Give me leave to congratulate you most heartily on the smiling Aspect our Affairs begin to put on. Yesterday Congress received Despatches from Mr. Bingham, their Agent, in Martinico, which confirm the Accounts of the Defeat of the British Fleet in the West-Indies. The Action was extremely severe; and if Byron , like Sir Henry Clinton , had not taken the Advantage of the Moon , it is more than...
The Committee to whom were referred the proceedings of the Society of the Cincinnati, at their last General Meeting, beg leave to report: that they have attentively considered the alterations proposed at that meeting to be made in the original Constitution of the Society; and though they highly approve the motives which dictated those alterations, they are of opinion it would be inexpedient to...

I arrived here on Friday night. I can do no business with the court of errors so anxious is the Legislature to adjourn. It is generally thought that the appointmen⟨t⟩ of Senators will be completed tomorrow or next day at farthest after which nothing will keep the members together except some Indian business which has just turned up. When our friends met it seems they judged it most prudent to...
About an hour ago the election of Senator was brought on in the assembly. Burr succeeded by a decided majority. He has a decided Majority also in the Senate. The thing therefore may be considered as settled. The twistings, combinations, and maneuvers to accomplish this object are incredible. I was this moment attending a court of Chancery. The Chancellor is singularly happy. It would take a...

Your bill for 200 dollars was presented to me about half an hour ago & I paid it upon being presented. You need make no arrangements for the repayment of this money. I shall as soon as I can rid myself of a little business which now presses me write you concerning the state of our accounts. I entreat you at all times without the least hesitation to make use of me as you please. It is amongst...
Ever since the recipt of your last letter I have been kept in such a state of distraction that I have not been able to compose my mind sufficiently to write to you. Courts have been sitting day after day & it so happens that I have had business in all of them, but, as was the case with you, instead of being simple it is of the most perplexing kind. I now am forced to write to you by an event...

I have just recd. yours enclosing a note for discount. I have endorsed it & enclosed it to Mr. Seton. It is dated the 20th Augt. inst & will be discounted on Tuesday. I am this moment setting off for the Dutchess Circuit & have not time to be particular although I much wish it. I have as you have learnt taken a very active part abt the wicked & abominable decision of the canvassers. I think &...
We are all alive here. Perhaps this day will be distinguished by the most respectable meeting for numbers—character—& property—ever assembled in this City. The object is to express our warm approbation of the proclamation of neutrality & our determination to support peace. We have by pursuing a bold & manly line of conduct effected a complete consolidation of parties in favor of the great...
Frances I find is persisting in his persecution of you and As he has thought proper to complain to Congress, the business has acquired a degree of importance which perhaps is not unworthy of your attention. Under the influence of this idea I applied yesterday to Dunscomb to give me a memorandum of what he had some time ago told me had passed between you & him with relation to some matter in...
I have just this moment recived yours of the 23rd. inst. All I know of the bond & mortgage I have is that General Schuyler left them with me for you & as your property. They are executed to him by a Mr. Coenradt Burghdurf of York Town in West Chester County. I am wholly unacquainted with the man—but I have this moment written a letter to him informing him that payment of the final instalment...
Mr. Burghdurf has paid me on acct. of your bond & mortgage 562 ²⁰⁄₁₀₀ Doll and this sum is lodged in the Bank of New York to your credit & may be drawn for whenever you think proper. I have lately recd. a bill of exchange for £100 which I am to sell & pay you the proceeds of on account of Mr. Williamson. Col Walker has paid the same sum to Mr. Harison but I believe he has not paid you. This...
I have reced. your favor respecting the special authority necessary to be given to those who represent the original holders of Bank Shares in the choice of Directors and have done as you requested. The speculations in those shares have been prodigious & much money has been made & lost by them. The fluctuations in their value have excited alarm in the minds of the well wishers to public credit...
Things here are in a calamitous state. My heart is nearly broken with the distresses of our friend Duer. Read the enclosed & judge what my feelings must be from your own. Great pains have been taken to excite the public rage agt. him & his friends. Among others I have been marked out as an object of resentment—for being one of his Lawyers. It is true I am so—but I have done nothing but what a...
