Another mail has arrived, since my last to you, without bringing me any letter from Judge Brooke. I infer, that you have experienc’d the same result. It is impossible therefore, to form any just estimate, of the time, when we shall receive the promised official communication. I am inform’d, by some, in whom I have perfect confidence, that the impression is daily gaining strength, that we mean...
I had the pleasure to receive yours of the 20th. by yesday’s mail. The letter from the governor, communicating our reappointment as Visitors of the University, and requiring a meeting of the board on the first Monday in next month, I had receiv’d, as I had one, from Mr Cabell, apprizing me, that it was a mere measure of form, in complyance with the law, & there would be no necessity for the...
I inclose to you two letters, one from Mr Tracie, soliciting the professorship held by Mr Long, when he retires from it, & the other from Mr Du Ponceau, in support of his application, and likewise a third, to the same effect, from Mr Peters, a son of Judge Peters, which last is rather of a private nature, but which I submit to your view. With the characters of Mr Du Ponceau, & Mr Peters, you...
I received yours of the 3d. instt, a few days after our arrival here, and shall profit of the information you have given me, that the meeting of the Visitors takes place, on the 10th. & not the 15th. of next month, at the University, as I had supposed. It is my intention to depart hence, for Loudon, in time to enable me, to make arrangements for the harvest, & other concerns there, & to reach...
On my return home, which I did, on the day contemplated when we parted, I had the satisfaction to find my daughter & Mr Hay in good health, & to receive letters from Mr Gouverneur advising me, that Mrs Monroe’s health, had improved, & was improving. I hope that you & Mrs Madison have been equally fortunate. I was so much overcome by the heat, & fatigue of the journey in consequence of it, that...
Mr Elliott Cresson a very respectable citizen of Philadelphia, with whom I became acquainted there, this sumr, has requested me to give him an introduction to you, which I do with pleasure. He has travelled much in foreign countries, & has acquired much information on interesting subjects, and enjoys the reputation of, & is I think, a worthy man. RC (DLC) .
I am just recovering, from a very severe attack of cold & fever, by which I have been confin’d to my room, & until a few days past to my bed nearly three weeks. The fever has left me, but I am very weak, & able to sit up, a portion of the day only. This is the second, since we parted, under which I have suffered. The first proceeded from a fall, from my horse, who fell with me, & in rising,...
Since the receipt of your last letter, application has been made to me, from citizens at Leesburg to know if I would act in the convention if elected, stating certain data, to which they were attached, with an intimation that they concluded that I was so likewise. I answered that altho’ there were many considerations, to induce me to remain at home, that I nevertheless, would act, if elected,...
We heard with great regret of your serious indisposition, but were relieved from anxiety, by a letter, some time since, from Mr. Taliaferro, which assured us, that you had nearly recovered, to perfect health. I have been much afflicted by repeated attacks, since we parted last, & by a recent one, which is the third, but am now so far restored, as to entertain a hope, that I shall be able to...
I am anxious to know the state of your health, & whether it is such, as will enable you to attend the convention. I most earnestly hope that you will be able to attend it, for if I go, I shall be much gratified to meet you there, and whether I do or not, I am satisfied that your presence, altho you might take no part, in the discussion, would have a very useful effect. My health since, we...
