I have been honored with yours of the 20th Instant, and have too lively a sensibility to the terms in which you are pleased to request my services as a commissioner of the federal City, not to consult your perfect satisfaction in the reasons for my declining the Offer. They are of both a public & private nature. The business to which my present Office relates, has, from its first...
I have been honored with yours of the 28th Ultimo—The enquiry which you have been pleased to Submit to Genl Marshall & myself demands & receives our most serious attention—on his aid I rely for giving you accurate information, & he wishes an opportunity of Conversing with Colo. Innes before he decides —this we are prevented from by his absence at the Williamsburg District Court, a circumstance...
I am extremely sorry that I have not yet been enabled to give any satisfactory answer to your enquiry relating to Colo. Innes. He has not yet returned to this place; and having stoped somewhere short of Williamsburg, has been out of the way of the enquiries we have made for the purpose of ascertaining the time of his return. under this circumstance it is impossible to give you any ground...
I have been honored with yours of the 9th Instant, and immediately consulted Genl Marshall thereon. As to a change in Mr Henrys opinions upon the Constitution, he has been so little within the circle of our movements that we must rather rely on the intelligence of Genl Lee, who has had much communication with him, than our own observations. Mr Henry has for several years been in a degree...
The Express returned yesterday from Mr Henry—He was at a plantation more distant from hence than his place of residence, which occasioned the delay. I do myself the Honor to enclose herewith his answer to your letter. the agency you had been pleased to give me in your communication with that Gentleman, however unlimitted, would not have led me to take the liberty of opening his letter, had not...
Colo. Innes has just returned to Town and Genl Marshall, on a conversation with him, has formed an opinion favorable to his appointment to the Office of Attorney General. judging that too much time would be lost in my waiting for your notification of our powers on this subject being still in existence, we thought it best to sound him on the score of his acceptance, apprising him of the...
I have been honored with yours of the 1st Instant covering Twenty five dollars, the expence of the Express to Mr Henry, and receive with great Satisfaction the entire approbation you are pleased to express of the manner in which your several late requisitions have been attended to. you must before this have received the result of that which related to Colo. Innes, & I wish it had issued...
I did myself the honor to address you by the last Mail in regard to the temper with which our assembly has convened. nothing has yet been proposed in the House on the Treaty or any other federal subject, and I am much inclined to believe the discontented party are under some doubts what they can, with prospects of Succeeding, attempt. they will probably delay their measures in order that, as...
In mine of the 10th Instant, the day on which the assembly convened, I did myself the honor to give you, as nearly as I could, the temper in which it had met, and that which I supposed existed amongst the people at large, in respect to the Treaty & the administration of the Fedl Government, to which I added a conjecture, founded on former experience, that the spirit of dissatisfaction might...
On the 20th Ultimo I did myself the honor to communicate to you the result of a proposition in the lower House of assembly here, approving the vote of the two Senators from this State, against the Treaty, and at the same time, took pleasure in mentioning the decorum observed during the debate respecting yourself and the ratifying Senators. on the next day however, the active persons of the...
