It is ascertained here on unquestionable testimony that Thomas Logwood of Buckingham county in this Commonwealth has been guilty of counterfeiting the notes of several of the branch banks of the United States, particularly those of Boston, Charleston, Savanna and Norfolk. The manner in which this business has been detected is as follows: Information was given to a member of the Council of...
I am greatly obliged to you for the repetition of your kind offer, contained in your Letter from Monticello . Indeed, I am so struck with it, after what has passed between us, as to resolve to give up my Opinion to yours, & to rely entirely on your Friendship. I lament now, that I have lost so much time in deciding on your Proposition; as my Wife’s Situation will scarcely permit me to leave...
Accept my sincere thanks for your repeated acts of kindness towards me, & for the offer you make in your favor of the 10th. instant. As secrecy is required, as yet, I can procure no information respecting the comparative Emoluments, & labor & confinement of the two offices: the moment I can, I will thankfully communicate to you the result of my determination. At present however from what I can...
As it is possible that this may reach you before my other Letter of the 25th. Ulto., I think it proper in Justice to myself, to inform you that I then wrote a few Lines by a Monsr. Le croix, who afforded me the first Opportunity of acknowledging the Receipt of your kind Letter by Col. Le Maire, and of apologizing for a Long seeming Neglect. As I had but a Moment to write then, I promised to...
I received, my dear Jefferson, yours of the 12th. Ultimo after its circuitous Rout through the Post Roads to Richmond, & thence by the Weekly Post-cross-Road to Gloucester Court House, where I suppose it arrived eight days later than it would have arrived had it not reached Richmond after the Gloucester weekly mail had been closed, or sent off. I mention these Circumstances as an Explanation...
I left Wmsburg the first day that the weather & my little Son’s state of health would permit, & had he not relapsed into a dangerous Illness, I should have pushed on alone, to spend if it were only a day with you at Monticello, even though Mr. Harvey informed me that you were on the point of setting out to Washington. My dear little boys illness, which ’till today scarcely gave us any hopes of...
I have to acknowledge the Receipt of your highly flattering & friendly Letter , & to return as I do my best Thanks for it. That you should have proposed to hold me up as worthy of being the Successor of Rittenhouse in the Office of Director of the Mint, is to my Feelings in my present Situation highly gratifying, & to be informed of this in the manner I was, has afforded me much Consolation....
I would have waited on you to congratulate you on your Appointment yesterday had I not been under an Engagement to return Home with Mazzei. I attended at your Lodgings today as soon as our Board adjourned, but you were not at Home. I am unhappily obliged to be at Gloster Court tomorrow, and therefore think it proper, notwithstanding our Intimacy and Friendship, to inform you of this; lest till...
Williamsburgh, 19 Aug. 1778 . Critical discussion of TJ’s “Observations on the late Eclipse” as sent to Rev. James Madison (see Madison to TJ, 26 July 1778 ). “I have annexed the Method used by the famous Short for finding the Effect of Parallax in a Transit of Venus, only applying it here to the Moon.” RC ( DLC ); 5 p. containing 4 rough astronomical diagrams. Text faded beyond legibility at...
On receiving information on sunday last, which was relied on as authentic, that Thomas Logwood , who is convicted of felony in the Court of the United States, would attempt escape from prison and be powerfully aided in this attempt, the Executive thought it proper to order a strong guard that night, giving notice to the Chief Justice and the marshal of the District, that a guard would be...
