I had the Honor by the last Mail to acknowledge the receipt of your Letter of the 24th. Inst. and to inform you that a Commission for Mr Freeman as Surveyor of the Public Lands South of Tennessee had been sent to the Treasury. The Papers for Mr Poinset have been made out agreeably to your direction and sent to the Secy of State who is now at Baltimore for his Signature. Mr P. will get to...
Letter not found. 30 August 1810. Acknowledged in Graham to JM, 3 Sept. 1810 . Asks Graham to examine the registers delivered to the State Department by Mrs. Skipwith to see whether they contain the papers JM had requested earlier. Also inquires about the delegation of executive powers under the law of June 1794.
I received this Morning the Letter which you did me the Honor to write to me on the 30th Ult. and shall before next Mail look thro: the Registers left here by Mrs Skipwith for the purpose of ascertaining whether they contain any entries or Copies corresponding to the Papers you have asked for. Our Records do not shew that any delegated Power has been given by the President under the Law of...
Agreeably to your request I have looked thro: the Registers sent here from Paris and do not find that they contain any thing in relation to the Paper you want. They are a strange compound of Public & Private Papers—tho their general Character is I think decidedly official. I understood from Mr Skipwith when he was here, that he had directed them to be sent to the Dept of State 1st Because he...
I have the Honor to send you inclosed the proceeds of your Check in my favor—in such notes as you requested that is to say— 6 of 50 = 300. 10 – 20 = 200 10 – 10 = 100— 600 in all. The Eastern end of the City is represented to be sickly; but the West end and George Town are not at all so. On Saturday we received from Mr Pinkney a Packet of News Papers; but no Letters. The News Papers you will...
I have the Honor to forward to you by this Mail a copy of a Letter received yesterday from Mr Robertson, and also copies of a letter from Mr Pinkney and its inclosures. The originals have all been sent to the Secretary of State. I retained for you the Quarterly Review and Cobbets Register, which came with Mr Pinkneys Letter. You will receive them by the Mail which takes this. I was very happy...
J Graham has the Honor to inform the President that a Letter has this Moment been received from Mr Pinkney dated 31st July—to say that the Bills in favor of Brown for £8,400 Stg had been paid. The Baring’s have received the Money on account of the UStates. Mr P. gives no news of any kind. Mr Maury writes under date 10th Augt that American Produce was very abundant at Liverpool and falling in...
J Graham has the Honor, by direction of the Secretary of State, to forward to the President the inclosed Letter from General Armstrong and to inform him that it is the same which he lately sent to this Department unopened. RC ( DLC ). Graham probably forwarded the original of Armstrong’s 5 May 1810 dispatch to Robert Smith ( DNA : RG 59, DD , France). A duplicate had reached Washington in...
The Packet for the Secretary ⟨o⟩f State containing the Letters which I supposed you would wish to read, is left open—and put under Cover to you. I have supposed that this would be the most convenient arrangment. Should you prefer any other you will be pleased to let me know. Mr Barlow left us yesterday intending to Lodge at Marlbro: and to get to Annapolis early today. We have furnished him...
The Letter which you did me the Honor to write to me on the 10th Inst. I received yesterday, together with those which it covered. I have now the pleasure to return Mr. Adams’s (Letter) de cyphered: with the other I can as yet do nothing. I will make an effort before the departure of your next Mail to find out generally its objects; but I am by no means confident that I shall be able to do...
Not being able to hear of any one here who understood the Portuguese Language—I have endeavoured myself to find out what was the object of the writer of the Letter you sent me. It seems to be to induce you to enter into an alliance with England against France: and to propose to all the Nations “of Asia, Africa, Europe and America” to make common cause against her—to forbid all commerce or...
Letter not found. 31 August 1811. Acknowledged in Graham to JM, 3 Sept. 1811 . Transmits a memorandum of purchases to be made and forwarded by Mr. Barry.
Mr Hamilton arrived last Night with the Despatches by the “John Adams.” By the advice of his Father I have decided that he should go on with them to you—thinking it probable that you might wish to make some enquiries of him on subjects not touched on in the Letters. It was my intention not to have opened any of the Despatches but I thought it right to inform the Heads of Departments who were...
I should have answered by the last Mail, the Letter you did me the Honor to write me, expressing a hope that my Health was returning; had I not been so sick on the day of its departure that I could not sit up. In consequence of a powerful dose of medicine, I am some what better, and have begun again to take Bark tho: I very much doubt whether my Stomach is properly prepared for it. The City is...
Letter not found. 16 September 1811. Acknowledged in Graham to JM, 18 Sept. 1811 . Forwards a check for $1,200 and requests Graham to send him the same amount in Virginia banknotes.
