I return you all the papers recieved from you by yesterday’s mail, except mr Burnley’s, which I shall send to the Secretary at war. altho’ all the appointments below field-officers are made, it is possible some may decline & open a way for new competition. I have observed that Turreau’s letters have for some time past changed their style unfavorably. I believe this is the first occasion he has...
Yours by yesterday’s mail is recieved & I now return Pinckney’s & Graham’s letters. I thought it best to forward the passport for Hill’s vessel to mr Graham direct lest it should lose a post by going in to Montpelier. with mr Grymes’s request of a vessel I can do nothing till further advised. the application is new, and I think unnecessary, as I presume the trade to N.O. is sufficiently open...
I retain mr Wilson’s letter, and return you his two certificates, as he may wish to keep them. If I ever heard his name before it has entirely escaped me. I do not believe he has been misrepresented to me, & doubt if he has been represented in any way. DNA : RG 59—LAR—Letters of Application and Recommendation.
Robert H. Jones of N. Carolina to be District attorney for N. Carolina. he resides at Warrenton. ViU .
The passport for the Leonidas goes by this post to the Collector of Norfolk. I return you Jarvis’s, Hackley’s & Montgomery’s letters, and send you Hull’s, Hunt’s, Clarke’s & Mr Short’s for perusal & to be returned. on this last the following questions arise. When exactly shall the next vessel go? whence? is not the secrecy of the mission essential? is it not the very ground of sending it while...
Yours of the 3d. is recieved. I also have recieved a letter from B. R. Randolph. who he is I know not. he may be of a family of Randalls of the neighborhood of Petersburg, who have lately begun to spell their names Randolph , tho’ totally unconnected with those of that name. one of them was not long since convicted of the murder of his father, and the family is generally in very ill...
Yours of the 7th. was recieved yesterday, but the post was so late, and arriving with his portmanteau open threw me into great alarm, as I expected a large sum of money in the mail. I was relieved by finding it safe. I return you Pinckney’s Joy’s, Claiborne’s, Foronda’s and Bailey’s letters. would it not be worth while to send Erskine a copy of Bailey’s letter, to observe to him that this...
Your’s of the 10th. came to hand yesterday & I return you Foronda’s, Tufts, Soderstrom’s & Turreau’s letters. I think it is become necessary to let Turreau understand explicitly that the vessels we permit foreign ministers to send away are merely transports for the conveyance of such of their subjects as were here at the time of the embargo, that the numbers must be proportioned to the vessels...
Yours of the 14th. is recieved and I now return the papers which accompanied it. I must cry peccavi as to the answer to Sullivan’s letter. I found it in the letter itself. I now inclose you two letters from mr Short. I fancy he is right in supposing that by the time he could arrive at the Baltic, it’s navigation would be uncertain, if not impracticable; but certainly it would be closed before...
The government of the US. will not make itself an accomplice in the crimes of invading a foreign nation which never did it a wrong, in the abduction of their people and selling them in slavery. PPAmP .
