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 had the Honor to receive last night your Letter of the 26th. Inst and this Morning I have done what it directed me to do. I took the Liberty in my last, to give an Opinion that it would be right and proper to put the People in possession of the facts connected with our Foreign Relations, for the most dishonorable and unfair means are used to deceive them, on this point; and on the eve of a...
I am requested by Mr Smith to forward to you the inclosed Papers which I have this Moment received from him. He also desires me to say that he accompanies Mrs Smith to Bath, and will be there on Sunday next. The Memoire of Moreau de Lislet is not in this Dept. I wrote to Mr Rodney for it so far back as the 10th June—at the request of Mr Jefferson and as I have not heared from him in reply, I...
As I have been detained in Kentucky longer than I had expected, it becomes proper me, to state to you, that so soon as the time allowed me by the President for the arrangement of my private affairs had expired, I engaged my passage to Orleans in a Boat then loading at Limestone for the Contractor, which I was told would move on more rapidly than any other from that place. By way of shortening...
§ From John Graham. 2 January 1806, New Orleans. “I have just a moment before the departure of the Mail to acknowledge the receipt of your Letters of the 18th & 25th of November addressed to Governor Claiborne. As they are of importance I shall forward them to him by an Express unless I hear in the course of tomorrow that he is on his return. “He may possibly determine to prevent the marquis’s...
§ From John Graham. 8 May 1806, New Orleans. “I have the Honor to inclose you a copy of the Register kept in this office, of the military appointments made by the Governor of the Territory. “It may be proper for me to observe, that no Return has been made to me of the Military appointments among the People of Colour—these appointments were made before the Territorial Government got into...
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...
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....
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...
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...
