Among the candidates for the office of Collector of the port of Annapolis is Mr Pinckney —a young gentleman in high estimation among his acquaintances—He is a store Keeper but not an importer. He is a steady, competent & worthy man to whom the office might be an object & of whose capacity as well as integrity I have a very good opinion. I am Sir with great deference Yr most obt ser. ALS ,...
As a vacancy will happen in the Treasury Department as intimated by the Secretary, it is possible there may be a vacancy in the departments subordinate to that of the Officer who intends to resign—Mr William Winder of Somerset, on the Eastern Shore of Maryland & now a Senator of that state, is a man of sound character, of strong parts & particularly qualify’d in accounts—He was engaged in the...
Agreeably to the wish you did me the honour of intimating last session I have endeavoured to obtain information respecting Mr Magowan’s case —I have not been successful though I have written to several gentlemen at & near Annapolis. The inclosed from Mr Duval, the Member, is an answer to a letter I wrote to him, uninformed as I was of his being attorney for the administrator. It may from some...

Fayette. I will extract part of Mr Williams’s (the Consul’s) letter of 22d Augt —he says that “Mr...
The late event which has taken place at paris will probably tend too much to the injury of America not to be extremely interesting to you. The storm which the Directory have for several months excited against the council of Five hundred has at length burst & the papers & letters announce the arrest of Fifty Four members of that body by order of the Directory on the Fourth inst. The two members...
In the haste of Captain Izard’s departure the copy of a letter of which I spoke was omitted in mine of the date of yesterday—but as he waits at Rotterdam for a wind, the copy which was not quite ready when he left this place, goes under cover in this. The letter as you will see is without place of Date, except the Initial & concluding letters of the word Paris, from whence it came ⟨ mutilated...
The day before yesterday I recieved a letter from Mr Williams, consul at Hamburgh, in which he informs me that M. La Fayette and his family were expected there on the next day—the Fourth Inst. —That all the family, except Madame la Fayette & one of her daughters, were well; & that they would probably embark in the Ship John, for America, if the health of the ladies permitted. I had written to...
I do myself the honour of informing You that the Peace between France & the Emperor was settled & the Treaty signed at Udina on the Seventeenth of Octr. The French Have all the limits which they have gained during the war, adjoining their territories—& Belgium expressly ceded to them—They have also all the Venetian Islands below the gulph of Lodrino in the Adriatic, as Corfu, Zante, & in the...
