Permitt me to call to your recollection, that about three years past, you obliged me exceedingly by a letter you wrote to the Havanna, upon the subject of a very large sum of money attached there, my own property; Your letter I have good reason to believe had at the time its due effect, & about 12 or 14 months thereafter a Judgement was obtained to my satisfaction, but my opponents (the...
I had the honor to address you yesterday at the request of our esteemed friend Mr P. Carr , in which was enclosed a letter for his Bro. informing of the alarming indisposition of P.C. & requesting his Bro. S.C. to visit Baltimore, all which I now confirm; & sorry indeed am I to add, that in my opinion, appearances are still more unfavourable to a speedy recovery. The Doctors, Brown &...

Yesterday brought me your acceptable favor of the 12th, soon after its receipt The Revd. Mr. Glendy called upon me & to whom I handed the same; I confess it woud have given me much pleasure to have accompanied him to Washington, but from the contents of your letter I delay for the present that Journey, altho’ I regret the satisfaction & pleasure which I loose by not being with you tomorrow...
Do you forget promises, or do I recollect what never happened? I think you were to send me a package (of whatever size they are from 1. to 200 ℔) of Moka coffee, and a box of Florence wine as a sample with permission to ask for more if I found it good. if this was not so, I will pray you now to send me those articles by any vessel coming to this place or it’s vicinity. I left your friends in...
You do not forget promises, but I omitted to do what I am now about to say; & for which I beg your forgiveness. Soon after my return from Washington, Mrs. H left Baltimore, & she having under her own immediate care the Florence wine, I was at a loss to get at the quantity on hand, & she now tells me there are not more than two boxes, & perhaps only one, which shall be sent by the first vessel...

Your esteemed respects of the 10th: I have just received; when I conversed with you on the subject of the wine, it was under an impression in my own mind, that my commercial house had imported some for sale, at the time I received some from Leghorn, but found myself mistaken— The box is actually gone, & I expect is now on its passage, as is also a bag of Bourbon coffee, particulars as at foot;...

D. to Leghorn? & through what channel? Accept my salutations of friendship & respect. MHi : Coolidge Collection.

Having found the receipt for the articles sent, I have thot it best to forward it to you, altho’ I am informed the vessel is arrived, & no doubt they are safely delivered— The English news papers appear very anxious that this Country & France, shd. be in actual war—no doubt the French, breath the same language between America & England—but it is to be hoped, neither will be gratified.— Yrs....

I have duly recieved your favor of Dec. 29. and have certainly every disposition to do for your friend what would be gratifying to you, as far as consistent with the laws which I have laid down for my own conduct. but I have made it an invariable rule never to intermeddle with the appointments of the governors. from my own difficulties in the exercise of that duty, I know what theirs are &...

I recieved last night your friendly letter of the 21st. being determined that no act of mine, which may be avoided, shall give countenance for clamour to the enemies of the government, or trouble to it’s friends for justification, the sentence on the cotton seed is irrevocable. in answer to your enquiries I will observe that it is usually planted in May, and that the seed being very full of...

Your favor of Apr. 17. came duly to hand. nobody has regretted more sincerely than myself, the incidents which have happened at Washington . the early intimations, which I saw quoted from federal papers, were disregarded by me, because falshood is their element. the first confirmation was from the National Intelligencer, soon followed by the exultations of other papers whose havoc is on the...
