genl Taylor” (probably James Taylor of Kentucky).
I return the papers sent with yours of the 29th: except the letter from E. Lewis, which goes to the Treasy. Dept. If Mr. B. has no more power than to receive proposals, I sd. have supposed his object in an interview wd. have been simply to ask for them, with an assurance of the General disposition of his Govts. to receive them favorably, and that the uncertainty or misconception occasioned by...
I return the letter of Mr. Poinsett with the Spanish documents inclosed in it. They coincide with other disclosures of the policy of G. B. at a certain period at least, in favor of Spain, and agst. the U. S. I add to these inclosures two letters from Buenos Ayres of which the Mr. Thomson named by you was the bearer. Your communication of these to Mr. Monroe, will enable him to hold the usual...
The Spanish Documents inclosed; with the letter from Mr McCall, were sent to me by Mr. Dallas: They are curious and interesting. Mr. Dallas is apprized that they would be communicated to the Dept. of State. As he is or soon will be in Washington, you will be able to know from him whether he chooses that they shd. remain there. If his choice be to repossess them you will return them, taking...
I have duly recd. the copy of your Memoirs of J. H. Tooke, with which you have been pleased to favor me. Having never entered particularly into the enquiries concerning the authorship of the letters of Junius, I am among those least competent to judge between the Candidates for that celebrity. If you have not established the title of Tooke, you have at least set aside that of some others, and...
