I received your note enclosing one of Capt. Truxtun’s. We this day argued the case of Burr before Marshall C.J. who will give an opinion tomorrow. Burr spoke a few minutes after his Counsel had done, & in my humble opinion much to his disadvantage. My impression is, that he will be held to bail for treason, from what fell from the C. justice, immediately after I had closed the argument. I may...
On my return home, after an absence of many months, I am naturally led to enquire, after the health & happiness, of those, who are the constant objects of my respect regard & solicitude. Among the first in my affections, is the sincere & uniform friend of my youth to whom I have always been personally & politically attached. The people, of S. America whom I have lately visited, resemble in...
The mail of saturday brought me judge Johnson’s apology for his opinion which you were so good as to inclose me. This morning I received your favor of the 28th. inst: containing the letters from Mr. Bibb. The fee charged is much more than we expected. When I was last at Washington we made an estimate of the debts due from the fund so far as we could ascertain them. In this we calculated Mr....
The importance of the questions submitted to my consideration in your letter of the 26. of August, has induced me to keep them a considerable time under advisement, to revolve the subjects they embrace much in my own mind, to review the opinion I originally entertained, & to recur to the authorities applicable to the case— After a very attentive research into the books & mature deliberation I...
I must beg you to accept the copy of my friend Brackenridge’s “ Voyage to S. America ,” herewith transmitted, as a small token of my undiminished attachment to your person, and my unfeigned veneration for your character. I have only to regret that it is not bound in a style more worthy of being presented to the author of the first Declaration of American Independence. But having waited...
The intelligence contained in the enclosed, is at this crisis, so interesting & important, that I transmit it to you by the return of the same mail which brought it on, lest by some accident the official dispatches may not have yet reached you. I will thank you to return it when you have done with it, as part of it, relates to a fine little boy of mine who is afflicted with the most...
Previous to my receiving your note of the 22d. inst: Mr. Madison had sent me a lenthy statement of facts relative to the batture in front of the suburb St. Mary at New Orleans, or alluvial lands to which you refer. In this statement Messrs. Derbigny & Lisly French lawyers of reputation & Mr. Gurley Attorney General of the New Orleans territory, have, I understand, given decided opinions in...
The Circuit Court of the United States for this District sat yesterday at New Castle, or rather ought to have met there, but judge Chase, did not attend, nor was the cause of his non-attendance known. At the term before he did not attend, because he was preparing for his trial. At neither term however was there any business for him to do, notwithstanding all the noise & clamour on the subject...
The enclosed letter from my father comes down as late as the 26th. ulto. Government are perhaps in possession of official information to the same period, or indeed to a later; for I think I have seen in the newspapers a statement that our affairs were for the present amicably adjusted. The letter serves to shew, that the genuine American spirit animates the people of that new country, & must...
I have lately recovered from a severe attack of fever, which confined me to my bed for ten days; & I propose to visit Philad a , tomorrow, where I shall see my old friend S. Gerard, & procure from him some of the genuine Maldonado Pamphis seed, for yourself. I prefer his, because he has taken more pains in the cultivation of this fine vegetable, & has kept it far separated from any other of...
