I have received with much sensibility the commission by which you have been pleased to honour me with an appointment to the office of Commissioner under the act of Congress for establishing the temporary and permanent seat of the government of the United States.—And while with diffidence I accept the trust, I can not forbear to express a hope that an erroneous estimate has not been made of my...
I received your letter of the 4th inst on Saturday last. After giving as much consideration as I could to the subject of the election of a President, which I perceived from conversation with some of the members of Congress who were here at christmas was likely to assume a serious form, it appeared to me that the proper line for the federal party to pursue in the case, was, to acquiesce with a...
I promised that on my return home I would examine & see what paiment I had made to mr Trumbull for the double pair of prints for which I paid you a moiety of the price. I found that on the 17th. Apr. 1790. I gave him an order on Leroy & Bayard, (we were then in New York) for six guineas which was paid & the order returned to me with his reciept & now in my possession. I presume therefore that...
I recieved some time ago your favor by Doctr. Carey together with the American Monitor , for which be pleased to accept my thanks. I have no doubt of it’s utility as a school-book as soon as the pupil is so far advanced as to reflect on what he reads, and that I believe is in an earlier stage than is generally imagined. I concur with you in the importance of inculcating into the minds of young...
Lyons, France, 12 Jan. 1801 . TJ’s great reputation prompts her to write in regard to the estate of Gaspard Cenas, who died in Philadelphia about two and a half years ago. Gaspard’s father François Cenas, who lives in a home for elderly people in Lyons, is unable to pursue inquiries with regard to the estate. The writer, the Widow Durand, is François Cenas’s daughter and has taken up the...
Your favor of July 14. with the papers accompanying it came safely to hand about the last of October. that containing remarks on the line of demarcation I perused according to your permission, and with great satisfaction, and then inclosed to a friend in Philadelphia to be forwarded to it’s address. the papers addressed to me, I took the liberty of communicating to the Philosophical society....
You will receive your account inclosed, made up to the end of the year; from which you will observe there was then an apparent balance in your favor of £1147–19–3. from this deduct £813–19–9 not due from M. & F. until the 1st. of April next, and the real balance which was then in our hands will be found to have been £333–19–6. I have heard of a small draught of yours in favor of James Lyon ,...
You will observe from your acct which I forward herewith, that you are not charged with the 50$: which I some time ago paid for you; this I omitted because I did not like there should be any appearance of mystery in pecuniary matters betwixt us. The order therefore I return inclosed. If you do not choose it should remain until I have the pleasure of seeing you—it will not now be inconvenient...
I am an old inhabitant of this Country and have been the Greater part of 17 years employd in the publick service and I flatter myself I have Dischard my Duty to the satisfaction of my Country and With Credit to myself & I niver did Ask or Except any off[ice] to which any pecuniary emolument has been annexed. I do [now] sir solicit the appointment of Marshall for the Kintucky District having...
I address you this Letter, upon a presumption, that you must, in a short time, become our chief Majestrate. I cannot believe the faction, who wish to disappoint the nation, are hardy enough, to make the attempt. It is on a subject, which must, I concieve, appear important to you, because, it is, highly so, to our country—therefore, I trust, you will not deem it premature, to offer it, thus...
