From Motives of long & un altered personal Esteem, & as a small Token or Keep-sake, I send you a Collection of Admiralty Decisions, published by my Son. I consented to their Publication, to save myself Trouble, & not with any View to juridical Fame. I know not that they will give you much Information, as a Member of the Corps diplomatique . As to the Subject which now justly rouses the...
Yours of yesterday was recieved in the course of the day. Our post-rider has not yet got to be punctual, arriving here from 2. to 4. hours later than he should do, that is to say from 3. to 5. oclock instead of 1. I mean to propose to him that being rigorously punctual in his arrival, I will always discharge him the moment he arrives instead of keeping him till 7. oclock as the Postmaster...
On my recent arrival in this City from the West Indies, I had the honor to receive a Commission, appointing me Consul for the Danish Island of Santa Cruz, for which am extremely thankful, and in the performance of the duties annexed to the appointment, be assured all my faculties shall be exerted, for the interest of the United States. The inclosed Bond, would have been forwarded in due time,...
No puedo menos de hacer presente a VS que observo en el Borron de mi carta del 6 de Agosto que el amanuence copió hablando del Barco detenido, que se dirigia a Nueva-Orleans debiendo copiar: que se dirigía desde Nueva-Orleans al Fuerte Stoddart. Aunque para el caso es lo mismo, me ha parecido de mi obligacion corregir esta equivocacion á fin de que reyne la exactitud de los hechos. Tengo la...
Your favor of the 6th. with 320. D. inclosed came safely to hand yesterday, for which I return you my thanks. I found my family all well, and we are now together at this place. our neighborhood is in a remarkeably healthy state at present. I recieve daily information from Lynhaven bay where the British ships remain quiet, going in & out occasionally. it remains to be seen what will be the case...
In my letter of the 7th. I informed you that on consultation at Washington it had been concluded best to commit the whole business of flags to Capt Decatur. I now find that I had not recollected our conclusion correctly, and that it had been understood that the commanding officers, by land & water should have equal authority to license the sending & recieving flags: which is not only proper,...
On recieving tenders of service from various military corps, I have usually addressed the answer to the officer commanding them. observing in the address of the Master Mariners of Baltimore of July 16. that, being probably unorganised, no commanding officer was named, I considered the first person on the list of subscribers as a kind of foreman, & therefore addressed my answer to him. I now,...
I received your letter here on my return from the Court of Erors & Appeals at Philadelphia. I send you my Copy of the memoirs, with some [emendations] and marginal notes, which tho they do not ornament the pages, will serve to explain some passages which the errors of the press converted into nonsense. I laboured under a very dangerous, and very painful illness while I composed my part, and I...
I recieved yesterday yours of the 7th. with the proposition for substituting 32,000. twelve month volunteers instead of 15,000. regulars as a disposeable force, and I like the idea much. it will of course be a subject of consideration when we all meet again, but I repeat that I like it greatly. On some occasion, a little before I left Washington, when we were together (all, I think except mr...
The enclosed communications received by the last evenings mail, present a general view of Indian affairs on our Northwestern borders.—there appears to be but one question of any importance that requires a decision, towit, what measures, if any, ought to be pursued in relation to the profits.—they undoubtedly are under foreign influence, & the one who resides with in the actual jurisdiction of...
