Last night I received your favor of the 22d. and rejoice to find you have received dispatches from Stevens and Maitland. If the British merchant vessels are to enter the ports of Cape Francoise & Port au Prince under a flagg of truce, and ours are not & if an agent from the British government is not admitted, while one from the United States is, this will render it more necessary for us to be...
Mr. Jonathan Jackson delivered me the inclosed papers. Mr. Fitch’s letter I have never received. But the recommendations of Mr. Thatcher, Mr. Jackson and Mr Fitch are sufficient to satisfy me if you are satisfied, to make the appointment. MHi : Adams Family Papers, Letterbooks.
Inclosed are very respectable recommendations of Mr George Augustus Cushing to be consul at Havanna. They were presented to me yesterday by Mr. Cushing himself, who appears a genteel man. I told him that I considered Mr. Moreton as appointed. These papers however may be filed in your office & if any thing should happen to Mr. Moreton, Mr Cushing may be considered as a candidate I have the...
I received last night your favor of the 12th. which with all its inclosures shall be sent to the Attorney of the district that he may investigate the facts & make report to me. Every complaint of the kind from the British minister shall be treated with great respect and examined with the utmost candor, being from inclination as well as a sense of duty, disposed to cultivate the best...
Inclosed is a recommendation of William Jennison from Dr. Jennison of Cambridge to be a consul at St. Petersburg which you will file, with other solicitations for the same appointment. I have received your favor of June 12th, and have no objection to the proposed mission to the isle of France. I return you Jacob Lewis’s letter, also all the papers from the city of Washington. I pray you to...
I received yesterday your important letter of the 7th. The form of a proclamation—is sufficient I believe for the purpose; and I have signed it, that it may be compleated and published at a proper season without loss of time. I am glad the heads of departments did not form a definitive opinion on the very important question, whether it will be expedient to renew the commerce without a...
I return the papers inclosed in your favor of the 4th. relative to the consulship at the Havanna and am very well satisfied with the recommendation of Mr John Moreton, whose commission may be prepared for him when you think fit. As I am preparing to attend the funeral of my esteemed relation & beloved Gov Sumner, I have not time at present to advert to any other matters in your late...
I return you all the letters of Mr. King & Mr. Humphry’s which were inclosed with your letter of May 30th. Encourage Mr. King I pray you in your letters & instructions to him, to persevere with all the decision, which may be consistent with decency & politeness, in denying the right of British men of war to take from our ships of war, any men whatever & from our merchant vessel any Americans,...
I received yesterday your favor of the 21st. thank you for the intelligence & rejoice that our affairs with Algiers are no worse. Your other letter of the same date arrived at the same time. I have read the papers relative to Mr Daniel Hawley and agree with you in opinion that there is evidence of unskillfulness in business at least enough to justify us in looking for a more adroit consul or...
