I recieved yesterday a letter from mr Wickham informing me that Edward Livingston had by letter desired him to issue a writ of Trespass on the case against me in the Federal district court of this state. I inferred from mr Wickham’s letter that he was not engaged for the plaintiff, and in answering his letter therefore, I requested his aid for myself, & further that he would be so good as to...
This letter is for yourself alone. I have recieved a communication thro’ D. Carr for which I sincerely thank you. I am busily engaged in collecting materials from the offices, arranging, E extracting E t c so as to place a very plain case in your hands. when fully possessed of the materials, I shall state the points on which I consider myself justified, submit the matter to my counsel, recieve...

It is sometime since I recieved from mr Tazewell a letter in which he says ‘I presume it will be essential to procure much evidence from N.O. in order to sustain the defence proposed. as those however who may be there employed to prepare this evidence, from the circumstance of their not being accurately acquainted with the points & course of this defence, very probably may commit many errors,...
Mr Dabney Carr has written to you on the situation of the Editor of the Aurora , and our desire to support him. that paper has unquestionably rendered incalculable services to republicanism thro’ all it’s struggles with the federalists, and has been the rallying point for the orthodox of the whole Union. it was our comfort in the gloomiest days, and is still performing the office of a watchful...
In a former letter I promised a list of the books quoted & possessed by me, & of those quoted but not possessed, that these last might be sought for in time, as far as necessary.that list is now inclosed with explanatory notes. such of them as it will be necessary for me to send, shall be sent to Richmond whenever desired. the communications by water between Richmond & Norfolk are so frequent,...
Your favor of the 10 th was recieved yesterday. I should be unwilling that any use should be made of my letter which would shew my interference in the case in question, because I know how gladly the dogs of federalism would turn from Duane upon me and tranquility is now become the summum bonum with me. should Duane push his state-partyism against mr Gallatin to an opposition to the President ,...
