Mr. Ogilvie, intending Soon to pass thro yr Part of the Country, is desirous of the acquaintance of a Person, whose Character he respects as much as yours—it is with pleasure I facilitate his wishes by this Introduction—he is a most ardent Lover of Science and republicanism, and is most assiduously employed in imparting the Principles of both to a respectable & increasing School of promising...
I have recd your favour of the 20th. and have no Objection to the plan you propose of raising a Company of Cavalry.—“Our means”! I never think of our means without shuddering! All the Declamations as well as Demonstrations of Trenchard & Gordon, Bolingbroke Bernard & Walpole, Hume, Burgh and Burke, rush upon my Memory and frighten me out of my Witts. The system of Debts and Taxes is levelling...
Recollecting that you had some doubt, at the last General Meeting of the Potomack Company, concerning the validity of your Powers to represent the State of Virginia in its interest therein, I wish to know whether those doubts have been removed by the Treasurer now in Office. The Stockholders are called upon, I perceive⟨,⟩ by a Printed (and I presume circular) letter in precise terms to attend...
I am not happy enough to be master of language calculated to express the grateful sense I feel for every instance of your condescending kindness vouchsafed towards me ever since divine goodness favored me with the knowledge of, and an acquaintance with, the justly revered Head of our Nation—But at no time have I injoyed this inestimable blessing with greater pleasure, or with a more lively...

Enclosed I have the honor of presenting a letter from Capt. Fondy, recommending Mr. Tobias V. Cuyler as a Candidate for a Lieutenancey in the 12th. Regt. I have not the pleasure of an acquaintance with Mr. Cuyler, but from the warmth of Capt. Fondy’s expressions relative to him, I have not the least doubt but Mr. Cuyler may with propriety be put in the scale with the other Candidates. The...
I have received the letter of Gen. Hamilton, inclosed in yours of 22 July, which I return as you desire. I see no material or reasonable objection against the appointment of Mr Thomas Y How to be a second lieutenant in the eleventh regiment. MHi : Adams Family Papers, Letterbooks.
The enclosed Oration I have taken the liberty to inscribe to “ the man, whom his country loves & honors, because he loves & honors his country ,” in the hope (perhaps a presumptuous one,) that, as it was written in a period too circumscribed to acquire a correct knowledge of documents, & printed in a manner too hasty to permit revision either of style or sentiment, it may escape censure from...

Exeter and Dover are nearly equal as to population, both situated at the head of navigation, on two seperate branches of Piscataqua River. The expence of transportation to &...
I have received your Circular Letter of the 22d. and am pleased to find, there is a prospect, that the supply of cloathing is likely to keep pace with the recruiting service—I did not know that there was any defficiency, or that any person had presumed to charge the War-office with neglect on this subject, untill I perused the extract of a Letter from the Secretary of War, of the 10th. inst....
