Your favor of the 3d. came to hand yesterday. in it I recieved the list of warrants issued from your department as I did from the Secy. of the Navy those of his & the war department. none came from the office of state. perhaps mr Madison forgot to direct it, or mr Wagner to execute. a word from you to the latter will probably suffice. I think you expressed a wish to see weekly this...
Your favors of the 7th. 12th. & 14th. inst. came to hand yesterday. consequently that of the 7th. must have slept a week somewhere. mr Davis is now with me. he has not opened himself. when he does I shall inform him that nothing is decided, nor can be till we get together at Washington. I keep all the letters of recommendn of him which you inclosed me, as also Milledge’s letter, & return you...
I take the liberty of putting under the protection of your cover a letter to Cardinal Dugnani at Rome , in the hope that thro’ the Nuncio resident at Paris it may find a sure conveyance to him. in return for this trouble I wish I could give you any news which would interest you. but, withdrawn entirely from all attention to public affairs I neither know nor enquire what Congress are doing. you...
‘It is said to be an ill wind which blows favorably to no one.’ my ill health has long suspended the too frequent troubles I have heretofore given you with my European correspondence. to this is added a stiffening wrist, the effect of age on an antient dislocation, which renders writing slow and painful, and disables me nearly from all correspondence, and may very possibly make this the last...
Your favors of the 16th. & 17th. were recieved the last night. the contents of the latter shall now be distinctly noted. Commrs. of bankruptcy at Poughkeepsie. I have proposed a general arrangement to the Secretary of state which may save the necessity of appointments over the whole face of every state, 99. out of 100. of which would be never called on to act, and would yet give opportunities...
You know my doubts or rather convictions about the unconstitutionality of the act for building piers in the Delaware, and the fears that it will lead to a bottomless expence, & to the greatest abuses. there is however one intention of which the act is susceptible & which will bring it within the constitution; and we ought always to presume that the real intention which is alone consistent with...
The application of the bank of Baltimore is of great importance. the consideration is very weighty that it is held by citizens while the stock of the US. bank is held in so great a proportion by foreigners . were the bank of the US. to swallow up the others & monopolize the whole banking business of the US., which the demands we furnish them with tend strongly to favor, we might, on a...
Your’s of July 24. from New York was recieved on the 31st. this will probably find you at Washington. I immediately wrote to the Secretary of state’s office for a commission for Selman vice Goforth in Symmes’s case, and shall be ready to sign those for Massac, Marblehead & Pensylvania, as also for a successor to Foster, when presented. I suppose, all circumstances considered, that Wheelan’s...
After a long silence I salute you with affection. the weight of 80. years pressing heavily on me, with a wrist & fingers almost without joints, I write as little as possible, because I do it with pain and labor. I retain however still the same affection for my friends, and especially for my antient colleagues, which I ever did, and the same wishes for their happiness. your treaty has been...
