The private letter which you was so good as to accompany your Official communication with, calls for and has my warmest acknowledgements.

The enclosed papers contain parts of the information which I expect to furnish upon the subject of Manufactures in Virginia, and are transmitted agreeably to your request.

He also informs me that Colo. Lindsay has appointed him to Act during the vacancy. I...

I have been favored with a packet from you containing several Copies of your letter of the 4th. Instant to the Speaker of the House of Representatives. I had fully anticipated the decided contradictions contained in this letter, to the suggestions which gave rise to it, having seen the Resolutions alluded to. The Copies of the letter are circulated as far as the Numbers would admit, and I...
With very great pleasure I have complied with your request in getting the final proceedings of the House of Representatives inserted in the most public and generally circulating paper of this place, and sent them to Norfolk Petersburg Alexandria & Winchester with a request through my friends at these places, that they be inserted in their papers, which will certainly be done. The votes of Colo...
I am favored with your[s] of the 10th. Instant. Your determination to persevere with patience in your labors to establish a permanent and successful system of Revenue & credit for the United States, must give satisfaction to all who feel that these are the only supports of public safety and private prosperity. I am well assured that, in private life, you experienced pecuniary advantages, and...
I am favored with yours of the 15th June, with a Copy of the Account which accompanied your report, of the same date, to the President.

This you must expect will be the case, until time or events, shall take from your Persecutors...
