I have received your letter of the 28th of May with an other from Mr Lovell—It is difficult to say any thing in answer to either of these Letters, because it is yet undetermined what Employments there will be & who will have the disposal of them—The President alone must judge in the first instance of the merits and Qualifications of every Candidate for any of the most important Offices; and to...
Without previous apology or introduction to your Excellency, I haven taken the liberty to request for a few moments your attention to a subject which nearly concerns the future welfare and happiness of myself & family—Whether such a step in any situation can for me be proper I am at a loss to determine, but both my duty and my feelings towards them (especially as I have heard that application...
I find you, & I must agree , not to disagree , or we must cease to discuss political questions. I could as soon believe that the British parliament had once a right to tax America, as believe that the a fourth major part of the citizens of New York were federal , or that many of the federal minority were so, from proper motives.

By the last post I was favoured with yours of the twenty first of May. Mr. Duncan I presume has not come on. Neither by his letter or your own am I made acquainted with his Views or the Object of his Wishes—I can only say to him as to all others, that his application must be made to the President and it ought to be in writing.

When I address myself to your Excely in the Character of a Citizen, I feel myself (in my present Situation) at so great a remove from your personal attention, that I am considerably embarassed when I attempt it. However Sir, when I take a retrospect of your affectionate Care, and repeated declarations of regard for the Individuals who have served with fidelity under your Auspices through the...
In the bitterness and anguish of my soul, I sit down to exculpate myself from the charge contained in your excellency’s letter of the 31st ult. Though I have read it several times over, I cannot, owing to some ambiguity in the expression, tell whether you were offended with my returning your letter—with the contents of mine—or whether the latter was not broken open, and handed to your...
The humble petition of John Guarenau of the Yonkers, in the County of Westchester and State of New York, Humbly sheweth. That your petition[er] being reduced to an indigent situation by the late War, having lost all, save some Cloathing and two Beds, my Buildings and property that I left behind were destroyed by the Enemy. That your Petition[e]r, his House being Head Quarters for his honor...
