The late appointment of a Minister Resident to the Hague, has brought under consideration the condition of Mr. Dumas, and the question, whether he is, or is not, at present in the service of the U.S.? Mr. Dumas, very early in the war, was employed first by Dr. Franklin, afterwards by Mr. Adams, to transact the affairs of the U.S. in Holland. Congress never passed any express vote of...
The enclosed came to my hand yesterday evening—I have heard nothing more of Mr. Johnson.—I wish the business to which these letters relate, was brought to an issue—an agreeable one is not, I perceive to be expected. RC ( DLC ); addressed: “Mr. Jefferson”; endorsed by TJ as received 7 Feb. 1792 and recorded in SJPL , where the letter is described as pertaining to “Federal city.” The enclosed...
An account presented to me by Mr. John B. Cutting, for expenditures incurred by him in liberating the seamen of the United States in British ports during the impressments which took place under that government in the year 1790, obliges me to recall some former transactions to your mind.

The P—— requests that Mr. J—— would give the enclosed letter and papers a reading between this and dinner—and come an hour before it, that he may have an opportunity of conversing with him on the subject of them.

If you and Mr. Madison could make it convenient to take a family dinner with me to day—or, if engagements prevent this—wd. come, at any hour in the afternoon most convenient to yourselves we would converse fully, and try to fix on some plan for carrying the Affairs of the Federal district into execution. Under present appearances it is difficult, but it is nevertheless necessary to resolve on...
Before I give any decided opinion upon the letter you have written to Majr. L’Enfont, or on the alterations proposed for the engraved plan, I wish to converse with you on several matters which relate to this business.—This may be, if nothing on your part renders it inconvenient, immediately after 8 Oclock to morrow, at wch. hour I breakfast, and at which if agreeable to yourself I should be...
The enclosed meets my approbation.—Did Walker accord willingly, or reluctantly? The Plan I think, ought to appear as the Work of L’Enfont.—The one prepared for engraving not doing so, is, I presume, one cause of his dissatisfaction.—If he consents to act upon the conditions proposed, and can point out any radical defects, or others to amend which will be a gratification to him, not improper in...
The President desires Mr. Jefferson will give the enclosed Papers an attentive perusal, and return them to him as soon as he has done it; that Colo. Hamilton may have an opportunity of doing it also.—At 10 ’oclock tomorrow the P—— will speak with the heads of departments upon the subject of them, and requests their attendance accordingly. RC ( DLC ); addressed: “Mr. Jeffer[son]”; endorsed by...
I have perused the enclosed answer to your letter, to Majr. L’Enfont.—Both are returned.—A final decision thereupon must be had.—I wish it to be taken upon the best ground, and with the best advice.—Send it, I pray you, to Mr. Madison who is better acquainted with the whole of this matter than any other.—I wish also that the Attorney General may see, and become acquainted with the...
The P—— returns the enclosed Report to Mr. J——. Boundary and the Navigation of the Missisipi are clearly defined—The propositions respecting Commerce he presumes is equally so, but having little knowledge of this subject he trusts to the guards provided by Mr. J——. The P—— has put one or two queries in the Margin of the Report merely for consideration. RC ( DLC ); addressed: “Mr. Jefferson”;...
