Mr. Jefferson has the honor of presenting his compliments to Mr. Hammond, of expressing his regrets that he happened to be from home when Mr. Hammond did him the honor of calling on him, and was equally unlucky in not finding him at home when he waited on him on Monday. Being informed by Mr. Bond that Mr. Hammond is charged with a public mission to the government of the United States, relative...
Mr. Hammond presents his most respectful Compliments to Mr. Jefferson, and begs leave to assure him that he has felt equal regret with him at the circumstances, which have hitherto prevented their meeting.

I have the honor of acknowledging the receipt of your letter of yesterday. With respect to the non-execution of the seventh article, of the definitive treaty of peace between his Britannic Majesty and the United States of America, which you have recalled to my attention, it is scarcely necessary for me to remark to you, Sir, that the King my master was induced to suspend the execution of that...
Your favor of Nov. 30. remains still unanswered because the clerks are employed in copying some documents on the subject of the treaty of peace which I wish to exhibit to you with the answer. In the meantime, as to that part of your letter which respects matters of commerce, the fear of misunderstanding it induces me to mention my sense of it and to ask if it be right. Where you are pleased to...
As I am extremely solicitous to avoid any misapprehension of my letter of the 30th ulto., I have now the honor of stating to you, in explanation of that part of it, to which you have adverted in yours of yesterday, that, although (as I formerly mentioned, in my first conversations with you, after my arrival in this country) I am not as yet empowered to conclude any definitive arrangement, with...
I take the liberty of inclosing you an extract of a letter from a respectable character, giving information of a Mr. Bowles lately come from England into the Creek country, endeavouring to excite that nation of Indians to war against the United States and pretending to be employed by the government of England. We have other testimony of these his pretensions and that he carries them much...

That the said Bowles was actually to sail four days...