Finding myself better today than I have been since I was last taken sick I rode to the Office this Morning and found on my Desk the Letter you did me the Honor to write to me on the 16th. I immediately sent to the Bank and have been enabled to get Virginia Notes for the amount of the Check excepting $100 which is sent in a note of the Bank of Columbia. I was some what at a loss whether you...
I had the Honor by the last Mail to acknowledge the receipt of your Letter of the 16th Inst. covering a Check for $1200—and requesting that I would remit you the amount in Virginia Notes one half by the last Mail and one half by this. In compliance with this request I had the Honor to send you by the last Mail (18th Inst) $200 in notes of the B of Virginia that were not cut, and the one half...
Mr Baker called this morng and left the enclosed memo. His intention is to send off his Messenger this Eveng unless Mr Monroe should wish to write in which case he will detain him until tomorrow. I doubt from what he says whether the British vessels now in our Ports will consider themselves as under any obligation to refrain from capturing our vessels after they get to Sea. Mr B intimates that...
In corroboration of what is stated in this Letter, it may not be improper to remark to the President that a Gentleman who was recently in this City from Caracas (Mr Picornell) stated to Mr Thos Brent that Mr Scott was held in some measure as a Prisoner and not permitted to carry on any corresp[ond]ence. This if true, accounts for the circumstance of no Letter having been received from him. I...
The inclosed Paper was put into my hands yesterday by a Friend who called my attention to the Letter from Genl Turreau which it contains. There were parts of this Letter which did not appear new to me. I have examined our files and do not find such a Letter upon them. I have therefore supposed that this is probably a translation of the Letter from Genl Turreau which was returned to him on...
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...
Altho you will doubtless receive from the Secretary of the Navy intelligence of the Glorious victory gained by our Fleet on Lake Erie yet I cannot deny myself the pleasure of sending the inclosed Paper as it affords me an opportunity of offering my Congratulations on an event so honorable to our arms and so important to our future movements in that quarter. I do not write to the Secretary of...
As the inclosed Letters from Mr Adams and Mr Beasley are some what interesting I do myself the Honor to put them under cover to you thinking that it will not be inconvenient to you to forward them to the Secretary of State who is, as I learn by a late Letter from him, yet at his Seat in Virginia. I also forward to you by this Mail a number of English news Papers which were received yesterday...
The inclosed Letters were received this Morning. As they relate to an interesting subject and one that may require immediate attention I have thought it my Duty to forward them to you, without waiting for the return of the Secretary of State. You will of course receive by this Mail from the war office, the official Report of our having got possession of Malden which was abandoned by the Enemy....
Mr Baker called this Morng and left the enclosed Memo. His intention is to send off his Messenger this Eveng unless Mr. Monroe should wish to write in which case he will detain him until tomorrow. I doubt from what he says whether the British Vessels now in our Ports will consider themselves as under any obligation to refrain from capturing our Vessels after they get to Sea. Mr B intimates...
Mr. Monroe left Town this Morning with an intention of spending a few days at his Plantation. Among the Papers which he left with me I found this Morning the enclosed from Mr Onis. I know not whether Mr Monroe was apprised of its contents as I have been out of Town for a few days and only returned yesterday but it appears to me that they may be considered as important I have therefore...
The enclosed was received yesterday under Cover to Mr Monroe with a letter from Mr Pinkney requesting him to forward it to you. as Mr Monroe will not return until tomorrow I have thought that I should right in sending it by the Mail of today. I hope that Mrs Madison has entirely recovered her Health: and that you find the exercise and partial relaxation from Business. which you are permitted...
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...
As the Secretary of State set off yesterday for Loudoun just before the arrival of Mr. Murray with important dispatches from Mr. Shaler, I have had these Dispatches copied and have now the Honor to send you the Copies. The Secty will return on Tuesday so that he will be here in time to receive your Instructions relative to the unpleasant occurrences at algiers. You will also receive by this...
We have letters from Govr. Cass of the 8th. of this Month from which it appears that the British naval officers at Malden have in several instances boarded American vessels passing that place in search of Deserters. These letters are accompanied by Depositions detailing the facts. I should have forwarded these letters to you by this mail but as the Secretary of State will be here today I...
As Mr. Monroe has not yet returned from Loudoun, and may not be here today as it is raining, I have thought that I should do right in sending you the enclosed Copy of a Letter received from Mr. Bagot, since Mr. Monroe left this, as he will doubtless wish to know your opinion upon the subject to which it relates before he answers it. I also send some Papers in Spanish which have been given to...
As the enclosed Letters from Mr Wirt and Mr Mitchell relate to a subject of some delicasy and importance I have deemed it proper to transmit them to you, more particularly as it is doubtful, from the present appearance of the weather, when Mr Monroe will get back from Virginia. The Papers alluded to by Mr Wirt as having been forwarded by Judge Tucker, have I presume been sent directly to you....
