On Monday evening I returned to my family. Days of constant activity, and some of fatigue were succeeded by nights of sound sleep.

My labours have been crowned with Success & one of the Locks in Wood Creek is contemplated, a Second greatly advanced and a third will be...
I write in haste in hopes that this may overtake Mr. Lyle and correct an error in my last. Notwithstanding the appointment of Genl Victor & several other officers for Louisiana, among others a Compt[r]oller of the forests, no Prefet is yet appointed—nor is the difference relative to the Floridas settled. Spain insists that they are not ceded and I have certain information that two days ago the...

I once more return the proposed regulations concerning the Mississipi trade. Nothing can be substituted to the agency of the Consul or Vice Consul at New Orleans: that agency constitutes the essence of the regulations & was always contemplated whilst the bill was framed & discussed: the identity of the article cannot otherways be proven than at the port where the vessel takes her cargo, or...
The Secretary of the Treasury, respectfully represents to the President of the United States, that Joshua Head , collector of customs for the port of Waldoborough (Massachusetts) has failed in rendering his quarterly accounts, none later than those for the quarter ending on the 30th september, last, having been received: nor has he, from that time, rendered any weekly, or other return,...
I had the honor to recieve your note of the 13th. inst. with the enclosures from Genl La fayette, and I pray you to accept my thanks for your politeness in recieving & forwarding them to me.

It was extremely natural under the circumstances which attended the rect. of the package, and is one for which I have...
