I arrived here in six weeks from the Downs whence the ship in which I came took her departure on the 5th of Novr; a day which all the whigs and many of the tories of Britain celebrated as the hundredth anniversary of the revolution. The party who oppose the administration in that country being about to seize so fair an occasion of canvassing for the next parliament the ministerial myrmidons...
Your affectionate and instructing letter of Decemr 2nd. did not reach me ‘till yesterday. I Embrace with my Affections, as well as my judgement that form of Government which you have proved from so many Authorities, to be the only One that can preserve political happiness. It was my attachment to a constitution composed of three branches, that first deprived me of the Confidence of the Whigs...

Vannes en Basse-Bretagne, 22 Jan. 1789 . “Une infortunée” appeals to TJ to perform for her “ en particulier Les Services que Vous Rendez à la France en Général. Privée, dès le Berceau, de père et de mère, d’une Naissance au-dessus du Médiocre, et peu favorisée de la fortune, j’ai été Reduite à prendre des pensionnaires. ” Six years ago, on recommendation of Mr. Barclay, “ Consul des...
J’ai beaucoup hésité, Monsieur, avant de vous envoyer cette lettre: je n’en connais point l’auteur, et il me semble qu’on ne doit pas vous importuner légèrement. Cependant si cette histoire était vraie, si un homme, après de longs services, étant réduit à un si grand degré de misère, il mériterait de l’intérêt, et je me reprocherais de ne lui en avoir pas accordé. Daignez donc, Monsieur,...
Il y a quelques semaines, Monsieur, que j’ai souhaité de vous demander une envoye de vin de Meursault. Mais la saison a eté si rude que j’ai pensé qu’il seroit mieux d’en attendre l’adoucissement. C’a tardé à arriver de sorte que je m’en trouve actuellement dans un besoin pressant. Je vous prie donc, Monsieur, de m’envoyer au plutot deux cens cinquante bouteilles de vin, goutte d’or de...
In one of my letters to Mr. Short I asked of him to convey me your commands relative to the letters I should receive for you; but not having received them, and presuming you will be some time stationary at Rome, I now send them. I do this the rather, because the greater part of them are from your father, and probably convey you domestic news. The several bills of exchange he had sent me for...
My last to you was of the 8th December, since which I have received your favors of Nov. 29. and Dec. 23. I have not received a single article of news from America since my last, except a letter from Dr. Franklin which makes known to me his health. I presume he is now retired from all public business as his term of 3. years for the presidency is expired. The affairs of this kingdom go on well....
