Before I left Philadelphia you will recollect that I engaged to give some Information respecting the Issue of the late Election in Connecticut, and the State of the public mind in New England. The period has now arrived when I can speak with more confidence and with more accuracy, than I had even expected. Our Legislature closed it’s Session last friday. when our Votes for Candidates for...
I recieved with great pleasure your favor of June 4. and am much comforted by the appearance of a change of opinion in your state: for tho’ we may obtain, & I believe shall obtain a majority in the legislature of the US attached to the preservation of the Federal constitution according to it’s obvious principles & those on which it was known to be recieved, attached equally to the preservation...
I embrace the opportunity presented by Mr. Erwing with great Satisfaction. The receipt of your Letter inclosing one to Uriah McGregory gave me much pleasure—The Letter to Gregory I yet hold. I have not been able to satisfy myself respecting his Character. In the present state of things it appeared to me most prudent to retain the Letter untill I could be satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt of...
Inclosed I have both the Honor and Pleasure to transmit the Address of a Number of Gentlemen. It originated not merely from fashion, but from those high transports of Joy produced by the preservation of Our happy Constitution, the probable restoration of social harmony, and the guaranty of personal Liberty—It speaks in plain language the just confidence and feelings of it’s Authors— It it with...
I have long been indebted to you a letter; but it has been because you desired me to write by mr Ervin the bearer of yours who is not yet gone back. but in the mean time I trust that the post is become a safe channel to and from [me]. I have heard indeed of some extraordinary licenses practised in the post offices of your state, & there is nothing I desire so much as information of facts on...
Yours of the 29th. ult. has been received. While I feel delighted with the high confidence you have been pleased to repose in me, its charms cannot lead me to forget that the interests of our Country may suffer through my defect of judgment or ignorance of characters. I can give but one assurance; my intentions will be right. The firm support of the true principles of the Constitution and...
I wrote you on the 29th. of March. yours of the 25th of that month with the address it covered had not reached this place on the 1st. of April when I set out on a short visit to my residence in Virginia where some arrangements were necessary previous to my settlement here. in fact your letter came to me at Monticello only the 24th. of April, two days before my departure from thence. this I...
Yours of the 3d. of this Month has been recd. with great pleasure—The answer to our address, has been presented to the Chairman , & by him been communicated to most of the principal People in this place.—It is peculiarly pleasing to the Citizens of this Town, who first aided by Some in whom they reposed confidence ventured to oppose the aristocracy of Connecticut, to be Noticed by the...
When I ventured to express an opinion respecting Offices & Officers I forebore remarking anything relative to the time & manner of removals; unwilling to appear forward and assuming. I have lately seen in the hands of Mr Lincoln a Letter on that Subject under the Signature of most of the leading Republicans here. As I have ever held an opinion different from that of my Bretheren I am...
I propose within about ten days to seek, for the months of August & September, a climate more congenial than that of the tide waters. I do myself therefore the previous pleasure of acknoleging [the] reciept of your favor of the 6th. & to thank you for it’s information & to hope you will continue it. my own opinion accords entirely with yours. the first removal in Connecticut will be justified...
