I have just arrived at this place from Paris, & hasten to avail myself of an opportunity (which this Moment offers itself) of sending on four Packets which were instrusted [ sic ] to me by Mr Levingston, for you. I also send one for the President from some Gentleman in Paris. These Packets will go to New York in the Ship Orlando, now waiting below for her Papers which will be sent on to Night....
The Letter which I had the Honor of addressing to you from Nantes, will have informed you of my going to Paris, & of the reasons which induce’d me to do so. As this Journey was undertaken with the advice of Mr Levingston, I hope, you will not think, I have done wrong in deviating from my most direct route to Madrid. Disappointed in the Hope of finding Mr Pinckney in Paris, I waited there,...
Some time since I had the Honor of addressing you, to return my thanks for the Kentucky Papers which you had the Goodness to send me; and also to express my mortification for having troubled you with a request concerning pecuniary matters on which the Law had not given you power to decide. Since then I have not taken the Liberty to write to you; but as Mr Codman offers to me a safe conveyance...
It is with Regret I call your attention to an affair which concerns myself as an Individual; but the Circumstances which I am about to mention will I hope plead my Apology for doing so. When Mr Pinckney had presented me to His Catholic Majesty as Chargé des affaires of the United States and was himself about to depart for Italy, I asked him to give me a credit with his Banker, for my Salary...
I have the honor to inform you, that the Court left Barcelona on the 8th. Inst. for Valencia, and on the same day Mr. Pinckney resumed his Journey for Italy. I accompanied him to Barcelona for the purpose of being presented as Chargé des Affaires, during his absence, in which capacity I am at present recognized. About ten days ago I returned to Madrid, and should have written you sooner, but...
The last letter which I had the honor to address to you (on the 29th ulto.) will give a general idea of the state of our affairs, at the time when it was written. Since then, some events have taken place, with which it is proper that you should be acquainted, and as I am particularly anxious to give you every useful information in my power, I have determined to send you copies of the letters I...
As the order of the Board of Health of which I have had the honor to inclose you a Copy in my Dispatch of the 29th. Decr. has been approved of, by His Catholic Majesty—it will probably occasion a great sensation in the United States, for against them, it seems to be particularly levelled. Satisfied in my own mind that our Government ought not to pass over this measure without some...
1 February 1803, Madrid. Has “this day” received JM’s 25 Oct. , 27 Nov. , and 1 Dec. letters to Pinckney. “The first was by Duplicate, for Captain Eldred has not come forward with the original. Your letter of the 1st. December, is therefore in time to answer its purpose.” As Pinckney wrote from Naples on 2 Jan. that he would arrive by mid-February, will do nothing now regarding the business in...
8 February 1803, Madrid. Acknowledged receipt on 1 Feb. of JM’s 25 Oct., 27 Nov., and 1 Dec. dispatches for Pinckney. Will meet Pinckney at Aranjuez with the dispatches, “sensible that not a moment ought to be lost” in obtaining a royal order countermanding that of the intendant of New Orleans, which he sees by the newspapers “has engaged the attention of Congress, & drawn a very solemn...
You will see from the Dispatches which go by the Gentleman who takes this Letter that this Government have at last given a possitive answer to Mr Pinckneys Representations relative to the occlusion of the Port of New Orleans. I shall rejoice if this Answer reaches you before that place passes into the hands of the French for I am convinced there is but one way left, by which we can now obtain...
