I have the honor to enclose you various letters, some of them merely for your information, and others which will perhaps require answers. Among them are the three letters you received from Mr. Thornton, with sketches of answers, I have drafted. They seemed to me to present a fit, if not a necessary occasion of explaining to him our right to admit French privateers and prizes to an equal...
Letter not found. 8 August 1801. Acknowledged in Wagner to JM, 17 Aug. 1801 (first letter) , and mentioned in JM to Jefferson, ca. 12 Aug. 1801 . Discusses demurrage costs for Peace and Plenty and authorizes printing the federal laws in German in Pennsylvania.
I have the honor to enclose to you several public and private letters. Those of importance among the former, are from Mr. Lear, Mr. King and Mr. Thornton. I also received a letter from Mr. Savage, the Agent for seamen at Jamaica, in which he says, that a number of seamen have lately been discharged and that his certificates are respected, on which account he suggests, that the Masters of our...
Letter not found. 15 August 1801. Acknowledged in Wagner to JM, 24 Aug. 1801 . Requests documents on tonnage and countervailing duties imposed by Great Britain on American shipping.
I was duly honored with your favor of the 8th. The demurrage of the Peace and Plenty was advantageously settled, on the terms mentioned in the enclosed letter from the Purveyor, and the money has been paid. I am sorry that it should have been encreased by the tardiness of Capt. Shaw. With respect to printing the laws in a german paper in Pennsylvania, I promised Mr. Gallatin, that I would not...
I forgot to ask your direction about the Cattle mentioned in Mr. Eaton’s last letter. Are they to be sent? And if Dr. Gillasspy (to whom I have written) does not chuse to execute the timber-commission, ought we to do it? With perfect respect &c. RC ( DLC ). See 14 Apr. postscript to William Eaton’s 10 Apr. 1801 dispatch ( PJM-SS Robert J. Brugger et al., eds., The Papers of James Madison:...
Letter not found. Ca. 22 August 1801. Acknowledged in Wagner to JM, 31 Aug. 1801 , and mentioned in JM to Jefferson, 26 Aug. 1801 . Authorizes shipment of powder and ball to dey of Algiers and instructs Wagner to honor Eaton’s charter contract, to take no action on Eaton’s commissions for timber and cattle, and to send Jefferson copies of the State Department’s last letters to Eaton.
I was duly honored with your favor of the 15th. and another since received from Mr. Hooper. I am sorry it was not in my power to aid him in drawing the money from the southward, as the arrangements of the Paymaster General and Quarter-master General did not admit of their accommodating him, and as no other branch of Government, as I can learn, stand in need of funds there. Agreeably to your...
Letter not found. Ca. 29 August 1801. Acknowledged in Wagner to JM, 7 Sept. 1801 . Encloses various letters as well as patents from Jefferson.
I have had the honor to receive, in due time, your letter of the last post. I have written to Mr. Helmbold, to inform me of his terms for printing the laws in German, and, if they prove reasonable, shall direct him to proceed. The enclosed two letters, which I have written to the Collector of New York, will shew the footing on which the business of the Ragusan Brigantine stands. I expect in a...
