The day of adjournment walks before us like our shadow. It will not take place till the 3d. or 4th. of July. Consequently I shall not be at home till the 10th. or 11th.—Yours of the 19th. inst. came to hand on the 27th. We still go on undoing what in the beginning of the session had been too ardently begun. A bill to authorize the President to lay embargoes, brought into the Senate, has been...
Prince Ruspoli, a Roman Noble proposing in a tour which he is taking to Rockbridge, to pass by Monticello, I take the liberty of addressing him to your attentions. he will probably pass one evening only at Milton or Charlottesville; and, if you could ride with him to Monticello, he would probably be gratified by it, and have his enquiries more satisfactorily answered, than by mr Dinsmore, to...
Our advices from Lynhaven (where we keep a person as a Look-out to inform us daily what passes) down to the 16th. are that two of the vessels of war were out of the capes on a cruise, and two others (two deckers) at anchor in Lynhaven bay. they had been in the habit of landing freely, and of getting water, &, as is believed, fresh provisions from secret customers. some negroes had gone off to...
I recieved by the last post your favor from Doctr. Le Mayeur’s. Your horse also came safe, and the one you desired will be delivered to the post tomorrow morning: but in very bad plight, having been surfieted treading wheat. Zachary sends a saddle and mail [pelon], but says there is neither bridle nor straps.—We are all well. Maria comes down stairs to-day for the first time. The children in...
I inclose you a Mercantile Advertiser for the sake of the extraordinary fabrication in it’s Postscript by an arrival from Cork with London dates to the 9th. of May. the arrival of the Osage in England (which had been detained in France by Armstrong himself) furnishes the occasion of amusing that nation with the forgeries of fact which I have included in an inked line in the margin, within...
Having pressing occasion here for three hundred dollars, which I have not been able to get for an order on Richmond, I must pray you to call on mr Jefferson for that sum on my account, and to bring it to me. as Jamey, the bearer of this, sometimes drinks and might lose his papers, it will be safer for me to send the formal order to mr Jefferson by post, which I now prepare with a letter to...
private I now inclose you the annual report of the Visitors of the University to the Literary board with it’s documents, to be laid before the Legislature. we have had two copies prepared, one for each house, of the ground plan of the establishment. but as these are in a box, not proper for the mail, & the girls expect to set out for Richmond on Saturday, I will send the box by them, and you...
M r Pendleton found me this morning at my mill as he past it, and delivered me your favor of the 31 st explaining at the same time the importance of sending a new bond by tomorrow’s mail. this with the inclosed bond will go with tomorrow’s mail. I am to call on him tomorrow morning to accompany him to the University, and he will return and dine with us, and I have no doubt that what he will...
I am in hopes you are by this time in the regular reciept of Bache’s papers; and in a few days you may expect the Chronicle from Boston, both are to begin Jan. 1. so that your year may end always at a marked period. tho we hear nothing official from our envoys at Paris, yet the rumors are very unfavorable. I begin to fear, not war from them, but that they will refuse to have any settlement...
Casting my eye over a printed copy of the late Report of the Visitors of the University, I discovered that the statement of the Bursar’s account for the first half of the year, from Oct. 1819. to Mar. 1820. inclusive, was wanting, and turning to the papers on file, I found I had omitted it in making up the documents for the report. this first part of the statement had been duly rendered by the...
