I shall only say, that the National Government has succeeded beyond the expectations, even of the sanguine, and is more popular, and has given more general satisfaction than I expected ever to live to see. The addition of Vermont and Kentucky, the augmentation of our...

I feel my self much hurt by the unfair manner in which I have been represented in Major Andersons affair, and exceedingly mortified that it should leave an unfavorable impression of me on the mind of your Excellency. I am however convinced that if I could be permitted the indulgence of an interview for a quarter of an hour I should be able to convince your Excellency that I have certified...
Your favor of the 6th. came to hand two days ago. I heartily congratulate you on the success of your sale. It will determine me to make a decisive stroke in the same way next winter. I will banish the idea of making two bites at a cherry .

I am really ashamed to be so late in acknowleging the reciept of your favor of Jan. 10. which came to hand the 2d. of February. But during the session of Congress the throng of business was such as to oblige me to suspend all my private correspondence. Their recess now enables me to resume them.
