At the same moment that I am assured your Excellencies own inclinations would have been infinitely more gratified in domestic than in public life, I must beg leave to offer my sincere congratulations upon the unanimity with which your Country men, divided as they have been in every other political act, have called you to the highest and most important Trust in the Republic, as it evidences the...
I had the honor a few days ago to receive your Letter of the 30th Ult. enclosing a Commission for the Office of District Marshal for Virginia, together with sundry Acts upon the Judiciary system. The confidence you are pleased Sir, to repose in me, in confering this Commission, is an evidence of your good opinion exceedingly flattering and gratifying; and the terms in which you have thought...
Enclosed I have the Honor to transmit a Voucher for the Expence of forwarding your letter to the Secretary of State as requested in yours of the 11th Instant, being thirteen dollars & one third of a dollar. the milage is that which has been established by the Executive of the State, for such Service, & a faithful Express is not to be got lower. I have the Honor to be with the greatest respect...
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...

Innes, & I wish it had issued...
