I recieved by the last post your letter of the 9 th expressing your desire to study half the day in your own room rather than in the school, if mr Gerardin’s consent should be obtained; & I have consulted your father on the subject. we both find ourselves too much uninformed of the regulations of the school to form a proper judgment on this proposition. if it would break through any rule which...
I ought perhaps sooner to have informed you that mr Crav. Peyton had assigned to me your note for 201.49 D to which is to be added the rent of the last year . the present is merely to give this information, as I shall set off tomorrow for Bedford & be absent some weeks. having some heavy paiments to make at our March & April courts any aid towards these would be acceptable, without meaning...
Your favors of Mar. 9. and 23. are both safely recieved and I shall with pleasure write to the President on the subject of the last. this I do merely because it is your wish, being satisfied the President can need no excitement in your favor beyond his own knolege & approbation of the uniform line of your conduct. We are here in a state of close blockade, tantalized indeed with propositions of...
Your favor of Jan. 19. is recieved, and with it a copy of the 2 d edition of your Naval history, for which be pleased to accept my thanks.

Richmond is the present deposit of our public records, which however sustained great losses by wanton destruction...

Your favor of 24 th Feb. was recieved a few days ago. soon after the date of mine to you of Jan. 3. your’s of the 1 st of that month came to hand, as also the volume forwarded with it: for which be pleased to accept the renewal of my thanks, and the confirmation of the favorable expectations I had formed of it’s contents. Every appearance warrants the expectation that the scenes in which you...
Your carriage arrived here last night only, having been detained some days at Edgehill by the late rains & consequent rise of the river. all the donations which you have been so kind as to charge on it have arrived in perfect order; and being to set out tomorrow for Bedford , this day will be employed in setting out the plants. by the return of the carriage I shall send you three or four...
Your favor of Oct. 1. came duly to hand, and in it the Memorial which I now return. I like well your idea of issuing treasury notes bearing interest, because I am persuaded they would soon be withdrawn from the circulation and locked up in vaults & private hoards. it would put it in the power of every man to lend his 100. or 1000.D. tho’ not able to go forward on the great scale and be the...
