I have to acknolege the receipt of your favors of Feb. 28. and Mar. 5. I thank you for the information they contain, and will always be thankful to you for information in the same line. it will always be interesting to me to know the impression made by any particular thing on the public mind. my idea is that where two measures are equally right, it is a duty to the people to adopt that one...
Before I could answer your letter of Feb. 9. I had to write to mr Copeland & await an answer from him. this has been recieved some days, and I hereby, by virtue of the power of attorney from mrs Ariana Randolph to mr Boardley & myself jointly & severally, do release to you the one moiety of the judgment you conferred to Jenning’s executors on her behalf, satisfactory evidence being produced to...
I duly recieved your favor of yesterday. mr Barney’s memorial had before been delivered in. you may rest assured that no suspicions or distrust of the offices will be hastily admitted. I propose to consider the Post office as within the department of state, to which I have ever been of opinion it more properly belongs than to the treasury. the laws certainly do not contemplate it as a subject...
Your favor of the 18th. is recieved. in the meantime you will have recieved one of the 19th. from me . I have inserted in a letter to Colo. Humphreys what might be said with effect on the subject mentioned in your letter. if in time, I hope it will weigh. if not, when you take leave, you will of course recieve a letter, the tenor of which shall do you the justice due to you. I am in hopes...
This is the first moment, since the reciept of your favor of the 4th. inst. that it has been in my power to acknowlege it, and to thank you for the kind offer of a number of vines. by this time I presume the season is too far advanced for their removal, & consequently that I must decline till another year availing myself of your liberality. and even then I would confine it to a few only, & of...
Your favor of the 12th. is just now at hand. with respect to the time of your departure it will depend on the return of mr Dawson with the ratification of the Convention. we may expect this in 4. months: so that you may have time enough to prepare for your departure soon after his arrival. we shall join with you a Secretary of legation, to guard against any accident happening to yourself: and...
I recieved in due time your favor of Feb. 6. but never till now have had a moment’s leisure to make you my acknolegements for the permission to use your invention. my nailers are employed in hammering nails, except one cutter for four pennies only, our neighborhood requiring no other cut nail. so that it is but a small business with me. still I like to see even small things done to the best...
I have to acknolege the reciept of your friendly favor of the 12th and the pleasing sensations produced in my mind by it’s affectionate contents. I am made very happy by learning that the sentiments expressed in my inaugural address give general satisfaction, and hold out a ground on which our fellow citizens can once more unite. I am the more pleased, because these sentiments have been long &...
I have to acknowlege the reciept of your favor of the 20th. the appointment of Secy. of the navy, was immediately on receipt of your letter declining it, proposed to mr Jones of Philadelphia. I cannot have an answer from him till the night of the 26th. but I have great reason to expect a negative. in that case I will gladly for the public accept your offer to undertake it for a time. besides...
Chancellor Livingston has accepted his mission to France, but will not proceed till mr Dawson returns with the ratification of the Convention. I have thought it useful to the public, instead of permitting ministers to take a private Secretary of their own choice, to name a Secretary of legation, who will do the duties of the private Secretary, and on the same salary (of 1350. Dollars) but on...
