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...
Your favors of the 8th 13th & 20th Ulto have been duly received; the latter, enclosing one from Mr Henry. Your motives for forwarding my letter to that gentleman, and transposing the course of the business relative to it, meets my entire approbation; and opening his letter, in answer thereto, was an act of indispensable necessity—resulting therefrom—and of course is approved. I am not less...
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...
Receive, I pray you, my thanks for your obliging favor of the 6th Instt, and for other unacknowledged lettrs of antecedant date. As, except in a single instance, they contained information only, nothing more was necessary than to know they had got safe to hand: this they did, and I feel myself much obliged in your attention to my request; as I always shall be for such communications as you may...
