At the closure of a long and very fatiguing Session, it may be some amusement to see the minutes of the business and I have accordingly sent them since your departure. The House would have sat longer but the Senate got out of all patience, and as usual hurried over the business, reading off bills by their titles, and three readings in swift succession, Hurrying & scolding at poor Secretary...
Les merits, que votre Excellence S’â attiré toujours pour le bien d’humanité, le zèle noble et infatigable, dont vous avez gagné le vrai bien de vos frères; les plusieurs heures pleins de trouble, que vous avez Sacrifié pour la liberté de vos freres, et les differents dangers, que vous vous étes exposé pour defendre la liberté civile, et pour eloigner tout esclavage déshonorant l’humanité:...
I have the honor to inform you, that yesterday I received letters, from governor Blount, dated the 22’d of April, of more pacific appearance, than the one of the 14th of April to Doctor Williamson. Mr Shaw, and the Bloody Fellow, and other Cherokees who left this city the 19th of February, were on the 22’nd, within four miles of governor Blount; all well. The said indians had generally been...
I have at length taken up my Note. The manner of doing it (as I was disappointed in my Expectations of a Sale of my Lands, and had countermanded my Orders for Remittances from House in Consequence of those Expectations) was mortifying to me; but I am happy in being able to take your Name out of the Bank according to my Promise. I am much obliged to you for your friendly Aid.—Wish you all...

There are advices here of a later date which mention that a truce of nine days had been agreed upon, the result of which was not known on the 2d instant. I beg leave to enclose you a...
I am really ashamed for having so long delay’d opening the Correspondence which when I saw you I solicited: but many Occurrences, and particularly the Cares of my derangd Affairs have too much absorbd the whole of my Thoughts, the same Cause now I honestly confess in a manner extorts this from me, for, I hate writing, but having so good an Opporty. shou’d have wrote even if nothing but upon...
I had the honor of recieving on the 7th. inst., your letter of Janry. the 23d. brought by Mr. Morris who arrived here the evening of the 6th.—I am much flattered to recieve a new mark of the President’s confidence, which being highly honorable for me in all cases, is particularly so at present as you observe it imports his approbation of my past conduct. I will endeavour to merit it by...
I recieved on the 7th. inst. by Mr. Morris from London your private letter of Jan. 28 accompanying that of the 23d. of the same month public. I am now in the confusion of a precipitate though final departure from this place and write to you now for the last time from hence. I am particularly anxious that you should not attribute to me the length of time between the confirmation of the Senate...
