Richmond, January 3, 1797. “I have just now seen Mr Wade Mosby of my Neighbourhood in the Country, whose Agent … has just returned from N. York where he has employed you in a Suit to which Mr Mosby is a party. He wishes me to say to you what his Character & circumstances are. I have known him from his Childhood to this day, and can with confidence say he is a man who has supported the...
In mine of sometime in June I promised you, by this date, a more full communication on the subject of State debt redeemed by Virginia from the end of the War with great Britain, to the end of the year 1789. Having made the best inquiry this subject will admit of, I am Satisfied that the following Statement is pretty right, that is to say Redeemed by Taxes, Sales of Land &c 2,613,692 dols....
The absence of the Clerk of our House of Delegates where I believe are lodged the authenticated reports of the debt redeemed from year to year has prevented my complying with your request, in the manner, and so early, as I wished. He is at the Springs for his Health, & no person is authorised to shew his records. He has not yet returned, & having lately learned that his health continues bad, I...
By the last Mail I had the Honor to receive yours of the 29th. Ult. communicating the Presidents offer of the place of Comptroller of the Treasury. Calls to public Office from that source can never be received by me but with immotions of the highest reverence and gratification, dictated as they uniformly are by motives of public good, they constitute the most flattering evidences of merit,...
I have been favored with yours of the 19th. Instant covering your private letter of the same date to Governor Lee. I hear he has left Winchester, & will probably be here tomorrow or next day, and have thought it best to keep his letter until his arrival. The explanations contained in this letter to him, are such as I had anticipated, as you might have perceived from mine to you of the 11th....
I have been favored with yours of the 1st Instant. All accounts from the scene of the late insurrection agree that the measures which have been pursued have been as successful in their issue, as they were wise in their commencement. I have also the satisfaction of finding that our returned Troops pretty generally agree, that a less force than was called forth would have been opposed, and that...
[ Richmond, November 23, 1794. On December 2, 1794, Hamilton wrote to Carrington : “Your letter of the 23rd of November is this moment received.” Letter not found. ]
You have upon sundry occasions done me the favor to request my opinions upon the public Sentiment in Virginia. Conceiving that there can never have been an occurrence giving you greater anxiety than the present Insurgency in the Western parts of Pensylvania, or upon which a knowledge of the public opinions and dispositions here could be more interesting, I anticipate your request, and proceed...
I do not write this letter as congratulatory upon the final issue of the enquiry into the Treasury department, as I never conceived you exposed to receive injury therefrom. I write to express my most sincere wishes that you will not suffer the illiberality with which you have been treated, to deprive the public of your services, at least until the Storm which hangs over us, and is to be...
Yours of the 8th. Instant covering a letter for Mr. Augustine Davis the post Master at this place was recd. two posts ago, and was instantly delivered to himself by my own hands. Yours of the same date directing that the Expences incurred in forwarding your letters of the 26th March & 18th April to sundry Collectors of the Customs in this district, are to constitute charges against the public...
