[ July 17, 1793. Letter not found. ] This letter is listed as No. 31 on a “List of 51 Papers Relative to Contract Between the United States and John C. Symmes” ( Carter, Territorial Papers Clarence E. Carter, ed., The Territorial Papers of the United States (Washington, 1934– ). , II, 389–91).

The very men who not long since, with a holy zeal, would have been glad to make an autos de fé of any one who should have presumed to assign bounds to our obligations to Louis the XVI are now ready to consign to the flames those who venture even to think, that he died a proper object of our sympathy or regret. The greatest pains are taken to excite against him our detestation. His supposed...
In answer to your letter of the 4th inst. I would advise to prepare the instruments in regard to Judge Symme’s purchase in the terms of the Act . This in an intermediate transaction must be safe on all sides. The Patents can adjust what may remain to be done and perhaps there may be opportunity in the mean time for an application to the legislature. With great consideration   I am Sir   Your...

According to the desire expressed in your letter of June 30. I called together Doctr Thornton, Mr Hallet, Mr Hoben, and a judicious undertaker of this place, Mr Carstairs, chosen by Dr Thornton as a competent judge of the objections made to his plan of the Capitol for the City of Washington. These objections were proposed and discussed on a view of the plans: the most material were the...
I have the honor to submit to you a letter from Major General Wayne of the 27th May last. The Secretary of the Treasury and myself have conceived it essential to the œconomical administration of the public interests as connected with this department that an Agent therefrom should be sent both to Georgia and to the South western territory for the objects specified in the instructions to Captain...
Since writing to you last, I set off with an intention of visiting your land on Potomac, and examining into the state of your lotts in Winchester and at Bath as you requested, but was unfortunately taken sick on the road, and confined by it so long, that I was obliged to return home before I could complete the journey, in order to begin my Harvest, and have the wheat secured as soon as...
I have duly received your letter of the 8th inst. enclosing papers respecting our unfortunate Citizens, Captives in Algiers, and now return them to you with my thanks for your attention in communicating them. In all our attempts to accomodate matters with the Algierines, & to releive our Citizens held in Captivity by them, we have been peculiarly unfortunate. Besides the deaths of Captn Paul...
I recieved yesterday your favor of the 28th. of June, for which I humbly thank you. Being unacquainted in Philadelphia, I was at a loss to know who I should get to be my arbitrator, but was happy to find by your letter that you intend to select (for arbitrators) men of integrity and other proper qualifications for deciding who is best entitled to the patent contended for. I was also happy to...
Mr. Coxe has the honor to inclose to Mr. Jefferson one of the most striking productions he has ever read. The Author fled from the place in which it was written and has become an inhabitant of the U.S. Mr. Coxe has promised to return it carefully. He is very sorry to inform Mr. Jefferson that the Pragers are not drawing nor can he find any Bills on Holland. He had some communication with Mr....
I was honored in due time with your favor of June 16. on the subject of an infectious disease supposed to be prevailing in the Windward islands, and the precautions necessary to be taken on our part. The absence of the President prevented it’s being immediately laid before him. That has been now done, and it is thought that no provision on the subject has been made by the laws of the general...
I have duly received your favor of the 13th. on the same subject with one written to the President, and I have the honor to inform you that the circumstances of the case not leaving room for the appointment therein proposed, the offer of service you are pleased to make cannot be made use of. I have the honor to be Sir Your most obedt. humble servt PrC ( DLC ); at foot of text: “Mr. Stephen...
According to the desire expressed in your letter of June 30. I called together Doctr. Thornton, Mr. Hallet, Mr. Hoben, and a judicious undertaker of this place, Mr. Carstairs, chosen by Dr. Thornton as a competent judge of the objections made to his plan of the Capitol for the City of Washington.

I am honored with your favor of the 8th. instant and have laid the same before the President of the US. The case of the refugees from St. Domingo is really deplorable, and calls with a loud voice for charitable succours: but it is a case wherein the general government has not been authorised to furnish them. It is therefore hoped that the particular states will come in with liberality to the...
