I am long without any of your much respected favors in the letter way. You have been so obliging as to consign me some Tobo by the Cyrus & Venus which have been landed, but are not sold. Our Staple Commodity is much lowered in Value in almost every European Market, owing to the unusual Abundance of last Crop joined to as unusual meaness of quality. Yours is of the better Sorts, yet far...
I had the Pleasure to write to you the 21st August; since which, it having been suggested to me, that the Appointment of Consuls may take place ere long, I beg Leave to renew to you the Desire I have to continue the offer of my Services to my Country in that Capacity: provided the office be deemed Necessary for this port & it would not debar me from Trading. In the inclosed I have taken the...
Since my Respects of 6 October, I have your favor of 21 June by Mr James, who did not come here, but sent it from London. I should have been happy to have attended to him had he passed this way. It is not in my power by this opportunity to hand you Sales of your Tobaccoes by the Venus and Cyrus—this last named Consignment is under considerable Inconvenience & disadvantage for having been...
Letter not found. Ca. 1 November 1790 Mentioned in JM to Ambrose Madison, 2 Jan. 1791 . Reports that the European tobacco market is glutted. Recommends a delay in further shipments if possible.
I return you my best Thanks for the Satisfaction I have recieved from the State papers you were so kind as to send me & I do rejoice most cordially with you on the pleasing prospect of increasing Happiness to our Country—perhaps you may be amused with the perusal of the inclosed. Our Vessells continue in a Manner to monopolize the Freights hence to America—altho they take in a price at 50 or...
Since my Respects of 29th July I have recieved 2 Hhds of your Tobaccoe ⅌ Venus—landed—the Success is just arrived with another. I thank you for these Consignments—your Draft in favor Philips & C for £21 is honored. Our Virginia Staple is so far mended as to have better Demand of late, tho’ with very little amendment of price. I again repeat my Recommendation that you give Directions to have a...
I am much obliged to you for the papers & pamphlet you sent me by the Grange, wch. have afforded me much Entertainment. I am happy to see the malicious predictions of the lying prophet so completely counteracted by the prosperity of the Country he took so much pleasure in debasing & vilifying by Invective. Whenever any Thing here presents that promises Entertainment to you in that way, I shall...
My last were a few Lines of 7th past. These are principally to accompany some News papers to which I refer you for what is passing on the Continent. From the fall in the British Stocks one may concieve an Aprehension of this Country being involved. Nevertheless it appears the prevailing Opinion that she will take no part. I am glad to see your House had passed the Consular Bill. I am anxious...
I have sometimes been drawn into Letters of Recommendation to you, not with my own intire aprobation, for which I beg your pardon. ’Tis tho’ by no means so on this Occasion. The Bearer the Revd Mr Toulmin goes to our Country on an Errand wherein we are so much interested, that I come forward with all my Heart & intirely of my own accord to request you particularly to favor him with your good...
It is long since I had this pleasure. With this you have the review of last month, in which I wish you may find Something entertaining. It is with great anxiety we Wait Intelligence from America subsequent to your being informed of the Instructions from this Government to their Cruizers. Many of our Vessells have been Captured & brought in—principally from the Suspicion of there being French...
I had this pleasure the 8 November. All your Sales being now closed, I lay them before you. The 3 stemed Hhds were treated in the Manner I had several Times recommended; & I am well pleased to see they have answered my Expectations. For the News I beg to refer you to the papers wch. will be delivered to you by this opportunity. Notwithstanding the immense warlike preparations, I stil[l]...
Presuming you are to be at Philadelphia as usual, I shall, by every opportunity, during the Session, endeavour to present you some Newspapers &, before this shall reach, I expect you will have received some. Conjectures on the Issue of the Pending Negociations at Paris are various. The prospects tho’ do not appear favorable to peace. During my being in Office at this place I have been induced,...
