Inclosed is a petition of Pardon Smith for a pardon of a very serious crime. I must refer the matter to you & request you to inclose the papers to the Secy. of State & Attorney Gen. for their consideration. If they & you agree in advising me to pardon the criminal, I may perhaps do it, but not otherwise I am Sir / your humble Servant MHi : Adams Family Papers, Letterbooks.
I have the honor to enclose the copy of the resolves respecting rank passed the 24 November 1778 which are the basis of all the rules which are in operation. I have written to the Secretary of War this day upon the subject of officers, and enclosed him the list of the field officers for three regiments of the augmented army which might be raised in this State. I am under the necessity of...
I am honored with your two letters of the 18. Instant: and am happy, that your wishes on the subject of a convoy for the Vessels at the Havanna, had been anticipated. The enclosed copy of a letter from the Captain of a British sloop of war, to the British Consul at Charleston, affords no very honorable testimony of the courage of Capt Cochran, Commander of the Revenue Cutter. I am glad he was...
I have had the honour of receiving your Letters of the 18th. and 21st. The Letter from Mr. Pope to the President has been transmitted to the Commissioner of the Revenue (who is charged with the execution of the Laws concerning Light Houses) with the Presidents directions on the subject. The Commission returned for Mr. Dawes, includes not only his name, but those for the Commissioners for the...
I some time since appointed and commissioned three of my beloved men, viz. Alfred Moore, George Walton, and John Steele, to negotiate with you, for the attainment of certain objects by treaty, which I considered indispensable to the preservation of the happiness and welfare of my white and red children, and which, without injury to either, promised to perpetuate between them a lasting harmony....
I was very sorry when at Albany not to have seen you. I called the day after my arrival but you were then indisposed or abroad & the rest of my stay I was very unwell. An apprehension is excited here that in consequence of the Petitions of the Militia Officers the persons named to the new Companies will not be appointed. I take it for granted that this must be a groundless apprehension as far...
You will have observed in the list transmitted you the name of Mr. Jacob Morton as for a Majority. I understood him that he would accept it. But he now tells me he will take nothing less than a Regiment. This seems too much to begin with, if a competent person who has served can be found. Mr. Abijah Hammond who was in one of the N Eng Regiments during the War though not soliciting it would...
I am much as you left me yesterday—Weak, but (I hope) gathering strength. You have a receipt, at the foot of your A/c for the money paid me yesterday—In the one sent you some time ago to be forwarded to Mr Veatch it was mentioned that the 18/9 was to be charged to the A/c of Chas McDeavitt. Doctr Thorntons plan is returned with thanks; our love to Patsy & the Children; to Mrs Law also—with...
At the time your letter of the 20th instant (with others) was brought to this place, I was not in a situation to acknowledge the receipt of it: and no Post has happened since, by which I could do it. That of tomorrow, of which I shall avail myself, will be the first which offers. On the 18th at night, I was siezed with a fever; of which I took little notice until the 21st; when I was obliged...
Under the 19th. Feby. ulto. I took the liberty of communicating to you some of the reflections excited in my mind by the critical and alarm-state of the political relation between the United States of America and France. The vessel which conveyed the original of that Letter was conducted into England; but I hope that a duplicate, which went by a Mr. Lee , whose arrival in America I have heard...
