I inclose herewith the only printed addition which has been made to the sheets of the Journal forwarded by Mr. Hopkins. The bill imposing duties on imports having been published in all the Newspapers as it finally passed both houses I do not inclose it. The bill imposing duties on tonnage has since become a law in the hands of the President, but is not yet in print. The clauses discriminating...
My last inclosed a continuation of the printed Journals of the H. of Reps. I now add two sheets more. They are no otherwise valuable than as they serve to make up an entire sett. The commercial bills are at lengths off our hands. They have been so long delayed that an interregnum of a day or two will take place even in this & the adjacent ports, and an inconvenient one in the distant ports....
I was charged by Mr. Charles Pinckney of South Carolina, with a message to you that entirely escaped my memory when I had the pleasure of seeing you; he begs that you will write to Colo. W. Hampton, and urge him to exert himself to secure the vote of S. Carolina to Mr. Jefferson, (if they vote for Genl. Pinckney, they had as well not vote for Mr. Jefferson). Mr. Pinckney so frequently...
Every man who loves his country must feel great uneasiness at the defects that have been discovered in our constitution, in the short time that it has been in operation and must doubt its permenence when he recollects that in the 12th. year of its age, it was in the agony of death, that it was on the point of expiring under its own forms—that a similar state of things may be produced at any...
The President once mentioned to me that he expected he shou’d find it necessary to remove the Post master Genl. from his office; at that time he spoke of a respectable gent. who he had thought of for that place, this conversation took place early in the winter, I do not know what his determination, may now be, if it shou’d be to make a change in that department, and he wou’d confide it to me I...
I beg leave to introduce to you Mr. Joseph Daviess the district attorney for Kentuckey, he is a man of merit, and one who has the strongest claims upon me for all the good offices that I can do him, from the extraordinary attention that he has paid to the interest of My brothers family, there is nothing I cou’d do for Mr. D. that wou’d be so acceptable to him, as making him acquainted with...
I can not at so late a day acknowledge your two favors of without an explanation which I am sure your goodness will accept as an apology. Having brought with me to this place a very feeble state of health, and finding the mass of business in the Department, at all times considerable, swelled to an unusual size by sundry temporary causes, it became absolutely necessary to devote the whole of my...
25 January 1802. In response to letter from Nicholas [not found], makes an agreement with him subject to conditions about the use of his name. RC ( ViU ). 1 p. Fragment. Left half of page is torn away. Addressee not indicated, but Nicholas’s docket is on verso. The precise details of the agreement are unclear, but it would seem that JM agreed to advance Nicholas the sum of $4,500 for sixty...
You have laid me under the greatest obligations. The favour that you have done me will be forever remembered. The caution that you suggest shall be observed. I wou’d rather suffer any inconvenience than you shou’d ever have cause to regret this instance of your friendship to me. You will observe the blanks as to date and sight; I did not know how to fill them up with out seeing one of the...
I have in a few days past received from Virginia $2500, which will prevent the necessity of my availing myself to the utmost extent of your goodness to me. I now only want $2000, for which I have sent a note. Be pleased to return it by the bearer. I am Dear Sir your hum. Serv. RC ( DLC ). Docketed by JM. Filed with the RC is an undated promissory note, in Nicholas’s hand but with signature...
