A letter of yours, aged three months and eight days, which has lain unobserved, during all this time in the cover of another letter in my pocket Book has just fallen out upon me, like Yorick’s sermon, from Stevinus, upon the Corporal where I was looking, not after “Prince Maurice’s sailing chariot,” but after something altogether as unlike the result of my search. It is never too late to be...
I am duly sensible of your polite attention in your letter of the 13. Inst. and its inclosure. It is doing me a very acceptable and important service, to provide me, as you propose, with the documents of the expiring Congress and will lay me under many obligations. Should any of them be too voluminous for your franking power to cover you need not hesitate to inclose them, on that account, by...
I received your favor of the 23d instant the evening before last, and am happy to find you enjoying so good spirits amid the discomfiture of honest principles which has occurred in our old parent Massachusetts. This event, though altogether unexpected to me, is easily accounted for after it has happened. I do not, however, impute it to the measures adopted by the Legislature at their summer...
I have to acknowledge yours of the 4th Inst. and two subsequent, inclosing public documents and to express my grateful sense of these attentions. Your opinions concerning the late changes in Massachusetts and your reasonings and impressions resulting from them, entirely coincide with them mine. I was particularly well pleased that you find no fault with the “medecines” administered, but...
Your favour of the 15th: instt. came to hand last Evening and I thank you for the remarks it contains—Shortness of time, now prevents me from replying to them so fully as I should wish—My principal object at present is to inclose for your perusal a bill, which has pass’d the House of Representatives, and is now before the Senate “to regulate the clearance of armed merchant vessels”—The...
I received in September last, your favour of 11. July preceding, which was brought by Mr: Jones, together with the second part of the third Volume of the Memoirs of the American Academy; intended for the Imperial Academy of Sciences in this City; which has been duly presented to that body. Early in the course of the last Winter, I received from their Secretary the Volume last published of...
On my arrival in this Country, I received your favour of 23. March last, accompanying a packet containing several copies of the Third Volume of the Memoirs of the American Academy, addressed to various literary and Scientific Institutions in London, and one to a similar Society at Bath—They were all delivered at the dwelling-houses of the Secretaries or principal members of the several...
I am requested by Mess Kavanagh and Cottril late owners of the Ship Hibernia to make some inquiries of your department, which they think may possibly result in some information, which may be useful to them. That Ship was taken, when bound in December 1800, on a voyage from Waldoborough to Jamaica, with a cargo of lumber, by a French Privateer, (Le Jeune Creole) fitted out of a Spanish port...
In answer to your Letter of the 4th Instant I have the honor to State, that it is made the duty of the board of commissioners provided by the Treaty lately concluded at this place between the United States and Spain to decide upon the Claims that may be brought before it, according to their own construction of the import of that instrument, and that an opinion upon the Nature or Character of...
Know ye, That upon the Day of the Date hereof, before Me, at a Court of Probate, held at Dedham, in the County aforesaid, the Will of John Adams, late of Quincy in the said County, Doctor of Laws deceased, a Copy of which to these Presents annexed, was proved, approved, and allowed: Who having, while he lived, and at the Time of his Death, Goods, Chattels, Rights or Credits in the County...
