The proclamation of the 2d. of November is doing good here, and may perhaps bring this Ministry to Reason. I enclose Cobbets last Number, which touches upon our Relations with this Country, & Bell’s weekly Messenger of yesterday, which treats of the same Subject. My Letter to Ld. W. of the 10th. Instant wd. have gone into it more fully (though I was straightened for Time) but that I was afraid...

My professional prospects here are as flattering as I could have hoped or desired; and they assure me that, if I am spared for a...

Although I shall be perfectly prepared to argue one of them (the Case of the French National Vessel)...

Business requires my absence at Baltimore for a short Time—and as the Court is about to a[d]journ I intend to leave Washington Tomorrow. During my Absence I shall hold myself in Readiness to attend to any...
I regret sincerely that my professional Engagements here are so pressing and importunate as to put out of my power to be where my Duty to you requires. I am sure, however, that you will make Allowances for me—especially when you are aware that I am not unmindful, though absent from the Seat of Government, of what I owe to the Strength and prosperity of your administration. The particular...

Judge Storey has touched, in the enclosed Letter to me, upon a Subject which I have myself often thought of—and which may soon become of primary Importance. I have not Time at this Moment to say any thing upon it, and I am sure that I could suggest nothing which has not already occurred to you; but I suppose it to be proper to submit the Judge’s Letter to your Perusal. I have the Honour to be,...
