I return you the letter you were so good as to inclose me with thanks for the communication. the real occurrences at Natchitoches & the Sabine had, as usual, swelled greatly on their way to Natches. the 500. horse were really but 20. who retired without opposition on Capt Turner’s requisition. the official reports of Majr. Porter & Capt Turner assure us of these facts. Some unexpected...
I cannot but express the sincere satisfaction, I feel on the appointment of an old Revolutionary officer, to a post which will render him comfortable. Genl. Shee is entitled to great credit for the purity & uniformity of his principles & conduct. He withstood persecution in the Federal reign of terror in 98’ & resisted temptation in the unfortunate struggle of 1805. in this state. From the...
I enclose you a Petition in a case in which I must solicit the incursion of your clemency. The act of congress, giving authority to the Secretary of the Treasury in certain cases to mitigate or remit fines & forfeitures does not extend I consider to this case. The act applies I conceive only, where there was no intention to elude the payment of duties, which would not with truth & justice be...
Your favor of the 3d. is recieved on the subject of a pardon to the Poulsons & Shad. it has been an invariable rule with me never to pardon but on the recommendation of the judges who sat on the trial or of one of them & the Attorney of the district. from this I have never departed in a single instance; and were it to be departed from, it would let loose the power of pardon to be exercised...
Your obliging favor of the 12 uto. I duly received, covering the Petition I had enclosed to you. I have taken the earliest opportunity to obtain the signatures of judge Bedford & our District Attorney Mr. Read, who readily signed the recommendation. I now enclose you the Petition in order that a pardon may be obtained. Just as I was leaving New Castle yesterday morning a large French frigate...
I returned you some time since the papers you sent to me in order to get the recommendation of the District judge & Attorney which I obtained. But I directed my letter to Washington, & I see by the papers that the Secy at War is on a visit to you at Monticello. The rule you have adopted, I think an excellent one in such cases, & as I have been enabled to conform to it, I anticipate your...
I am induced by the present situation of affairs with Spain, to enclose you two letters received by this days mail from my father. I presume, no doubt, you have received official intelligence on the subject to which they relate, but I wish to throw in my mite, at so interesting a period. If they are serious in re-occupying their former positions, it must be connected with some hostile plan of...
Th: Jefferson presents his friendly salutations to mr Rodney. he found on his arrival here yesterday his two letters of Sep. 21. & 24. and doubts not mr Rodney has recieved the pardon from the office of State. he returns him the 2. letters of judge Rodney as requested & thanks him for the communication of them. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
I received your favor of the 5th inst. enclosing my fathers letters, but have not yet received the pardon from the Sec.T of States office. It will no doubt be transmitted as soon as more pressing business will allow. I have since received another letter from my father dated 9th of Sept. on which day Major King, who had accompanied Govr. Claibourne to Nachitoches, dined with him & gave him the...
I recd. your favor enclosing Mr. Pleasonton’s note. Mr. Read informed me, when at New Castle, that he had received the pardon. He had also made an arrangement, just before I got to New Castle, for continuing the trials I mentioned in my last, until the next term of the Supreme Court for Sussex County. All the important questions which the subject of those trials involves will be discussed on...
