A few days before leaving Paris I had the honour to receive your letter. Since that I have passed through London on my way to this place. The cause of my coming has been communicated to you some time ago, and I have nothing to say on that subject. Learning that a vessel is about to sail from Amsterdam for New-York in a few days, I profit of that occasion to send you a little of the reigning...
I receivd your favor, my dear Sir, by which I percieve you are once more a farmer at Braintree—a real Cincinnatus without being of that noble Body which resembles him in name alone. I am inclined to believe that you also will be calld from your plough to fill the place of Vice President under the new Constitution. Virginia, I think will return Genl. Washington and yourself. If the four New...
I am much obliged to you, for your kind Congratulations on my Arrival, and Mrs Adams returns you her Compliments and Thanks. The Accession of Virginia, to the New Constitution is a great event.—You and I Should not materially differ, I fancy, if We were to compare Notes of a perfect Commonwealth. But I consider the present Project, as a commencement of a national Government, to be a valuable...
Give me leave to congratulate you on your happy arrival in your native Country; & on the respectable reception that has attended it. I beg the favor of you to present my congratulations on the same account to Mrs. Adams. Thou I am not an Admirer of the new Constitution, yet as you approve of it & as a great many wise and good men expect much honor & advantage to our Country from the adoption...
I enclose you the long expected production of the Convention. I am inclined to think you will deem it somewhat too Aristocratic. An Oligarchy however I think will spring from it in the powers of the President & Vice President, who, if they understand one another, will easily govern the two Houses to their will. The omission of a Declaration of rights—the appointment of a vice President, whose...
We are favor’d with your Letter of the 8th of May last, transmitting Protests for Non Acceptance of the two Bills of Exchange for 75,000 Florin’s; drawn by Constable Rucker and Co. of New York by on their Partner Mr. John Rucker of London—From the Solidity of the House by whom the Bill was drawn (being a Partnership with Mr. Robert Morris of Phila.) we had not the most distant apprehension of...
I received, my dear Sir, your Republics, & am much honord with the office you asign me. I had before read them & nothing material occurrd to me as amendments. The title is the only thing exceptionable, because it applys to that particular part only which respects M. Furgot. But the work will undoubtedly be of very great service, in directing the consideration of our Countrymen to the defects...
In your Letter of the 19 th May last, you were pleased to inform us that you had already accepted Bills which had been drawn on you to a considerable amount by M r. Barclay and Lamb, in consequence of the appropriation which had been made by Congress for forming Treaties with the Barbary Powers; but as we have no advice from you since that date we are at a loss to know whether the whole or...
My Nephew Tho s. Lee Shippen wishes to be recommended to your patronage; & I am satisfyd he cannot be under better protection. I therefore entreat you to let him find favor in your sight, & that you will have the goodness to assist him with your advice, in the conduct of his legal Studies which he purposes to finish at the Temple. Our finances are unhappily at as low an ebb, as they who think...
