I reached this place last Week after a fatigueing journey through the Mud almost impassible. My return was very opportune for never were there such exertions by the Federalists to elect their candidates in all the districts round me, & particularly in my own. I believe however the majority will not be diminished in this district, but I am sure that if I had not opposed the unfortunate...
Your favor with the accompanying papers by the last mail reached this place before my return on yesterday from the Ohio, whither I had gone to attend the Elections—those of Wood & Ohio Counties are over, & the result has been as favorable as was expected. Never were so many voters polled in W & O for never were the exertions of My friends & those of Mr. Lindsley my opponent half so great. At...
The polls are just closed for Harrison, & the result is Jackson 409 Lindsley 219 — last monday Monongalia — Jackson 320 — do — 284 729 503 Wood & Ohio — 274 241 1003 744 Majority 259 the Counties of Brooke & Randolph have 450 votes & will give me 300 of them. The elections have been more warmly contested than ever heretofore & thus far my majority has encreased. In haste yours affectionately &...
I have the pleasure to inform you that my calculations as to the vote of Brooke County have been more than realized the Vote in it was Jackson 206—Lindsley 37 making an aggregate majority of 454 votes which is 100 more than at any antecedent election. If the accommodation with England had preceded the election—an accommodation as honorable to the Executive as gratifying to the nation: the...
I shall set off this morning for Clarksburg, not however without the expectation that your proclamation will soon reach me for convening Congress. The british perfidy has kindled a flame throughout the Country, & if the Prest. assume the responsibility of doing, or forbearing any thing he may incur much censure. I write to you my dear Sir freely. You know me I trust perfectly, & will...
I hope you have returned safe back to Montpelier whither the last papers stated you had again set out. As I conjectured and as I wished, I perceive you have by your recent proclamation renewed the non-intercourse with G Britain. Some of the papers particularly the “Enquirer” with more promptitude than discretion, or judgment; pronounced it beyond your powers. It was hoped & expected that Mr....
Have the goodness to enclose the within Packet to Mrs. Washington. We hear very little now of the movements of the British Cabinet towards us, & still less of Jackson’s course—the public expectation has so long been abused that a state of Apathy and indifference has in some degree succeeded the excitement produced by British perfidy. They do not now contemplate the evils inflicted by G B with...
I have the honor to transmit to you the enclosed resolutions, in compliance with the wishes of the officers and privates of the 119th regiment of Virginia militia. I derive peculiar satisfaction from assuring you, that notwithstanding many of the persons who united in the resolutions have been inimical to the last and to the present administration, their hostility is particularly offered up...
I have never acquired the legal character of Guardian to my Child—Guardians ad litem can only be appointed by the Courts issuing process against infants; & as there has been no appointment there would be an impropriety in my acknowledging service of the Spa., which I should not hesitate to do if the act would be legal. Your Mo Obt Servt There can be no objection to acknowledging the service by...
I thank you with great sincerity for your congratulations on my union with Miss M. Nothing is now wanting to complete my wishes but her introduction to my best friends beyond the mountains, & my restoration to health. The first is dependant upon the last, which has received so severe a shock by my late unfortunate fall that I shall be unable to travel to W-City this year: & hence the necessity...
