It is from a sense of duty that I furnish you, in confidence, with some information, which this day casually fell into my way. It cannot be considered as a matter of deep importance, but it is sufficiently so to warrant me in troubling you with a statement. I had in my hands two manuscript books, handsomely bound in red leather, said to be copies N. 3 & 4, of a statistical account of the...
I had the honor to furnish you lately with some Abstracts (in my hand writing) from a paper mentioned in my unsigned letter; and since I sent you a cover with the name (in my hand writing) of the person who wrote the paper. It was my intention to follow the two with such a letter as this; that you might know on my responsibility the existence of such a paper, and the name of the writer. I have...
I take the liberty to inclose you a letter for the President which I request the favor of you to deliver or forward with such addition, if any, as you may judge proper. I have written to Mr. Gallatin at NewYork, by the mail of this day. It was at a period very remote from this, that I had first the pleasure to become acquainted with you, and I trust you have found me ever since in the ranks of...
The great importance of the present crisis occasions me earnestly to wish for a copy of the report on our external relations, which is understood to have been recently communicated, as soon any spare ones may be recd. from the press, and be permitted to circulate among our citizens.

The present condition of the world certainly demands all the consideration of every wise and good man, which his situation permits or requires him to bestow upon a temporal subject. The war, which in various forms and upon several grounds, has been carried on between France and her adversaries, has reached a degree of seriousness, which ensures consequences of the most extensive effects and...
Dear Sir Very pressing business of the Army & indian department, with some other circumstances & the impossibility of accomplishing, in a short time, conversations with others sufficiently casual in appearance have prevented my thinking as closely and seriously upon the subject of the treaty, as I earnestly desired, when your wishes and the public interests called me to the duty. I have...
To James Madison, Esquire, Secretary of State the memorial & petition of Tench Coxe, a citizen of Philadelphia in the State of Pennsylvania. Your Memorialist respectfully represents that he has been frequently and seriously impressed with the manifest inconveniencies & disadvantages constantly arising to the people of the United States from the practice & necessity of bottling, corking, wiring...
This letter goes to you as a citizen. I have no copy of it, or the paper it encloses. If that paper seems to you (as a citizen, who loves his country and has a goodwill for the writer) likely to do good, it may take any course, altered or unaltered, as may seem best. My information is imperfect, my views of course limited, & liable to be incorrect, and I may feel too much. Our Country does not...