Mr Monroe has, I presume, informed you that he had returned into the Country. He was not well when he was here, and as there was little probability of his being able to do any thing immediately with Mr Bagot either in relation to the Fisheries or the Naval Armaments on the Lakes he thought it unnecessary to remain. He had several conversations with Mr Bagot on the latter subject, and thought...
I received the enclosed Letter, from Mr. Monroe this Morning. He directed that it should be shewn to Mr. G. Graham in the War Dept. and then transmitted to you. Mr. Coles left this for Boston this Morning. I have reason to think the Vessel which is to take him to Europe, will not be ready sail when he gets to Boston. I received yesterday from Mr. Gelston the Letter from the Dey of Algiers,...
I send you a Letter from Mr Adams of old date which was received yesterday. Those which it covers are of some interest and I believe you have not seen them before. I have also the pleasure to send a Letter from Mr Russell, and a Memorial from certain Merchants in Phia. relative to their claims on Denmark. Mr Forrest has returned from Baltimore and tells me that we may expect the translation of...
The enclosed Packets addressed to you were handed to me this Morning by Mr. Thomson who has, as they will inform you, a diplomatic appointment from the govt. of Buenos Ayres. He does not intimate any expectation of being received in that Character at present, but he intimates an intention of waiting, here until an answer was received from you. He also said that he was charged with the delivery...
I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 7th. directing me to send a Blank Commission to Mr. Dallas for the Collector at Waldsboroug. We have Blanks with your signature for such Commissions but they want the signature of the Secretary of State. As there is reason to believe that he will be here today I hope it will be in my power to forward on the Commission signed as you direct that it...
Mr. Monroe who returned last Night has seen the enclosed, and directed me to send it to you. I am sorry to say that an unexpected delay has taken place in getting the translation which we had looked for, from Baltimore It seems that the Gentleman who undertook to make it, finds an Arabic Dictionary necessary to the completion of it, and that such a thing is not to be had in Baltimore. We have...
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...
As the Post Rider will go on from your House to Mr. Monroes I take the Liberty of putting the enclosed Packet for him under Cover, to you: and leave it open that you may see Mr Daschkoff’s Official Letter. May I ask the favor of you to send to Mr Monroe the Copies which were sent to you, of the communications from Mr Crowninshield & Judge Story relative to the Fisheries, and which you...
Mr Monroe wrote me from your House on the 20th. that copies of certain Letters in the Dept. were to be sent to you. By some accident however his Letter was delayed so that I did not get it until late the day before yesterday. I now enclose Copies of all these Letters except the official Letter to Mr. Harris, that I hope to be able to send on to you tomorrow. To these Papers I add an Extract...
I now forward a Copy of Mr. Monroe’s Official Letter to Mr Harris. I have been obliged to run it off in haste but I believe it is correct. The other Copies which Mr Monroe directed to be sent to you were forwarded by the Mail of yesterday. You will, I presume, have heared from Mr. Crawford himself, that he had returned to this City. With Affectionate Respect I am Dear Sir Your Mo. Obt. Sert....
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...
Mr Monroe has written to me for certain Papers respecting Mr Kosloffs affair and among others for a Copy of his Letter to Mr Harris. With the exception of this last Paper all the others are sent to him by this Mail. That too will be prepared and sent as soon as practicable but as he is anxious to have it immediately may I take the Liberty to ask the favor of you to send him the Copy which was...
Among the Papers which were recieved from you today is a Letter from Colo. Johnson recommending J C Sharp as Secretary of the Illinois Territory, on which you have put a Memo. asking whether the Office is vacant. So far as we are informed it is not. Mr Pope has given no Notice of his Resignation, or of his intention to resign, but it is stated in some of the Letters recommending a Capt....
Owing to some accident, I did not until this Moment discover the Memo, which you put upon the Cover of one of Mr. Monroe’s Letters to me desiring that his Letter to you which you sent on with it might be returned to you. I hasten to comply with that request and have now the Honor to return the Letter accordingly. The wea ther con tinues to be cool and pleasant and the City healthy. With the...

Also commercial Regulations in India. If the port blockaded be not within the possessions of the B. E. I. Company, a representation on the subject to the B. Govt. will be proper...
Permit me the honor of presenting herewith a small volume entitled " Graham’s Junius " as a token of my great respect for your worth and talents. Should my lucubrations meet with the approbation of, or, give the least pleasure to Mr Madison, it would afford me the highest gratification. Be assured my prayer to God, is, that you and yours may long enjoy health and happiness, without a Sigh, and...
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...
