Since mine of the 4th. Instant, covering some information upon Manufactures, I have received an additional report from General Stevens, Inspector of Survey No. 2, which, together with his letter, and a Copy of one he received from one of his Collectors I now do myself the pleasure to enclose. It was my intention, at first, to have obtained the Reports of all the Inspectors, and then have made...
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,...
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...
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...
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. It is true that suggestions such as you have heard have been thrown out here, and, according to the disposition of the hearers, have been credited and discredited. This you must expect will be the case, until time or events, shall take from your Persecutors...
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...
By last post I received an Answer from Colo. Newton to my enquiries concerning a successor to Mr. Wells at Smithfield. He says that Mr. Copeland Parker is under the Character of an industrious attentive Man, and he thinks as proper a person for the Offices of Inspector & Surveyor as any to be engaged there. He also informs me that Colo. Lindsay has appointed him to Act during the vacancy. I...
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...
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. These papers have come from the two lower Surveys of the District; the information they contain as to the particular Neighbourhoods from which they are drawn, may be applied, with propriety to the whole of those Surveys:...
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....
