I take the liberty of applying to you as a Candidate of Professor of langauges in that institution.

The Undersigned Citizens of the County of Randolph in the Indiana Territory Respectfully approach the first Magistrate of their Country—and beg leave to recommend to his patronage Elijah Backus Esquire to fill the place of Thomas T Davis deceased—This Appointment is highly interesting to your petitioners—Not only as it relates to the necessity of having an able and enlightened Judge—but that...
My absence from home until this moment prevented my sending an answer to your note before. Young Coopers name is Thomas Cooper ,—he appears to be about 22 years old.

It is singular enough that I should have before me at the moment, a history of England in 4to, which I take to be the same which you mention. Several years ago you mentioned the same book to me, and through M r G. Erving then in London I obtained the book before me. Having just completed my Military Dictionary...
I think it my duty to enclose the letter herewith sent. I have cut the name of the person and his place of residence out, only in obedience to an injunction made to me repeatedly not to let his name be known as my correspondent. He is a man of unquestionable integrity, and is sufficently wealthy to be above all temptations to forfeit his character for worldly motives; he has sent collections...

A desire to be preserved in your remembrance has often led me to the verge of writing to you, but knowing with what anxiety you retired from political concerns and the disgust you must naturally have felt at the recollection of the baseness you have seen and the unworthiness which prevails too much in all kinds of affairs, I preferred rather to trust to the ordinary incidents of my situation...
I should not have troubled your retirement upon political subjects had not there been a rumor for some days that you had consented to accept the station of Sec y of State in the present Crisis, and that Mr. Monroe was to assume the War Department ; I must confess I feared it was too good news to be true, but I cannot refrain from expressing a wish that if you could consistently with your...
The following is a copy of an anonymous communication made to me, which has since produced a correspondence with the writer, and a disclosure of the Cypher, therein alluded to, a copy of which I also subjoin. Copy “Mr. Duane In addition to the facts stated in your paper of this morning, you may add the following if you think proper. That in the month of July last, a confidential friend of...
