The Secretary of State, to whom was referred the resolution of the Senate of the 20th. instant, requesting “the President to lay before the Senate a copy of the correspondence between the government of the United States and the government of Spain, relative to the subjects of controversy between the two nations, except such part as he may deem improper to disclose,” has the honor to submit to...
The Secretary of State, to whom has been referred the resolution of the Senate of the 28th of last month, requesting the President to cause to be laid before the Senate such information as he may possess touching the execution of so much of the first article of the late treaty of peace and amity between His Britannic Majesty and the United States of America as relates to the restitution of...
The enclosed was handed to me by Mr. Swift, who informd me that he had recd. it from Mr. Daschkoff, without being instructed to presentit here. He read me an extract from Mr. Ds letter stating that the passage in the message, giving information to Congress that the Russian mediation had been declind in the first instance, gave him the first intelligence of the fact.

I saw Mr. Bishop this morning, on the subject of his late letter to me, communicated to Mr. Crawford. I told him that no opinion had been formed against him, & that the representation to his prejudice, which had been made to the dept. of the Treasury, & sent to him by Mr. Crawford, had been sent to him, in a spirit of candour, to enable him to give such explanation, as he might think proper:...
I saw Mr. de Neuville to day and explained the cause, why, the article was not sent to the press. He was satisfied. I had mistaken his motives, in suggesting to me, his intention in writing another note. It was not, to press former demands or, relinquish them, but, leaving things where they were, to conciliate. If he writes any thing he will shew it to me, before making it official, as I had...
I send you a very interesting & indeed important Letter from Col: Jessup. Having this moment receivd it, I have not time to make any comment on it, especially as I have Cols. Barbour & Lindsay with me, as also Mr Monterey who lately left you. very respectfully yrs. DLC : Papers of James Madison, Rives Collection.
I send many letters recd. by this mail in favor of Mr. Beaseley, which I have not had time to peruse. On the subject of the marshall, to be appointed at New York, I shall direct, by next mail, a blank comn. to be forwarded to you, and it is probable I may be with you, by the time it arrives, as I shall leave this, according to present prospects, then, for your house on my way to Washington, to...
I now enclose you a project of a letter to Ct. Nesselrode, on the subject of Mr Kosloff, with a short one to Mr Daschkoff, putting it under his last. You seemd to think that it wod. be best, to answer Daschkoff s letter, by one to his superior, in which, I entirely concur. In that case, the more concise the letter to Daschkoff the better. It will of course go sealed, I mean that to Ct....
I sent you a Sketch of a reply to the French minister, subject to your correction, to be forwarded afterwards to Mr Graham. If the offer is discussd with him, there will be no end to it, & we shall lose ground in every step. He must I think be a little alarm’d by adverting to the fate of Jackson, and Genet. Unless some tone is taken, all hope of indemnity is lost. I infer from yours, that this...
Owing to some accident I did not receive your letter of the 28. untill after Mr. Rush left me, which I much regret, as it deprivd me of the opportunity, of conferring with him, on the answers to be given to those of the French & Russian ministers, which accompanied it. I am astonished at the contents of both, as they put us to trials, which, if either of them had good sense or moderation would...
