I have an opportunity by Mr. Bethu ne, who leaves Town Tomorrow, for Falmouth, to e mbark for the United States in the British Pack et; and I cannot omit to take Advantage of it , although I have still nothing conclusive to co mmunicate. The Hope arrived off Falmouth, and land ed Mr. Atwater, on the 16th. of last Month; she immediately proceeded on her Voyage to Franc e with a fair Wind. Mr....
I am not able to judge whether my Reply to Mr. Canning’s Letter (enclosed in my public Dispatch) will be approved by the President. I need not say that I hope it will. At any Rate it can do no Harm, as it is simply my act. What will be its Reception here I know not. If ill received, as perhaps it may be although perfectly polite, it can affect only myself. This last Reflection suggests...
The enclosed sent to Mr. Pinkney by a Mr. Stephen Kingston. DNA : RG 59--DD-Diplomatic Despatches, Great Britain.
We had the honor to receive on the 27th. of last month your letter of the 18th. of March, to which the detailed explanations contained in our letters of the 22d. & 25th. ulto. render any particular reply unnecessary. We transmit enclosed a statement of the American prize causes for hearing in the high court of Appeals. That which was forwarded by Mr. Purviance was very hastily prepared by...
I have had the Honour to receive, by the British Packet, your Letter of the 9th. & 10th. of last Month. The Assurance, contained in the first of these Letters, of the President’s Approbation of the Manner in which my late Instructions were executed, affords me the most lively Satisfaction; and I beg you to accept my sincere Thanks for the kind and flattering Terms in which you have been so...
I had a long Interview this Morning with Mr. Canning; which has given me Hopes that the object repeal of Orders mentioned in your Letter of the 30th. of April, (a Duplicate by the Packet, for the St. Michael has not yet arrived) may be accomplished, if I should authorize the Expectation repeal of Embargo which the same Letter suggests. Some Days must elapse, however, before I can speak with...
I have the Honour to transmit enclos ed a Copy of my Reply to Mr. Canning’s Letter t o me of the 23d. of last Month, accompanying his official Answer, of the same Date, to my Note of the 23d. of August. I have the Honour to be, with the highest Consideration, Sir your most Obedient Humble Servant. DNA : RG 59--DD-Diplomatic Despatches, Great Britain.
The Committee of Merchants trading to the U. S. have just made an ineffectual attempt to obtain such a Change in the late Orders of Council as should exempt the whole of our Native Commodities from British Duty upon their going on to the Continent. They are said to have required also that American Vessels should be allowed, after touching here in Consequence of being warned under the orders,...
I have the Honor to inform you, that on the 15th. of August, a few Days previous to my leaving England, I had the Satisfaction to bring to a Conclusion the Affair of the Maryland Bank Stock. The Transfers of the Stocks, & payment of the Cash, (with the Exception of the £10.000 Bank Stock given to Mr. Harford, as heretofore explained,) were made to me on that Day by the Solicitor of the...
I have delayed writing to you on the Affair of the Maryland Claim in the constant Hope that I shd. soon have it in my power to announce the Transfer of the Stock, which forms the Subject of it, to the Use of the State. Not having yet been able, however, from unforeseen Impediments to procure this Transfer (altho it may be expected very shortly to take place) I ought not perhaps any longer to...
