However as a citizen I may depricate the consequences of your retirement from the helm of our political barque in the present lowering season, yet as your friend I sincerely congratulate you on having eased your body and mind of that heavy and anxious weight, & returned to a tranquil private life with both in full vigor enabling you to enjoy the sweets of domestic ease and social converse,...
I recieved some time ago from mr Edmund Randolph a note signed by mr Lyons & yourself undertaking to pay the amount of a decree of Royle’s admrs v. yourselves as admrs of Robinson, to mr Short or myself as his attorney. this undertaking is perfectly satisfactory, and I only wait your pleasure to be signified as to the time when, and place where it may suit you to make the paiment. as it was to...
As soon as I shall have communed with Mr. Lyons on the propriety of selling our stock, you shall be informed when payment shall be made of Royal’s decree vs. Robinson’s Admors; the place I suppose will be Richmond. The rise or fall of that market price, probably depends on events rather likely to produce the latter, & may dictate a present sale, but the scarcity of Cash, it is said, will...
Since my last Mr. Lyons hath held a Council with those learned in the Science, who are of Opinion that the present time is very unfavorable for the Sale of our Stock; what is called the market price being very low, & None or very few Purchasers at that; it is supposed that during the Month of April, it will be known whether a rise happens or is in near prospect, & our conclusion is to wait til...
I have to acknolege the reciept of your favor of Jan. 29. and as the rising of Congress seems now to be contemplated for about the last of this month, and it is necessary that I settle mr Short’s matter with the treasury before my departure, I take the liberty of saying a word on that subject. the sum you are to pay is to go to the credit of a demand which mr Short has on the treasury of the...
I have received yr. Friendly Card of Salutation , & was much concerned at the information that the Fall of Stock was below all price in Phila.—we have made Enquiry here & find that there is no Market at any price; At the same time we have in Vain endeavoured to borrow the money to accommodate Mr. Short, and it being said that the price at Phila. for 6 pr. Cents was 16/. & so in proportion For...
Your favor of April 25. has been duly recieved. were the case of mr Short’s demand one wherein he had left me to decide, I should not hesitate to accept the assurance in your letter in discharge of the US. but mr Short has peremptorily protested against acquitting the US. there was a hesitation on the part of the Secretary of state, whether mr Randolph’s receipt of the money was not by some...
Your patriarchal address to your county is running through all the republican papers, and has a very great effect on the people. it is short, simple and presents things in a view they readily comprehend. the character & circumstances too of the writer leave them without doubts of his motives. if like the patriarch of old you had but one blessing to give us, I should have wished it directed to...
I wrote you a petition on the 29th. of Jan. I know the extent of this trespass on your tranquility, and how indiscreet it would have been under any other circumstances. but the fate of this country, whether it shall be irretrievably plunged into a form of government rejected by the makers of the constitution or shall get back to the true principles of that instrument, depends on the turn which...
Since my last which was of the 14th. a Monsr. Leblanc, agent from Desfourneaux has come to town. he came in the Retaliation, and a letter from Desfourneaux, of which he was the bearer, now inclosed, will correct some circumstances in my statement relative to that vessel which were not very material. it shews at the same time that she was liberated without condition. still it is said , but I...
